Jørgen Krebs, president of the Denmark Shoe Trade Association, has been promoted from vice president to president of Ceddec, the European shoe retailers' confederation, taking over from Jean Fabre of France. Massimo Donda, president of Federcalzatura, the Italian shoe retailers' federation, has made his return to Ceddec's top echelons as vice president, sitting next to Yirio Gorski of Finland. The super-active Donda fulfilled two mandates as president of Ceddec between 2003 and 2006. His subsequent resignation was related to disagreements with Roeland Smets, general manager of the European shoe industry federation, CEC, who is now retiring.
