Sika appoints new group management member

BAAR, SWITZERLAND: Sika AG said it has appointed Yumi Kan as its new head building systems & industry and member of group management effective 1 July. The 45 year old Vietnamese succeeds Silvio Ponti, who has decided to retire this year-end.

Kan joined Sika Vietnam in 1992 and as a general manager has built up Sika Vietnam into one of the most successful companies within the Sika Group. In 2011 she was promoted to area manager responsible for Vietnam, Philippines, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar. With her vast experience in markets and technologies and her 20 year-plus track record of successful leadership within Sika, she is the ideal person for this group management position and will ensure the continuation of Sika’s growth strategy.

Ponti has been a member of group management for the last 14 years and also deputy CEO since 2005. During his years with Sika he successfully developed the business in Europe and led the worldwide introduction of technologies and innovations in the building systems & industry area.
