YARDLEY, PA – Hans Henkes has rejoined SieMatic North America as president & CEO. Henkes previously helmed the kitchen cabinetry manufacturer from 2008 to 2017, leading the company to record sales growth, the firm reports. Prior to returning to SieMatic last fall, Henkes was consultant to private equity and had served as president & CEO of another German cabinet brand.
“At SieMatic, our role as a design leader and manufacturer is to help our clients realize their dreams of creating timeless kitchens,” said Henkes. “We pride ourselves in working directly with architects and designers to deliver kitchens that are forward-thinking yet enduring,” he said, adding, “Design is at the core of our business, and holding that as a constant is central to our growth strategy during the next few years.”
Henkes said one of his chief focuses for fueling more business from existing and new clients will be to embrace SieMatic’s role as an industry innovator while understanding and balancing what the market truly wants and needs.
Along with Henkes, several other key leaders have returned to SieMatic, including the director of operations and the v.p. of multi-unit sales. Henkes said he also plans to focus on the next generation of leaders, including implementing internships and work study programs that develop young team members while remaining agile to changing market dynamics.
