“It is with great sadness and dismay that we have to announce that our long-time managing director, Siegfried Neuberger, has died suddenly on June 13.” This announcement by ZIV left many people in the business speechless and bewildered.
Siegfried Neuberger has been serving ZIV, the German trade association for the bicycle business, for 25 years as managing director for 25 years. As the ZIV representative, he also played a leading role in CONEBI, the confederation of the European bicycle industry. He was the long-standing chair of CEN TC 333 – Cycles and had been recently re-elected in that position, whilst also being very active in ISO TC 149/SC1.
Our deepest sympathy go to his wife and two sons.
