DONG’s CEO quits

Anders Eldrup has left DONG

News in English

Anders Eldrup has left his post as CEO of DONG Energy with immediate effect, the company says in a news release.

“Our strategy and investment programme is sustainable so our course will remain unchanged. We are continuing our ambitious goal of doubling revenues in 2015 compared to 2009,” says Board Chairman Fritz Schur.

The move comes a week after news that DONG – which made a profit of DKK2.9bn in 2011 – is to be investigated by the national auditors.

Auditor Chairman Peder Larsen (SocPpl) said last week that the investigation was not part of a routine scrutiny, adding that the national auditors had received information from sources with an ‘insight into what is really going on’.

“So it is important for us to find out whether DONG management’s decisions are sensible or whether there is too much extravagance,” Peder Larsen told Jyllands-Posten.

At the time, Anders Eldrup said the investigation was a normal event and that he looked forward to proposals for improvements from the national auditors.

DONG Energy Chief Financial Officer Carsten Krogsgaard Thomsen has been appointed interim CEO until a new chief executive officer has been found.

    Kongressen i Washington dagen før Donald Trumps indsættelse som præsident
    Jakob Nielsen skriver fra Washington, D.C.­


    Der er en anspændt stemning i Washington mindre end et døgn før indsættelsen.

    Trumps tilhængere indtog torsdag byen og flokkedes om Kongressen, hvor de fleste skulle hente deres billetter til indsættelsen. Flere købte merchandise og tog selfies foran den bygning, hvor den næste præsident sættes ind.

    På Pennsylvania Avenue skændes to kvinder - den ene har en T-shirt, hvor der står, at hun overlevede 8 år med et Obama. Den anden har et skilt der siger tak til Obama - »vi savner dig allerede«. Kun 4 procent af vælgerne i Washington, D.C., stemte på Trump.
