Over the last few years the Maintenance Manager’s role has changed significantly, due to the rapid technological developments in the field of maintenance. Reason enough to present the European Maintenance Award again during the upcoming maintenance conference, which is held every two years.

Salvetti Foundation and EFMNS nominated the following four European candidates for this prestigious price: Mario Cikojevic (Maintenance Manager with Cemex in Croatia), Marc De Kerf (Global Expert Maintenance & Asset Management Petrochemicals, with BASF in Belgium), Jimmy Öberg (Technical Manager with Kopparberg in Sweden) and Antonio Ros Pau (former Maintenance Manager with SEAT in Spain).

Marc De Kerf has been nominated for his vision on the ‘maintenance of the future’ on the operational as well as the conceptual level. Mario Cikojevic owes his nomination to his successful manner of positively influencing his employees’ mindset. Mario engages each team member to actually contribute to the realisation of organisational objectives. He explains his approach in detail in his book ‘Maintenance Strategy – of industrial facilities through RCM methodolgy implementation’.

Jimmy Öberg, the third nominee, shows the importance of good leadership for the successful implementation of a maintenance management system. Last, but not least, the fourth nominee is Antonio Ros Pau, former Maintenance Manager at SEAT in Spain. Ros Pau owes his nomination to the various projects he carried out at SEAT, empowering the maintenance department in this company. As a result, the department is no longer seen as a cost item but as a centre of expertise, effectively contributing to an increase of the automotive manufacturer’s profit margins.

The winner of the ‘European Maintenance Manager Award’ will be announced during a large-scale event on September 25th, 2018. The attendees will find out everything about the winner’s strategy and approach. Keynote speaker is futurist Ben Spring, the co-author of the book ‘What to Do When Machines Do Everything: How to Get Ahead in a World of AI, Algorithms, Bots and Big Data’. He will talk about how an organization can implement these new technologies to remain competitive in the next few years.

The award event takes place as part of the Euromaintenance 4.0. With 106 speakers, 50 case studies, 20 workshops and a focused exhibition with 60 innovations, this conference is a unique opportunity to learn how maintenance, reliability and asset management can contribute optimally to the best possible results of a company, thanks to the right combination of good practices and new intelligent solutions. There are still seats available for the European Maintenance Manager Night held on September 25th, 2018 .
