Treasurer, Alix von Studnitz Nell

Alix, a mother of four young children, has a master’s degree in International Marketing and holds the position of managing director at GFDF. Born in Helsinki to an American mother and a German father, she is familiar with living in foreign countries. She lived in Scotland (Glasgow and Edinburgh), London and Moscow during her studies and later in her professional life. She is married to a German diplomat and accompanied him on his postings in Moscow, Brussels, Tashkent and New York.

Alix constantly had to reorient herself because of the relocations to various countries. Understanding the challenges of living in a foreign place, she helped the newcomers to settle in throughout the time of her husband’s postings. As an enthusiastic Berliner of choice, she finds it important to help others to find their “feeling at home” in Berlin.
