Jens Kristensen has been appointed to the role. In addition, he will assume the responsibility of the COO position. His most recent job was CEO of Jupiter Bach, a global supplier to the wind turbine industry. Prior to that, he held senior operating positions with GN Resound, a leader within the field of hearing aids.
Explaining the appointment, chairman of Frontmatec Arne Vraalsen said “in order to manage the increased complexity and professionalize the expanding operations, it has been decided to strengthen the Frontmatec leadership team with a person who has a strong operations background and who has successfully managed businesses globally”.
“The solution of appointing a CEO with strong operations skills has been proposed by previous CEO, Henrik Andersen himself. Henrik will continue in his role as CCO (chief commercial officer), where he has done a fantastic job in terms of creating growth, building markets and securing technology.
“I am very thankful that Henrik will now put all his energy behind developing an even stronger customer offering and accelerating growth further in our existing and new markets. I believe that both our customers and Frontmatec will benefit greatly from this.”
