She is a member of The Committee of 200, an invitation-only organization of the world’s most successful women business leaders.

Zongrone will be part of the KA executive committee and an executive member of the KA Board of Directors, reporting to Gerbershagen.

The Paper & Output Systems and Film Capture team under Olbrich will continue its mission to provide professional photographers, photographic labs, imaging specialty and wholesale labs with superior tools and services including trusted, industry leading output media.
