Carlsberg has appointed a new CEO to take over from Nils Smedegaard Andersen from October.

The Danish brewer said today (3 September) that Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen will take up the position, replacing Andersen who will become group CEO of AP Møller-Mærsk.

Carlsberg's chairman, Povl Krogsgaard-Larsen, said: "Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen has extensive international experience in the fast moving consumer goods business, and he is already part of Carlsberg's executive board."

Rasmussen, who was formerly president of the Gillette Group in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, has also previously worked for Duracell, Master Foods and Lagerman.

Krogsgaard-Larsen added: "Furthermore, through his responsibility for Carlsberg's business in Eastern Europe and the joint-venture cooperation in BBH, he has contributed significantly to Carlsberg's positive development. I am convinced that he will know how to create innovation in existing markets and see opportunities in emerging markets."

The news coincides with Carlsberg's CFO, Jørn Jensen, being appointed deputy CEO of the company.

Andersen announced his intentions to move on from the company in June, after holding the post of CEO and president of the group for six years. Anderson will take over from AP Møller-Mærsk's current CEO Jess Soederberg, in December, the company said.
