Schwarz Group Management succession
Chrzanowski was a member of the Lidl Executive Board from 2008 to 2014 before taking over the management of Schwarz Zentrale Dienste. Melanie Köhler, Chrzanowski's deputy to date, will take over as Chairman of the Management Board of Schwarz Dienstleistungen. In recent years, group-wide service structures have been established in the company.
At the head of Lidl and Kaufland, the two CEOs, who have so far only been acting provisionally, are confirmed in their positions. Ignacio Paternò for Lidl and Frank Schumann for Kaufland are now CEOs of the divisions. At Kaufland, Stephanie Griesbaum is also promoted to the position of Deputy Chairwoman of the Management Board.
