Lars Ellehave-Andersen was set to go to Norway on May 1st to take on a job as CEO of Danica Pensjon Norway. Currently he is Chief Commercial Officer at Danica Pension. However Lars Ellehave-Andersen can spend the weekend unpacking his moving boxes because Danske Bank now informs that Lars Ellehave-Andersen is not going to move to Norway after all. He is taking over as Head of Private Wealth Management Denmark from Lone Bille Schjødt who has chosen to resign completely from the bank.

"I am very much looking forward to being head of Private Wealth Management Denmark and to being a part of Danske Banks new strategy aiming to be closer to the customer. Being close to the customer is very much what I am all about," Lars Ellehave says in a written statement.

Two weeks ago on April 12th it was announced that Danske Banks global head of Private Wealth Management, Marlene Nørgaard, was taking her leave from the bank after seven years. Her succesor and hence Lars Ellehave-Andersens new boss is Stojko Gjurovski, former head of Personal Banking Sweden.

Stojko Gjurovski says: "Lars is the epitome of being close to the customers. He has proven that over the last 30 years and lately with good results and strong growth in Danica Pension. On top of that comes that he has an extremely strong network in Denmark so all in all I am very please that Lars has accepted to head the Private Wealth area in Denmark."

New Head of Wealth Management after Tonny Thierry Andersen is former CFO from Danske Bank Jacob Aarup-Andersen.
