Daniel Dalkowski appointed as new EFIT managing director

On 1 February 2019, Daniel Dalkowski was appointed by the Board of Directors as the new Managing Director of the European Research Association for Innovative Textile Care (EFIT). He succeeds Robin Schmitt, who has been a member of the Executive Board since 2015 and who has become the sole Managing Director of EFIT since October 2018.

Friedrich Eberhard, 1st Chairman of the EFIT, thanked Schmitt for the commitment and the successful restructuring of the association which was successfully initiated last year and is looking forward to continuing on this course with the new management.

Dalkowski (30) has been responsible for communications at the German Textile Cleaning Association (DTV) for about four years. Additionally, he has been – and will continue to be – responsible for the management of the North Rhine-Westphalian and East German regional associations for the past two years. Dalkowski: “The textile care industry is not new to me, nor many of the issues that concern companies – whether it’s the lack of skilled workers, the increasing cost pressure or the public perception of textile cleaning. The EFIT has created a unique selling point with the “fashion care” system, which I intend to evolve and expand in the future”.
