With effect from January 1, 2017 Karsten Lundgaard joins Skamol A/S as new CEO. He substitutes Jesper Kirkeby Hansen, who has been relieved of duty at his own request to begin an appointment outside the company.
Karsten Lundgaard has a solid international background from Senior Executive employments within different industries such as Building & Construction, Mining & Metals, and his latest employment was as CEO with Jeld Wen NE.
"Skamol holds a leading position within development, production and sales of products and solutions for high temperature industries. With the increasing focus on future growth in sales of products for the building industry, we have in Karsten Lundgaard found the right person to be at the head of Skamol due to his long experiences from the building industry. We look forward to welcoming Karsten to Skamol, and at the same time we would like to thank Jesper Kirkeby Hansen for the good and long-standing cooperation with him." says Bo Rygaard, Chairman of the Board.
"Skamol is on its way on a new journey. It is more and more becoming a company within building work, and to a smaller extent the growth will be within the heavy industries as aluminium, steel and wood stoves. Even though it is important to hold on to the present values, and the markets where we are strong, it is also important that as company we look at the world in a different light. Therefore, I think it is right for Skamol to have a new CEO." says Jesper Kirkeby Hansen.
I look very much forward to start as CEO with Skamol. It is an interesting company, which I have been following from a distance, and I see many perspectives for growth in future, among others within the areas, where I have my background." says Karsten Lundgaard.
Skamol employs approximately 380 persons, and in the latest financial year the turnover reached DKK 337 mil.
