Jane Montgomery re-elected to FESI Board

Jane Montgomery re-elected to FESI Board

The Federation of the European Sporting Goods Industry – FESI – which represents the interests of 1,800 sporting goods manufacturers across Europe, has re-elected the FSPA’s Managing Director, Jane Montgomery, to its Board of Directors at the recent Annual General Meeting held in Rome.

“I’m delighted to be able to continue my work with the Federation at this crucial time for the European sports and play industries,” said Montgomery. “70 to 75 per cent of FESI’s membership is made up of SMEs and the European Sporting Goods Industry employs over 650,000 EU citizens with an annual turnover of some 66 billion euro.

“Since the UK voted to leave the EU, the Federation of Sports and Play Associations has been working closely with UK government, ensuring that our industry has as much information as possible as we extricate ourselves from the EU.

“These are uncertain times for sports and play businesses, not just in the UK but across Europe as well. As the voice of the UK sports and play industries, the FSPA will continue to represent our interests with our counterparts in Europe.”

FESI President, Luca Businaro comments: “Globally, as the leading organisation in the European sporting goods industry, we aim to develop the economic and innovation dimension in sport so as to reinforce political attention towards our sector.

“We are striving for sport to be officially recognised as a European industrial sector, to foster innovation in sport and to further increase research and development in the field of physical activity and health.”
