Kimball International Announces Executive Leadership Changes for Hospitality Business Unit

Mar 16, 2022

Last week, Kimball International announced that Kathy Sigler, current president of the company’s Hospitality Business Unit, will retire after a successful 32-year career with the company. Mark Johnson has been named Sigler’s successor and will take on the role of President, Hospitality.

Sigler led Kimball Hospitality for four years and has been instrumental in steering the business through the pandemic and setting the company up for success as the travel and hospitality industry begins to emerge from the downturn caused by COVID-19.

Johnson joined Kimball International in 2020 as a member of the company’s Executive Team. He is currently Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary for Kimball International and will continue in this role in addition to his new responsibilities as President, Hospitality. Johnson is a proven executive leader who brings deep expertise in business planning and transformation to the role.

“I am thrilled to join our talented team during this exciting time in the travel and hospitality industries,” said Johnson. “We have bold plans to enhance our position as the provider of choice in this industry while uncovering new ways to deliver even higher levels of service to our customers.”

Sigler will depart the company at the end of March 2022. “I will forever cherish my time at Kimball International,” she said. “Throughout my 32 years with the company, I’ve witnessed so many amazing accomplishments, and I am incredibly proud of the work that’s been done. We have persevered, despite the headwinds we’ve met over the last two years, and Kimball Hospitality remains the market leader in the industry. Mark will help this business achieve even greater success.”
