Vindfeldt steps down from the executive board of Chr. Hansen
Chr Hansen announced that after more than 25 years with Chr. Hansen and 11 years in Executive Management, Knud Vindfeldt will step down from its executive board.
Vindfeldt joined Chr. Hansen in 1991 and was appointed member of the Executive Board of Chr. Hansen Holding A/S and head of the Cultures & Enzymes Division in 2005, and was further appointed COO and Deputy CEO in 2016.
Cees de Jong, CEO of Chr. Hansen, said: “Knud has been one of the key drivers behind the success of Chr. Hansen in the dairy market, and he has relentlessly pushed for continued improvements in our strategic, operational and financial performance. The results delivered by the Food Cultures & Enzymes Division (FC&E) speak for themselves; since 2005, both revenue and EBIT margin have more than doubled."
Following this change, the Executive Board will consist of CEO Cees de Jong and CFO Søren Westh Lonning. In addition, and as previously announced, Thomas Schäfer will join Chr. Hansen as CSO and member of the Executive Board in due course.
