He has intimate knowledge and experience in vehicle safety regulations and has built up an extensive international network with key stakeholders in and outside industry.
Announcing the appointment, Tingvall said: "I am delighted that Andre has agreed to take this important role. He possesses a unique combination of technical know-how, stakeholder relationships and firsthand experience on Euro NCAP's board of directors. The board looks forward to work with Andre to continue the success of the programme and broaden our impact on the safety market".
Accepting his position, Seeck said "I am very pleased and honoured to accept this post. I am eager to make a positive contribution to development of Euro NCAP and to drive forward the initiatives of the organisation in good cooperation with all involved".
