Before becoming the President of HEM, Krawczyk served as Huber’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Strategy & Corporate Development since 2013. He brings more than 20 years of experience in industrial and consumer products, including expertise in financial management, strategy, corporate development, marketing and operations to his new leadership role. A native of the Detroit area, Krawczyk earned an MBA as well as an MS and BS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan.
Prior to joining Huber, Krawczyk was EVP and Chief Financial Officer of Gibson Guitar Corporation. He also was Global Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Marketing for Belden and has held financial and operational leadership roles at DTE Energy, Delphi Automotive and Ford Motor Company.
Looking ahead, Krawczyk plans to lead HEM into a new era of growth and change in order to successfully position the company for future generations of shareholders and employees.
“Building on a strong track record of focused market leadership, superior customer service and operational excellence, HEM has a unique opportunity today to leverage its manufacturing and applications expertise in order to pursue growth in its core businesses and expand across a range of premium functional ingredient business segments,” Krawczyk said. “We look forward to creating long-term sustainable value for all the HEM stakeholders.”
Krawczyk’s leadership was instrumental in Huber’s largest acquisition in over 10 years, the 2016 purchase of the Martinswerk business from Albemarle Corporation to become part of HEM’s already successful Fire Retardant Additives (FRA) business unit and create a global leading non-halogen flame retardants business. This move marked the latest in a series of investments in FRA, including the acquisition of the Kemgard® smoke suppressant product line from Sherwin-Williams in 2010 and purchase of the Almatis specialty hydrates business in 2012. In addition, Krawczyk led Huber’s $630 million sale of HEM’s Silica business unit to Evonik Industries AG in 2017.

The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson today announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has issued a positive opinion for apalutamide, a next generation oral androgen receptor inhibitor for the treatment of adult patients with non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) who are at high risk of developing metastatic disease.2 The CHMP’s positive opinion will now be reviewed by the European Commission (EC), which has the authority to grant approval for the use of apalutamide.
