The good ship DFK is governed by an executive board comprising the president, deputy president/immediate past-president and three vice-presidents representing members in the DFK regions Asia-Pacific, EMEA and Americas. The executive board is elected by the DFK advisory board, which comprises representatives from the larger national groups and from each of the regions. Members of the executive and advisory boards are volunteers from member firms who give their time freely for the good of the organisation.
At the helm is the executive director, who is responsible to the board of directors for the day-to-day operation of the association, and working with the DFK executive office teams around the world. DFK International creates special value for clients with cross-border interests by helping DFK member firms cooperate across the world to deliver international services on time and at a competitive cost.
To provide a regional focus and support cross-border activities at the regional level, member firms are grouped into three regions. Each region is represented at board level by a regional vice-president. The three regions are:
Europe, Middle East & Africa
In countries where DFK has many members, firms buddy up into National Groups. These cooperate to give high quality services, and meet frequently at conferences, seminars, specialist committees, user groups, and these days, online!
