SICK Shuffles Executive Board

By Joel Davies -

After 23 years at SICK (headquartered in Waldkirch), Executive Board member Dr Martin Krämer will leave the company in September.

Dr Krämer has been a member of the Executive Board with responsibility for the Personnel and Legal & Compliance portfolios since July 2012. Krämer started working for SICK in 1999 as Manager of the Legal Department. His ideas were largely responsible for the creation of SICK’s Sensor Intelligence Academy (SIA) for training and further education.

Krämer also campaigned for the SICK Family and Health Center, enabling on-site child care in Waldkirch. He was committed to the company’s own School Research Center and the SICK Education Center, supporting youth development and training.

From 1 July 2022, Nicole Kurek, most recently Senior Vice President of Talent and Transformation Management at the BMW Group, will join the Executive Board with responsibility for the People & Culture portfolio. The qualified educational scientist has a Master’s degree from Saarland University and an MBA, specializing in finance.

Kurek moves to SICK from the BMW Group, where she held management positions in personnel departments for a variety of divisions, located in Germany as well as the regions of Europe and Asia. Kurek most recently led the BMW Group’s global Talent and Transformation Management.

As a member of SICK’s Executive Board, she will be responsible for further developing the company’s corporate culture and new working environments, as well as driving forward the company’s global alignment. Kurek was born in Saarland in 1974 and will be a member of the Executive Board team under the Chairmanship of Dr Mats Gökstorp.

“I most sincerely thank Dr Martin Krämer now in the name of the entire Supervisory Board for his great commitment”, said Klaus M. Bukenberger, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of SICK AG. “In particular, his lasting achievements in the area of training, further education and organizational development focusing on digitalization have prepared the company and its employees for the challenges of the future.

“At the same time, I wish Nicole Kurek all the best for her start at SICK and great success in her new position. We look forward to working with her and are convinced that her expertise will enrich the company”.
