Seneffe, June 8, 2017. At today's Annual General Meeting in Seneffe (Belgium), the shareholders of Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG SA added Paola Eckert-Palvarini as a new director to the board, thereby bringing the number of women almost on par with the number of male board members. Mrs. Eckert-Palvarini, a graduate of the University of Milan (Italy), is a radiation physicist by education and has broad knowledge of the industry and the technical aspects of brachytherapy.

She is also a partner to a venture capital company specializing on medical device companies.
"We are pleased to add an experienced radiation therapy woman to our board and are looking forward to a successful cooperation", said Dr. Harald Hasselmann, Chief Executive Officer of Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG.
