Ms. Friede Springer

Friede Springer

Vice Chairwoman, Supervisory Board of Axel Springer SE

Dr. h.c. Friede Springer is the Vice Chairwoman of the Supervisory Board of Axel Springer SE, the largest digital publishing house in Europe. Ms. Springer assumed ownership of Axel Springer SE upon the death of her husband Axel Springer in 1985. Under her leadership, she built Axel Springer SE into an international media empire.

In addition to her role at Axel Springer SE, Ms. Springer chairs two foundations: the Friede Springer Foundation, which supports scientific, medical, artistic, and cultural projects; and the Axel Springer Foundation, which focuses on German-Jewish historical research and German-Israeli relations.

Her many philanthropic endeavors have earned her numerous awards, especially for her efforts to strengthen German-Jewish relations. Ms. Springer is also decorated with the Grand Cross of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, the country’s highest civilian honor.

Black tie optional means that male guests are invited to wear tuxes and women may wear evening gowns or cocktail dresses — what you would wear at a black-tie affair — but you don’t have to. It’s fine for men to wear nice dark suits and for women to wear dresses that aren’t necessarily Oscar-night material.

The Dinner runs until about 10pm.
