Thomas Olander, General Manager, Denmark and UK, has decided to leave HKScan to pursue other career opportunities outside the Group.

Olander has served the Group during several years and has made a significant contribution to the evolution of the HKScan business both in Denmark and in Sweden.

“I am sure that our entire team will join me in thanking Thomas for his years at our service and the important role he has played in our organisation. We wish him the very best in his future endeavours,” says Göran Holm, EVP, Consumer Business in Scandinavia.

Olander will temporarily be replaced by Thomas Perkiö in Denmark, VP Business Development for Scandinavia, until a new General Manager for Denmark is recruited. The recruitment process will begin immediately and an announcement regarding Olander’s successor will be made in due course. Thomas Perkiö has earlier experience from leading roles in the Danish poultry business and as Managing Director for the HKScan UK operations.
