DENMARK: Carlsberg CEO leaves for transport company
Carlsberg's CEO plans to leave the company and take on a new role as the head of the Danish transport company, AP Moller Maersk.
The company said today (22 June), that Nils Smedegaard Andersen will take over from the company's current chief executive, Jess Soederberg, in December.
Carlsberg has said it is in the process of finding a replacement to Smedegaard Andersen, who has held the post of chief executive and president of the group for six years.
The Danish company recently lost two other CEOs this month. Jan Bodd, CEO of Carlsberg's Norwegian arm, Ringnes, and Stig Sunde, of Carlsberg Sweden, unveiled plans to step down from their respective positions, with a view to creating their own company.
Bodd and Sunde will leave their positions at the end of August. When contacted by just-drinks, Bodd declined to give details of the new company, but confirmed that he and Sunde were leaving the drinks industry.
