EDANA congratulates Jean Marie Becker on his recent retirement
15 January 2021
EDANA would like to congratulate Jean Marie Becker on his recent retirement and use the opportunity to pay tribute to his years of sterling service to our industry. Jean Marie sat on the EDANA board between 2008 and 2013, acting as Board Chair from 2009 to 2011.

Jean Marie began his career in 1980 in the Quality Department of Brignoud (at the time a part of the Dexter Corporation). By 1999 when Dexter joined the Ahlstrom group, he was the Business Line Manager for Technical Nonwovens, and by 2004 was managing the Industrial Nonwovens division at Ahlstrom. Jean Marie finished his career with a fresh challenge at the packaging and lamination producer Walki Group as Executive Vice President, Consumer Packaging.

He will be fondly remembered by his peers in the EDANA network where he was equally appreciated for his “bon vivant” style and his deep experience and advice on industry topics.

We wish him well as sets out to enjoy the slopes near his Grenoble home and his family life as a young retiree.

We look forward to hopefully wishing Jean Marie well in person at one of our gatherings to celebrate the 50th anniversary of EDANA, to be held when circumstances allow.
