The value creator
Few people have delivered as impressive results throughout their career as Jesper Brandgaard, the longest serving CFO in the history of Novo Nordisk. Last Friday marked the end of an era as he stepped down from his position to pursue a non-executive career after serving the global healthcare giant for 20 years. On the way to his farewell reception at the iconic Novo Nordisk venue, Hvidøre, Jesper stopped by our Copenhagen offices in Ryesgade, to give a speech about career, leadership and value creation. Truly generous, and truly inspirational. We congratulate Jesper on the chapter he closed, wish him all the best for the one he is opening and look forward to seeing him both in professional settings and at venues such as Club Q (we might even try to book Jesper's favorite rock band, The Minds of 99, for a historic third concert in Ryesgade).
