As of August 1st Lina Gandløse Hansen will be leaving her post as Commercial Counselor at the Embassy of Denmark, and thus also her position as Executive Secretary at the American Danish Business Council. She will take over the position as General Consul in Munich, Germany.
”The last three years as Executive Secretary of ADBC have been exciting and I am very happy with what we have achieved. We have built an organization and a platform with focus on trade promotion, networking and cooperation between Danish and American companies, allowing our members to gain the most from each other’s competences” says Lina Gandløse Hansen.
Lina leaves the post to Jess Møller Knudsen, who will take over Lina’s position at the Embassy. Jess is an international executive with over 10 years of senior management experience in strategic business development, sales and marketing. He has a broad commercial background, with particular experience within architecture/green build, healthcare and ICT. Currently Jess is the Consul-General and Trade Commissioner at The Royal Danish Consulate General in Toronto where he is responsible for developing new business opportunities for Danish companies in Canada.
”I am excited to take over for Lina at ADBC. It is an important organization and I look forward to getting to know ADBC and the Companies better, so we can continue promoting trade between Denmark and the US” Jess said on the takeover.
We at ADBC welcome Jess and look forward to working with him.
