Effective January 1, 2023, Kim Scholze has been appointed to the management board of Sympatex Technologies GmbH, Unterföhring/Germany. As Chief Sales & Marketing Officer (CSMO), she will be responsible for Sympatex's global sales and marketing strategy. Current CEO, Dr. Rüdiger Fox, remains on the management board, with a particular focus on new technologies and the transformation of the supply chain towards consistent circularity.
Scholze joined the company as Chief Sustainable Community Manager and Head of Storytelling on March 15, 2021. With her on the board, the company's orientation aligns with the sector having the focus away from making the most profit possible and on attitude, collaboration and a shared industry drive towards sustainability.
Sympatex produces functional textiles from recycled and recyclable mono-materials and will no longer use new petroleum-based materials in the future. Instead, used textiles will be transformed into new, high-quality membranes, laminates and functional textiles. The company works with selected brand partners worldwide to close the textile loop together.
