Healthcare group: New top management at Fresenius and dialysis subsidiary FMC

At the troubled health care group Fresenius and its dialysis subsidiary Fresenius Medical Care, there will be a change in leadership on Saturday.

Michael Sen, previously head of the Kabi liquid medicine division, is promoted to CEO of Fresenius and replaces Stephan Sturm, who is leaving the Bad Homburg Dax group. At Fresenius Medical Care (FMC), Carla Kriwet takes over the helm, replacing the retired predecessor Rice Powell.

Fresenius, Germany's largest hospital operator and also represented with clinics in Spain and South America, has had a lot of unrest behind it. The group is struggling with weaker growth and the pandemic, which initially led to the cancellation of many operations in the clinics. Recently, the epidemic has particularly affected FMC, as many kidney patients die from Covid. FMC also suffers from staff shortages in the US. In recent years, Fresenius has had to adjust its profit targets in a row. Fresenius shares have lost around two-thirds of their value in the past five years. Sturm has initiated an austerity program and initiated a debate about splitting up the group.

The former Siemens manager Sen (53) has the task of getting Fresenius back on track with annual sales of more than 37 billion euros and regaining the confidence of investors. The 51-year-old Kriwet should bring a breath of fresh air to FMC. Kriwet, who comes from the Bosch subsidiary BSH Hausgeräte, will be the second woman, alongside the head of the pharmaceutical and chemical group Merck, Belén Garijo, to run a Dax group alone.
