With the beginning of the new business year, K.I.T. Group GmbH has rearranged its management board and appointed Merryn Scholz (CMP) as Chief Operating Officer, effective January 2017.
As Chief Operating Officer, Merryn Scholz will be in charge of day-to-day business operations as well as the Human Resources section at K.I.T. Group. She started her career with K.I.T. Group in 2001.

Prior to her appointment as COO, Mrs. Scholz held positions including Project Manager, Head of Department and Division Director, and has also served as Executive Director for K.I.T. Group.
“K.I.T. Group has undergone a structural change as we have evolved into a global PCO with 75 representative offices and more than 120 multi-disciplinary employees within the last few years”, says Willy Kausch, CEO of K.I.T. Group. “This process is still ongoing, and it is our intention and desire to further strengthen our global presence and to develop our services for which K.I.T.
