“I always want to do better tomorrow”
ANNUAL REPORT ARTICLE
Henrik was born in 1949. He got a BSc in Management Accounting at Copenhagen Business School and went on to study Political Science at university, but never got around to finishing his master’s thesis. Later on, Henrik stayed alert to thought leadership by visiting institutions such as Stanford University. Henrik got a job at FIH Erhvervsbank in the 70s, and became the company CEO in 1988. Ten years later, he joined Alfred Berg as CEO where he served until he was hired as CEO of the leading Danish pension company, PFA, in 2001. Since the age of 35, Henrik has been an active board member serving on more than 70 boards through his career. In 2014, he left PFA, and since then, he has devoted his time entirely to board work. He is the chairman of the board at IC Group and Carlsberg Byen, and in addition, he is a member of several boards, among them the board at FIH Erhvervsbank. An often-overlooked point on his resume is that he was once the Danish Greco-Roman wrestling champion.
