Gerrit Jessen, regional managing director of MCI Germany, Austria and Czech Republic, will commence his annual term on 1 January 2017. He joins the association as chair of finance. 

This follows MPI's announcement of a new board of directors for the UK and Ireland earlier this year.

Jessen has been involved with MPI since 1999 in various volunteer leadership roles. He has been a member of the International Board of Directors since 2012, sits on the Board of the German Convention Bureau and is Vice Chair of the visitBerlin Convention Partner Association.


Commenting on his recent appointment, Jessen said: "I have been a member of MPI for over 17 years now and have held various volunteer leadership roles during that time. MPI has been instrumental for my business success over the years. Building Community is what drives our business at MCI and what is also driving me personally."

Enterprise Holdings Inc.’s Corporate Travel and Meetings Director Amanda Armstrong is the 2016 MPI’s Vice Chair of Finance and will become the new MPI Chair-Elect once Jessen’s term starts.
