Management Board

We believe that proximity to our customers is key. This means that we rely on the expertise of all our global employees under the leadership of the local managing directors at our 17 national companies worldwide. To provide a uniform framework for corporate governance, KNF set up the Group Board. This body supports the managing directors around the world in implementing the KNF customer promise, continuously optimising our service and strengthening our position as an innovation leader.
