Carlsberg has announced the departure of its chief financial officer (CFO), Heine Dalsgaard, after six years in the position.
In a statement, Carlsberg said that Dalsgaard was resigning from the post to take up the role of CFO at a private equity-backed company in a different industry.
Carlsberg’s CEO, Cees ’t Hart, said: “I have highly valued the partnership with Heine since he joined Carlsberg in 2016. He has been instrumental in driving the improvements that Carlsberg has delivered. While we of course regret Heine’s decision, we also respect his wish to pursue new opportunities outside Carlsberg. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
Dalsgaard added: “Carlsberg is a fantastic company, and it has been a true privilege to be part of the team during the past six years. Together, we have created a much stronger Carlsberg with a clear strategy, strong results and continued significant value-enhancing opportunities.”
Dalsgaard will continue in his role until 31 December 2022. Meanwhile, Carlsberg said it will start the search for a new CFO “in due course”.
