Strategy & Transformation is also joining the EGM, headed up by Vice President, René Overgaard Jensen.

“A year into our Double Impact strategy and we’ve made great progress,” continues CEO, Lars Petersson. “We’re on track, but from hereon in, the mountain gets steeper and we have changed the way we work to enable us to grow at a faster rate, and ready ourselves for scaling up the business with future acquisitions.”
