Carsten Krogsgaard Thomsen will step down as CFO after 11 years with DONG Energy. His successor will be Marianne Wiinholt, who comes from the position of Senior Vice President of DONG Energy’s Customers & Markets division.

“Marianne Wiinholt is the ideal candidate for the job and I am delighted that we have a fully competent successor within DONG Energy who is ready to take over.”
