Giuseppe Vita, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Axel Springer SE: „Iris Knobloch has long-standing and extensive knowledge of the international media industry. Alexander Karp is one of the digital economy’s most successful and important visionaries. With their experiences, both would make a valuable contribution to the further digitization and internationalization of Axel Springer SE. We thank Rudolf Knepper very much for stepping down from his mandate in order to make room for Alexander Karp. Already today, our particular thanks go to both leaving board members, Bill Ford and Rudolf Knepper. They have enriched the company’s transformation through smart impulses.“
