PostNord has announced the appointment of Annemarie Gardshol as president and group CEO of PostNord. The operator’s board of directors has also appointed Peter Kjaer Jensen as deputy CEO. Both will take up their new duties on November 1, 2019.
“With these appointments we establish a management paring with in-depth knowledge of the business and complementary capacities, which can continue leading the transformation work at a fast pace. Annemarie Gardshol and Peter Kjaer Jensen are both fully familiar with the challenges facing PostNord, and both have played an active role in the transition work in recent years,” said chairman of the board of directors, Christian Jansson.
Gardshol has been in the position of acting president and group CEO since April 2019, when PostNord announced that the business would be reorganized. She joined PostNord in 2012 and has held a number of senior executive positions in the company, including CEO of PostNord Strålfors Group and chief strategy officer. Since February 2018, she has been CEO of PostNord Sweden.
Jensen joined the group in 2014 and has been in charge of the Danish side of the business since June 2016, leading a major transformation of letter operations at PostNord Denmark.
Gardshol and Jensen will continue in their management roles with overall responsibility for PostNord Sweden and PostNord Denmark, respectively.
