Management and control
On January 1, 2023, Marcus A. Wassenberg joined the Executive Board of KION GROUP AG as the new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Valeria Gargiulo will take up the newly created role of Chief People & Sustainability Officer (CPSO) on May 1, 2023. The Supervisory Board reappointed Andreas Krinninger as an Executive Board member for a further five years. He will continue to head up the Industrial Trucks & Services segment in the EMEA region. His new five-year term begins on January 1, 2024.
Dr. Michael Macht will step down from his roles as member and chairman of the Supervisory Board of KION GROUP AG at the end of the Annual General Meeting on May 17, 2023. This means that the shareholders must elect a new member of the Supervisory Board. On March 23, 2023, KION GROUP AG gave notice of its proposal for the new composition of the Supervisory Board that it will be submitting to the Annual General Meeting taking place on May 17, 2023. The plan is for Dr. Nicolas Peter to be elected as a new member of the Supervisory Board and, after the Annual General Meeting, as the chairman of its Audit Committee. Hans Peter Ring, member of the Supervisory Board since June 2013, is to be elected as chairman of the Supervisory Board after the Annual General Meeting once he has stepped down from his post as chairman of the Audit Committee.
