Birgit Behrendt and Xu Ping have been appointed to succeed Silke Scheiber and Dr Martin Hintze on the KION Group supervisory board. Behrendt was most recently vice president, global programs and purchasing operations at Ford Motor Company in the US. She has served at Ford since 1978 and has detailed knowledge of procurement structures gained through various senior international positions at Ford. She holds a degree from the Administration and Business Academy in Cologne, Germany.

Xu was a partner at the law firm King & Wood Mallesons, where she was head of the corporate mergers and acquisitions practice group. She has more than 20 years' international advisory experience, particularly in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and corporate restructuring. She studied law at Stanford Law School (USA) and the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China.

Scheiber and Hintze stepped down from the board from 31 December 2014, following the reduction in the stake held by Superlift Holding Sàrl in KION Group AG. The change means that the number of seats held by women on the KION's 16-strong supervisory board has now risen from two to three.
