Marianne K. Knudsen
Before joining Grundfos, Marianne was a management consultant for 10 years, and spent quite some time in Switzerland. In 2008, she was invited into a group called “Everest 2009”, which wanted to draw attention to and celebrate the 60-year anniversary of the human rights declaration by climbing Mount Everest. The group had the ambition to carry the 30 articles of the declaration all the way to the highest point on Earth, to symbolise that human rights are meant for all of us. Marianne didn’t make it to the summit, but the initiative fundraised a lot of money for Amnesty International and spurred much attention to human rights.
