Beumelburg joins Heidelberg Materials from SLB (formerly Schlumberger), where she was a member of the executive management team as chief strategy and sustainability officer. Previously, Beumelburg spent more than 16 years in global leadership roles at Siemens, Siemens Energy, and Hydrogen Europe, focusing on business strategy and excellence as well as energy systems. She holds a PhD in robotics and automation from the University of Stuttgart.

“With the appointment of Katharina Beumelburg to the managing board of Heidelberg Materials, we will place an even greater focus on the implementation of our sustainability strategy,” said Dr. Bernd Scheifele, chairman of the supervisory board of Heidelberg Materials. “We will expand the necessary technologies and partnerships to further drive decarbonization. Dr. Beumelburg has extensive experience in carbon capture and storage from the oil and gas industry and brings a wealth of expert knowledge in developing partnerships across sectors.

“We thank Nicola Kimm for her commitment in setting up and developing Heidelberg Materials’ sustainability strategy. She has made a significant contribution to establishing our company as a recognized industry leader in sustainability. This is also reflected in the very good positioning in leading ESG ratings,” he concluded.
