Dr Martin Stark, chairman of the Advisory Board, will fill the position of CEO as interim manager with immediate effect until further notice. During this period Dr Stark will suspend his mandate as chairman of the Advisory Board of Siempelkamp.

The Advisory Board is currently looking for a suitable candidate to fill the position at the helm of the Krefeld-based company for the long term.

Along with the company executives, Christoph Michel has set the business course of Siempelkamp since 2018 in order to further position the company in its development and orientation in markets and adjust it to current market requirements.

“The Advisory Board of Siempelkamp GmbH & Co. KG thanks Christoph Michel and wishes him all the best for the future,” said Dr Dieter Siempelkamp, honorary chairman of the Advisory Board.

“Business continuity and reliability are central success factors at Siempelkamp. In Dr Stark we have gained a top manager as CEO who will successfully continue on the company’s established path until we have found a suitable successor.”

Dr Martin Stark was appointed chairman of the Advisory Board of Siempelkamp in 2017. He took over the position from Dr Dieter Siempelkamp, who had chaired the Advisory Board since resigning from Siempelkamp’s Board of Directors in 2003.

Dr Stark has many years of expertise as a successful business leader and supervisory board member, and until 2013 was a member of the management board of the global technology group Freudenberg.
