DIN EN 81-76 draft published
The draft of DIN EN 81-76 has been published (Evacuation of persons with disabilities using lifts). The standard is harmonised under the Lifts Directive.
TK Elevator has reorganized its Communications & Marketing department. Dr. Anahid Rickmann took over as the head of this department at the beginning of October 2021.
The political scientist comes from the Swiss automotive supplier Autoneum, where she was responsible for the company's global communications and sustainability strategy as Head of Corporate Communications & Responsibility. Previously, she worked as spokesperson for the Axpo Group and the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA).
Rickmann succeeds Nicole Pichin, who has led Communications & Product Marketing at TK Elevator for the past 14 months.
The new Head of Communications & Marketing will be supported by Nicholas Neu, who has currently taken on the position of Head of External Communications. The economist comes from Hübner, a supplier to the bus and rail industry, where he was responsible for worldwide communications and global marketing in recent years.
Before that, Neu built up the communications department at Wingas, a natural gas company operating throughout Europe, and was press spokesman at the pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim and at the BASF subsidiary Wintershall.
The function as Head of Internal Communications & Projects will be taken over by Laura Herrmann. She joins from pet food manufacturer Royal Canin, a segment of Mars Petcare, where she was Communications Manager responsible for internal and external communications for the DACH markets. In previous years, Herrmann headed internal communications at the perfumery chain Douglas as Internal Communications Officer.
The new Communications & Marketing team is complemented by Michael Lemke as Head of Marketing. He has many years of marketing experience in the elevator and escalator sector and already worked in the thyssenkrupp business area before it’s carve-out.
In recent years, Lemke was responsible for the strategic realignment of marketing communications for TK Elevator in the Asia Pacific region. Before that, he worked for several years as a marketing manager in the marketing of escalators.
