We were blindsided by the news of the sudden death of our friend and President of the SGeT, Engelbert Hörmannsdorfer, who served as Chairman of the Board since the founding of the SGeT in March 2012. As Chairman, the success and common good of our work were especially close to his heart. He rigorously promoted our members’ interests, and was a tireless spokesman in the press for standardization in the embedded community. In deep and speechless sorrow we pay tribute to Engelbert Hörmannsdorfer and honor his memory.
Our thoughts and compassion are with his family and loved ones.
