The NGV related industry grieves for Peter Boisen, NGVA Europe founder and Honorary Chairman
thursday, 14. March 2013
We regret to inform that our Honorary Chairman and founder of NGVA Europe, Peter Boisen, passed away last week's Monday. He was suffering from a severe illness since 2011, but nevertheless contributed and has been deeply involved in our work and activities until the very end.
When NGVA Europe was founded in 2008, Peter was Chairman of the Board of Directors until 2009, since then he had a permanent seat on the NGVA Europe BoD as Honorary Chairman. Before, he was also Chairman of ENGVA. He has earlier worked in the shipping, oil and gas, and steel industries, but spent the last 23 years of his working career in the automotive industry.
Peter dedicated his entire life to the NGV cause and we believe we can truly say that our industry and the European Association would not be where and what it is today without his passion and enthusiasm. Last Peter was chairing and coordinating the CRC (Country Representative Committee) activities until 2011, also responsible for providing regular NGV market updates and statistics, he furthermore created the NGV World headlines, amongst the many other appreciated things and his achievements. Peter was rewarded with many prizes throughout his successful and exemplary career and he was also highly honoured by NGV Global with the NGV Champion Award presented at the NGV Global 2012 conference in Mexico.
Gerhard Holtmeier, Chairman of the NGVA Europe Board of Directors, dignifies Peter's achievements and his personality: “On behalf of the Board and staff, our thoughts are with Peter's family. We will always remember him and thank him for all the great work and his ground laying enthusiasm throughout all these years from the early establishment of our association until to what we have achieved so far. The entire NGV related industry is grieving for Peter's loss.”
The entire NGVA Europe staff will miss Peter as a very warm-hearted and professional colleague and friend, but the entire industry has also lost one of the most respected personalities and NGV experts worldwide, who never lost sight of our high aims and lived the NGV vision.
We will try to carry on in memory of Peter as he would have wanted us to, in order to make him proud and make his heritage unforgotten.
Peter Boisen, rest in peace.
