Susanna Schneeberger, the member of the KION GROUP AG Executive Board responsible for Segment Supply Chain Solutions (Dematic), is leaving the company. As Chief Digital Officer, she was also responsible for digital transformation. Due to differing views on corporate strategy, her employment at the KION Group will end on March 31, 2020 by mutual consent with the Supervisory Board.
“We would like to thank Ms. Schneeberger for her dedicated work to develop our Supply Chain Solutions segment and to drive forward the digitalization across the Group. Under her leadership, the SCS business has been stabilized and its performance significantly improved both in terms of growth and profitability. We wish her all the best for the future,” said Michael Macht, chairman of the Supervisory Board of KION GROUP AG.
Gordon Riske, Chief Executive Officer of the KION Group, said: “Susanna Schneeberger has been a driving force behind the Group’s process of digitalization and created a solid foundation and groupwide roadmap for the further internal and external digital transformation of the Group. I am very grateful for that.”
The tasks of the current Supply Chain Solution and Digital Business Transformation role will be integrated into the other Executive Board roles.
