Mareike Krüger is the CEO of the surface coater
Mareike Krüger was appointed as Managing Director (CEO) of Aalberts Surface Treatment GmbH as of 01.02.2020. She has been part of the group since 2003 and provides her extensive experience in various fields. After her studies of business informatics she joined the former AHC Oberflächentechnik GmbH as process manager and was head of the quality department since 2007. In 2012 she successfully took over the plant management of the Kaufbeuren site and in 2015 she will be the managing director. Since January 2019, she has also headed the Business Unit South with the locations Helpfau-Uttendorf (Austria), Munich, Kaufbeuren and Altdorf (Switzerland).
Ralf Krämer, previously CFO, left the company on 19 May 2020 to take on new challenges. Over the past 17 years, Mr. Krämer held various executive positions in the Finance / Controlling / M&A department. This reduces the number of managing directors from three to two. This streamlining of the management should now be maintained in view of the upcoming economic turbulences.
With her extensive expertise in surface technology and her know-how in business management, Mareike Krüger, together with her experienced management colleague Matthias Kester, will continue to drive the expansion of the business and accompany the strategic orientation of Aalberts surface treatment.
