Management Organization

KERN-LIEBERS is a family company owned by two individual families. The shareholders assume a control and advisory function via a supervisory board, which is formed by shareholders and external persons. 

Assigned to the Management Board are 5 managing directors (one for each business unit) with worldwide P&L-responsibility, as well as the central department leaders of the parent company.

Legal Entities

The Managing Directors of the operational legal entities usually are assigned to the corresponding business units. In the case of companies, which are supporting several business units, the companies report to mandated business unit leaders and, in the case of large companies, to a Managing Director of the Management Board.
