Axel Springer CEO Dopfner leaves Vodafone board

Monday 16 April 2018 | 10:01 CET | News
Vodafone Group said Mathias Dopfner notified Vodafone of his intention to stand down as a non-executive director of the company in order to focus on his role as chief executive and chairman of Axel Springer SE, his role as president of The Federation of German Newspaper Publishers and on other mandates more directly linked with his Axel Springer responsibilities. He will therefore not seek re-election to the board at the company's annual general meeting on 27 July 2018 and will stand down from the board on that date. Döpfner was appointed as a non-executive director on 1 April 2015.
