April 9, 2024 (press release) –

After four years in the position, Thomas Ahle has chosen to swap his Group CFO role at Danish Crown for a similar one at STARK Group. He will leave Danish Crown at the end of August 2024.

Thomas Ahle joined Danish Crown in 2020 from the company Refresco in the Netherlands and has driven corporate strategy and led several corporate programs that together are intended to strengthen the group's financial and ESG reporting as well as compliance. During his period, the group has adopted a new IT strategy, strengthened its procurement activities, and enhanced performance management across the group.

- We are sorry to say goodbye to Thomas Ahle, who has been a well-liked and competent Group CFO, delivering strong performance in his role as the top leader in both the financial and non-financial areas. He is a skilled mediator and has led us well on the way towards a changed world with many new reporting requirements, says Jais Valeur, Group CEO in Danish Crown.

For Thomas Ahle, parting with Danish Crown is not easy.

- I have been very pleased with my time in Danish Crown, and it is hard to say goodbye to the many competent employees. However, I have received a unique opportunity in STARK Group, a private equity-owned company that is on a tremendous growth journey with acquisitions and integration, and a potential IPO lies ahead. It is extremely exciting, both professionally and in terms of leadership, so I could not say no to this challenge, says Thomas Ahle.

The recruitment of a new Group CFO has begun, and a successor is expected to be found during the summer.
