DENMARK - Having spent two months getting to know the Danish Crown Group, Jais Valeur has now taken over as Group CEO from Kjeld Johannesen, who has headed Danish Crown for the past 27 years.
"My overriding ambition is to continue to develop Danish Crown for the benefit of both its owners and its employees. Danish Crown is a truly global business with sales in more than 130 countries and a backbone of merchants with a strong customer focus. Generally speaking, the company has a good standing in the international competition, so I'm very much looking forward to getting started," says Jais Valeur.
Since mid-November last year, Jais Valeur has been visiting many of the group companies. This has given him a first-hand impression of the structure of Danish Crown and, in particular, the challenges and opportunities currently facing the various group companies.
"Danish Crown is a well-managed business. It is staffed by skilled employees who are extremely hard-working, loyal, and who clock in at many different times of the day, so there is no doubt in my mind that Danish Crown has a very strong foundation on which to build," says Jais Valeur.
In the near future, Jais Valeur will be visiting a number of Danish Crown's most important business partners.
