Danske fails to publish prospective CEO's private directorships

In addition to his position in Danske Bank's management team, the scandal-hit bank's prospective CEO Jacob Aarup-Andersen held ­ until recently ­ directorships in two private limited companies, with approval from the board of directors. According to the Danish Financial Business Act, such information must be published annually. However, according to Danske's press officer, Danske has not yet published the prospective CEO's private directorships in 2018 due to an "internal error".
