Sika appoints new chief technology officer


Hasler, who began his career at Sika in 1989 as a chemist, succeeds Urs Mäder, who has decided to step down from the post.

For the past three years, Hasler has served as head of the company's Global Automotive division.

Mäder, who has been chief technology officer and member of the Sika's management since 2005, will remain at the company and assume responsibility for corporate research and development projects. As chief technology officer, Mäder oversaw the establishment of more efficient technology management, including the globalization of research and development activities, the introduction of a professional intellectual property management system and the alignment of the research and development organization with Sika's strategic target markets.
