Bernhard Klinger, Chief Business Development Officer at Hytera Mobilfunk (HMF), has once again been elected Chairman of the Board of the Federal Association of Professional Mobile Radio (PMeV) – NETWORK FOR SECURE COMMUNICATIONS.
As a result, he will continue to lead the association of the German PMR industry for the next two years and will actively contribute to the development of professional mobile radio and set the direction for the future – as a competent authority for politics, ministries and associations.
Bernhard Klinger was unanimously confirmed in his position by the board members at the PMeV online meeting after the election of the board. “I am grateful for the renewed trust of the member companies and the board members and look forward to continuing our work together,” he says. “For the PMeV, the main focus is now on crucial issues, such as broadband use for critical infrastructures and companies in Germany, securing frequencies for narrowband applications, but also technical progress and the accompanying changes in the PMR market.”
