Jensen, 51, will step down from both the CFO and deputy CEO roles at the end of this month, the brewer confirmed earlier today. His departure follows a change of CEO at Carlsberg in June, when Jørgen Buhl Rasmussen was replaced by Cees ‘t Hart.

“With a new CEO well on board it has been agreed between the supervisory board and Jørn P Jensen that now is the right time for a change for all parties,” said board chairman Flemming Besenbacher. “I would like to thank Jørn P Jensen for his very significant contributions to the transformation of Carlsberg from a small regional brewery to its current international position during his 15 years with the company, and I wish him every success in the future.”

A spokesperson for Carlsberg told just-drinks today that there are no specific details yet on what Jensen plans to do next. He “has agreed to be available for the next months to finish a number of projects and to hand over to a new group CFO”, the company added.

Jensen added: “Now is the right time for change for the company and for me. I will continue to follow Carlsberg with interest.”

Having been with Carlsberg since 2000, Jensen became group CFO in 2004 before also assuming the deputy CEO position in 2007.
