    Himmler was an early party activist and had superior organizational skills. He was also a devious and skilled manipulator who had a long interest in secret police work. Hitler genuinely liked him and called him the True Himmler.

    Rohm as the leader of the SA was a bombastic loud mouth who built the SA up into a force that scared the army. Himmler developed the SS as Hitler's personal bodyguard and then as his private army, providing a counterweight to Rohm and the SA. Himmler was behind the purge of the Night of the Long Knives, and with Rohm gone, the SA could be broken up; and Himmler's SS made nationally powerful.

    Himmler was the Nazi who orchestrated the concentration camp solution. Thereby becoming important to their cause. He saved the Nazis a lot of money, which could then be redirected to the war effort.

    Of course a sensible person would argue that the concentration camps in themselves were a huge financial burden to the Nazis, but it achieved their intended objective and fitted the needs of that lunatic Adolf Hitler. 

    Hence Himmler became valuable, to the so called master race.

    it might be due to the fact that he was Jewish and had political & financial support from the Duke of Bavaria (among others)
