« em: 10 de Agosto de 2017, 09:48:03 »
Bom dia,

É com alguma surpresa para a comunidade AFOL e empresarial que a LEGO acaba de apontar como seu novo CEO Niels B. Christiansen, dinamarquês de 51 anos, que se confirmará a 1 de Outubro de 2017. Bali Padda, CEO actual, que tinha sido nomeado internamente no final do ano passado de 2016, deixa as suas funções para passar a ser conselheiro do LEGO Brand Group.



Niels Christiansen foi Presidente & CEO da Danfoss A/S durante 9 anos. A Danfoss é também uma empresa Dinamarquesa com uma gestão familiar e é uma empresa de tecnologia especializada em infraestruturas (automação industrial, compressores e drives), fornecimento alimentar (refrigeração e ar condicionado), eficiência energética e soluções tecnológicas ambientalmente amigáveis. Anteriormente Niels esteve ligado a empresas mundialmente conhecidas como a McKinsey & Co e Hilti e também a GN Netcom.

É ainda Presidente do Conselho de William Demant Holding A/S (empresa líder mundial em aparelhos de audição) e Axcel (empresa de capitais de investimento) e membro do Conselho de Administração da AP Møller-Maersk A/S (empresa ligada à MAERKS, empresa global de transporte e logística, líder em transporte de contentor e portos) e Universidade Técnica da Dinamarca (DTU).

Bem, resta desejar boa sorte ao novo CEO e que se mantenha o bom rumo no The LEGO Group.

The LEGO Group today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Niels B. Christiansen, 51, as CEO of the LEGO Group effective October 1, 2017.

Christiansen was most recently CEO of global industrial technology company, Danfoss, a position he held for nine years until end of June 2017. Christiansen replaces Bali Padda, 61, a long-standing LEGO Group executive, who will assume a special advisory role with LEGO Brand Group.

Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, Executive Chairman of LEGO Brand Group said, ‘Niels is a great leader who delivered outstanding results while CEO of Danfoss. There, he transformed a traditional industrial company into a technology leader. His experience in digitalisation and globalisation, implementing a transformative strategy, and creating an agile, high performing, international team will benefit the LEGO Group. The Board is confident that under Niels, the LEGO Group will continue to flourish and bring play experiences to more children around the world.’ Knudstorp said the transition to a new CEO occurred more rapidly than the Board had anticipated.

"Bali has been part of the LEGO Group family for the past 15 years. He played an integral role in the turnaround of the LEGO Group and during his time as CEO created a solid foundation from which to continue to transform the company. He is a great friend and a wonderful ambassador for the LEGO® brand," said Knudstorp.

Niels B. Christiansen has spent more than 25 years in business leadership.  He began his career at management consultancy, McKinsey and power tools manufacturer, Hilti, and became CEO of GN Netcom aged 33.  He joined Danfoss in 2004 and became CEO in 2008.  During his tenure, the company doubled in size to 39 billion DKK, increased its global footprint and transformed its portfolio in response to changing customer demands. Danfoss is a family-owned, Danish-based global technology company which specializes in infrastructure, food supply, energy efficiency and climate-friendly technology solutions.

Christiansen said: "I am honoured to have the opportunity to join an organisation as iconic and purpose-driven as the LEGO Group. I have loved building with LEGO bricks since I was a child. As I look at the challenges facing this generation of children, the Group’s mission, to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow, is more important and urgent than ever. I am looking forward to working with the Board, the family and the LEGO Group team as we embark on the next phase of global growth."
