Henning Christensen resigns as CEO of PostNord Denmark. He has declined discussions regarding taking on other tasks in the group. Henning Christensen will be succeeded by Peter Kjaer Jensen, currently Head of business area Logistics at PostNord.
President and Group CEO Håkan Ericsson comments:
- Henning Christensen has done a very good job in getting political acceptance of the necessary regulatory changes now taking place. He has also led the challenging and comprehensive change of our Danish operations with great commitment.
- PostNord Denmark now needs both a continued focus on a quick cost adjustment to the lower mail volumes and to expand the logistics operations which requires a different leadership profile. Peter Kjaer Jensen has a strong leadership profile to manage the continuing adjustment process, build up the company's logistics operations and quickly get the company back to an acceptable profitability.
Peter Kjaer Jensen takes over immediately. Henning Christensen is leaving the Group at the end of June.
A new head of the business area for PostNord's logistics operations will be recruited shortly. Peter Kjaer Jensen will remain in his position until further notice.
