In last week’s newsletter, we released erroneous information regarding the leadership of GTB. It is under the widely admired 11-year leadership of Dieter Matthes that the GTB has achieved important successes in its mission to devise and consult on technical provisions for ECE and international auto regulations.
Geoffrey Draper now succeeds Dieter Matthes as chairman of the GTB, and will work closely with Bart Terburg who continues as Vice Chairman and with Davide Puglisi, the GTB Executive Secretary. Draper‘s distinguished career in automotive lighting includes a great many significant contributions to the state of the art internationally at Lucas,Carello, Magneti-Marelli, and Koito;
Terburg was instrumental in General Electric’s automotive lighting activities and has recently joined Osram-Sylvania.
