New President Jack Short with Campbell McKee


20TH October 2022



A new President was appointed to the European Mobility Group (EMG) at the Group’s recent AGM in Apen, Germany.

Dr Jack Short, former Secretary General of the International Transport Forum (formerly the European Conference of Ministers of Transport), was unanimously voted in by EMG Members to replace the outgoing President, Campbell McKee, who has been in post since 2013. Dr Short brings a wealth of background knowledge and experience in a variety of transport issues, notably mobility for people with disabilities which was a flagship activity for ECMT/ITF.

Commenting on his new role, Dr Short said: “I am delighted to be appointed to EMG and look forward to working with the Members to ensure that the needs of disabled people as drivers or passengers are taken fully into account when it comes to the new challenges of 21st century vehicle design and adaptation. There are many new legislative proposals that could impact on the conversion and adaptation industry and we need to keep abreast of these developments for the benefit of EMG Members and end users alike.”

Campbell McKee said: “I am sorry to be leaving behind the work of EMG at such a crucial crossroads in our industry, but delighted to hand the baton to Jack who has years of experience in this field at the highest levels of national government. I wish him every success.”

The formal handover will take place on 1st November.
