Today, the Board of Directors appointed Mads Nipper CEO and Group President of Ørsted as of 1 January 2021. Mads Nipper is currently CEO and Group President at Grundfos.

Thomas Thune Andersen, Chairman of the Board of Directors, said:

'On behalf of the Board, I'm very pleased to announce Mads Nipper as Ørsted's next CEO. Anchored in a clear sustainability vision, Mads has led a highly successful transformation of Grundfos over the past six years that has reinforced the company's position in an increasingly competitive market, while also strengthening financial performance. With his deep commitment to sustainability and the green agenda, his strong personal leadership, extensive CEO experience, and his distinguished track record in leading global companies, the Board is confident that Mads Nipper is the right person to lead Ørsted in the next phase of our exciting journey.'

Mads Nipper, Ørsted's next CEO and Group President, said:

'The challenge we face in transforming the world's energy systems from fossil fuels to renewable energy to avoid the catastrophic consequences of climate change is more pressing than ever and requires action in all parts of society. As one of the five largest renewable energy companies in the world and with a clear ambition to be a leader in the global energy transformation, Ørsted is in a unique position to make a difference in the fight against climate change. I'm very excited to join the Ørsted team and to continue Ørsted's successful journey to become one of the future global leaders in renewable energy.'

Mads Nipper will take office on 1 January 2021. Henrik Poulsen will remain in office until 31 December 2020. To support a smooth transition, Henrik Poulsen will serve as special advisor to Mads Nipper until 31 January 2021.
