Büchi will remain Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ringier Axel Springer Media AG, the joint venture between Ringier and Axel Springer in Central and Eastern Europe.
He also serves on the management board of FIPP.
“Axel Springer and Ralph Büchi are bound by 18 years of close, trusting and thoroughly successful collaboration,” said Dr. Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer SE, said in a press release.
“As Publishing Manager he always remained a journalist, and as an employed manager he was always an entrepreneur as well. In his various functions and positions at Axel Springer he managed to combine these three skills in an outstanding way.
"He made it possible for us to enter the Swiss market and with the 2007 purchase of Jean Frey Verlag made Axel Springer a relevant player there. This became the foundation for the current wide-reaching cooperation with the Ringier Group in Switzerland and in Eastern Europe.
"Ralph Büchi is Swiss at heart but also international through and through. A large part of the credit for the rapid and successful internationalization of Axel Springer SE in recent years goes to Ralph Büchi. Therefore we are glad that we will continue to work closely with him in his new position."
