Danfoss has welcomed Kim Fausing as its new president and CEO.
Fausing, who for the past nine years has served as Danfoss’ chief operating officer, steps into the role after the planned departure of Niels B. Christiansen, with whom he had worked closely to create financial results, a performing organization, and growth, and put a digital transformation on track.
“I have felt at home in Danfoss from day one, and I look forward to continuing the journey as CEO. In the management team, we have defined the strategy and future direction for Danfoss, and we will continue to follow the plans we’ve made. We have a good momentum, and we make investments in growth and digital transformation in order to stay ahead of competition and serve our customers in the best possible way. I am looking forward to the new tasks, which I will pursue with great respect. And I look forward to continuing the development of Danfoss together with the Danfoss team and the Board of Directors,” says Fausing.
Chairman of the Board, Jørgen M. Clausen, says, “I am pleased that we have such a competent successor in Kim Fausing, who for the past nine years has also played a part in driving the positive development. Danfoss can continue the positive development, with good growth, investing in digitization and reaping improvements from the engine room.”.
Earlier this year, Danfoss announced that Niels B. Christiansen had decided to leave the company after nine years as CEO, and Kim Fausing was appointed CEO.
