Nova Paint Club elects new president at conference in Germany
The Nova Paint Club has elected Michael Dayan, CEO of Tambour, Israel's leading paint company, to be its new president, replacing Joao Serrenho of CIN Group. The Nova Paint Club, which has ten member companies operating in 80 countries, recently met in Ludwigsburg, Germany. The event was hosted by Wolfram Votteler, Rainer Votteler and Dietmar Votteler, joint managing directors of German member Votteler Lackfabrik GmbH & Co. KG.

The meeting in Germany gave members the opportunity to visit Votteler Lackfabrik's modern technical center, including the research laboratories and  extensive testing facilities. Votteler Lackfabrik is a family-owned business specializing in the development, manufacture and marketing of coatings for wood, wooden materials and plastics. It has wholly-owned subsidiaries in Switzerland and Austria.

During the Conference delegates received reports from technical directors highlighting successful cooperation on issues such as cost savings, product development and environmental improvements. Attendees were also able to plan significant future coordination on a wide range of emerging technologies.

The meeting also heard a keynote presentation from Professor Dr. Ewald Wessling, global expert on digital change. Wessling spoke on how technology change has become the biggest external challenge for CEOs. He stressed that companies must embrace the new era of collaboration as networks like Wikipedia and social media extend into the corporate world.

The next board meeting of the Nova Paint Club will be hosted by Pintuco in  April 2013 in Bogota, Colombia, and will be held alongside a meeting of Nova's marketing directors.


The Nova Paint Club is an international organisation founded in 1983 to provide a framework for leading global independent paint companies to benefit from exchanges of technical information, technology and expertise in all areas of their operations.  

The Nova Paint Club currently has 10 core members with their main operations based in Argentina (Sinteplast SA), Canada (Cloverdale Paint Inc), Colombia (Pintuco), Germany (Votteler Lackfabrik GmbH & Co),  Greece, (Druckfarben Hellas SA), India, (Asian Paints), Israel (Tambour Ltd), Portugal (CIN SA), Spain (Barnices Valentine S.A.), and the USA (Vogel Paint Inc). These companies also have other operations and/or subsidiaries, which extends their total involvement to around 80 countries throughout the world.
