Robin Lingg, part of the family that started Ringier Axel Springer, is leaving the Group Executive Board of Ringier AG at the end of January 2021. He will be appointed as a member of the Board of Directors instead, a role he will take some time to properly prepare for. 

Lingg has been with Ringier Group since 2013, where he helped support the company as it moved more into the digital marketplace space for real estate, cars, jobs, and horizontals. He was responsible for the Tech & Data sector of the company since 2019. Under his leadership, Lingg helped Ringier invest more in new technologies and platforms to boost the company’s marketplace and media portfolios. 

Michael Ringier, Chairman of the Board of Directors: 

“Operational experience is invaluable for this role as a member of the Board of Directors. I am very grateful to Robin for tackling even the hardest tasks with such dedication and success. I very much look forward to our future collaboration on the Board of Directors.”

On his role swap, Lingg said: 

“The past eight years have been very exciting, valuable and successful. I will miss the daily work with my colleagues around the world, but I am very keen to start the next chapter. And I am proud to be able to pass on the baton internally to an excellent, established team.”

By February of next year, the Group Executive Board of Ringier AG will look something like this:

  • Marc Walder (CEO)
  • Annabella Bassler (CFO)
  • Ladina Heimgartner (Head Global Media and CEO Blick Group)
  • Axel Konjack (Head Global Marketplaces)
  • Alexander Theobald (COO Schweiz and CEO Ringier Axel Springer Switzerland)
