IFB CEO leaves after merger with Finance Denmark

After two years in office, the CEO of The Danish Investment Association (IFB), Anders Klinkby, is leaving his position in November. He has made his decision after IFB merged with Finance Denmark this past spring. 

"There have been major changes when I look at my own job description, which means that some things will be less important to the job after the restructuring," says Klinkby to AMWatch. The merger meant that Klinkby went from the title of CEO of IFB to executive director of investment and savings at Finance Denmark. As such, he will no longer be part of the board of directors as he was at IFB.
