Management and control

In February 2022, Anke Groth, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Labor Relations Director of KION GROUP AG, whose contract would have been coming up for renewal, reached agreement by amicable and mutual consent with the Supervisory Board that her employment at KION GROUP AG would end with effect from March 31, 2022, before the end of her contract, so that she could take on new challenges outside the Group. Until a new CFO has been appointed, the Chief Executive Officer Dr. Richard Robinson Smith – who has been in post since January 1, 2022 – has taken over Ms. Groth’s responsibilities on an interim basis.
