The European technology association DigitalEurope elected a new board for two years, where Doris Põld, the CEO of the ITL, took the role of vice president. Peter Weckesser (Schneider Electric) was elected president of the union.

41 European technology associations and 109 companies belong to the umbrella organization uniting the technology associations of different European countries. As usual, DigitalEurope’s board includes 10 representatives from national professional associations and 10 company representatives.

Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director General of DIGITALEUROPE said: ‘I am delighted to welcome Peter Weckesser and Doris Põld to the leadership team of DIGITALEUROPE. Peter brings extensive senior business experience in digital transformation while Doris’ invaluable insights from Estonia, Europe’s most advanced digital nation, will drive our mission forward. Together, they portray the diversity and strength of Europe’s tech ecosystem.’

‘We are dealing with one of Europe’s most influential business associations, which stands for a digital, secure and competitive European common market,’ explains ITL CEO Doris Põld. ‘ITL has been cooperating very closely with our umbrella organization for years in the field of European legislation and policy-making. As a cooperation network of the technology sector, we at ITL see every day how important it is to jointly stand for the sustainable operation of our digital society and a safe and comfortable business environment. If we want to take the next step to secure Europe’s competitiveness and ensure the functioning of the common market, we must hold these discussions in pan-European cooperation platforms.’

Doris Põld has worked in the Estonian information and communication technology sector for over 15 years and has been managing ITL since 2021.

The goal of ITL is to make it easier for Estonian ICT companies to operate: to encourage business in the ICT sector in Estonia, to provide added value to the Estonian economy and to facilitate cooperation between companies.
