At Axel Springer, sound transparent corporate governance is considered to be a crucial element of responsible management and supervision geared to increasing the company’s value on a sustainable basis. It promotes the trust and confidence of our national and international investors, customers, employees, and the public in the management and supervision of the company and is therefore an essential basis for the company’s long-term success.

The Corporate Governance Officer is the Executive Board member in charge of Finance and Personnel. The implementation of and adherence to the recommendations of GCGC are reviewed continually.
