DENMARK: Carlsberg appoints Søderberg deputy chairman

By | 16 March 2009

Danish brewer Carlsberg's board of directors has appointed its next deputy chairman.

Jess Søderberg will take up his position with immediate effect, following last week's Annual General Meeting.

Formerly an executive at Scandinavian transport and shipping company A.P.Moller-Maersk, Søderberg replaces Jens Bigum, 70, who is leaving the board due to the age rule.

Earlier this month, Carlsberg said it was searching for a replacement for Mikael Aro, its senior vice president for Northern Europe, who is to leave the brewer this summer.

Aro, who has been with Carlsberg for 11 years, will leave to become CEO of Finland's VR Group, a rail and road transport services provider.
