02.2018

In October representatives of 16 of our Strategic Preferred Suppliers travelled to Buenos

Aires to meet up with newly founded FEGIME Latam. At our Argentinian colleagues’ first

Supplier Event they wanted to experience at first-hand what opportunities cooperation

in South America could offer.

Day One began with presentations of FEGIME, FEGIME Latam and the Argentinian

economy - which is currently going through a crisis. Our Argentinian friends could do

little to influence the external factors, but they were very happy to show their guests

their set-up. In the afternoon, a visit to member wholesaler…

Editorial

In his internal Christmas

Letter to us David Garratt

described all that we

achieved in 2018. As great

as those successes were, I

don’t want to repeat them

but prefer to look to the

future.

Let’s start with FEGIME Latamwho will be joining us

from January 2019. At the beginning of December

our Argentinian friends completed their fusion

with the “Unelec” group to cement their position

as Number 1 on the market. I would like to take

this opportunity to welcome our new members

and their families to FEGIME! The European idea

of family businesses working together to develop

solutions for the future is also becoming increasingly

attractive on the other side of the Atlantic.

And that is a trend that we are doing our utmost to

promote: at the beginning of December FEGIME

Deutschland purchased a majority share in the

software

houseGeneon.We

all value this company

that – to name just a few of its achievements – has

developed and provided tools for our international

database and for FEGIMEmedia. With Geneon

we have ensured the availability of more resources

for research and development. In this way we will

be able to support our personal service with up-

to-date digital tools.

This acquisition also supports our “Strategy 2020+”

which I will not go into here. This strategy will be

presented at our Congress in Nice – that will also

be a highlight in the coming year!

I wish you all a successful start to a Healthy and

Prosperous 2019 – see you in France!
