Mr Javier Fernández de Bordons, former Eurovent Vice-President and Board Member of Eurovent Certita Certification, suddenly passed away on 8 January 2021. A great HVACR industry leader and a true gentleman, Javier was a valued long-term member of the Eurovent family. In the lines below, our Secretary General Felix Van Eyken looks back at his time at Eurovent and commemorates his commitment and efforts.
Our friend and long-term industry colleague Javier de Bordons is sadly no longer with us.
Javier was active in the HVACR industry for over 30 years. He has contributed to the sector in various roles throughout these years, of which I’d like to point out his Presidency (2009-2012) and Vice-Presidency (2005-2009) of Eurovent’s Spanish Member Association AFEC.
I met Javier for the first time in June 2007, during Eurovent’s 50th General Assembly in Madrid. Javier served as Eurovent’s Vice-President between 2006 and 2012. After that, he joined the Board of Eurovent Certita Certification until March 2020. He was very much appreciated and well-liked in the HVACR industry.
Javier made a big impression on the entire European HVACR industry also as a speaker at the Eurovent Summit in Seville in September 2018. In his visionary contribution, Javier demonstrated his leadership by shedding light on several industry-critical questions in a state-of-the-art manner. Anyone who would like to be reminded of Javier’s great charisma and knowledge, can refer to this link.
Let me express our deepest condolences to Javier’s family and loved ones and wish them a lot of strength in these difficult times. Javier, on behalf of all of us at Eurovent and the entire industry, I thank you for everything.
Rest in peace,
