Leather Naturally announced that Mr. Dietrich Tegtmeyer and Mr. Carl Flach have been confirmed by the Leather Naturally membership as a new member of the Supervisory Council as per immediate effect.
Dietrich Tegtmeyer, responsible for Business Development & Industry Relations at TFL states: “The nomination to the Supervisory Council is a great honor to me. Although Leather Naturally can be proud on their achievements over the past 10 years, I strongly believe, there is still a lot potential for growth. It should be our vision, that Leather Naturally becomes the industry wide Multi Stake Holder Initiative representing our Business Sector. Every tanner, supplier and brand should feel inspired to become a proud member of Leather Naturally.”
Carl Flach, Senior Director Strategies for ISA Tantec Group is adding: ”I am honored to be chosen as a member of the supervisory council of Leather Naturally. Leather Naturally is every day getting stronger within the leather industry and its stakeholders. We now need to bring out the message to the designers of the brands and the customers in the street that leather is a durable, sustainable & beautiful material. Leather is, when produced within the best available technologies, a valuable material in terms of waste management from other industries and an elegant and much better environmental alternative than petrochemical based products that aim to imitate the look of leather.”
