Merck KGaA has a new CEO and a new logo. 'German Merck' has promoted its deputy CEO Stefan Oschmann into the top job, and he will take over from Karl-Ludwig Kley in April 2016. Meanwhile, Merck is eliminating its Merck Serono and Merck Millipore brands, and will be known simply as Merck outside North America. Inside North America, where 'US Merck' owns the brand name, it will continue to use the EMD prefix for its businesses.
