His combination of “local Danish fabric” and his extensive global investment banking experience is rare. I am convinced he will build on our strong platform and talented team and take our growth story to the next level.We will continue to roll out our Nordic growth strategy to reach our goal of becoming the leading European Banking partner.

The Nordic Region is a strategic region for the bank due to its strong economy, global clients, and its ESG focus combined with a digitally mature population. It is the 10th largest economy globally put together all the GDPs, and tends to grow much faster than many other parts of the world. The clients here whether they are corporate or institutional require both local and global services, something that we can provide as it is a mirror of our Bank. BNP Paribas has hired almost 200 people in the last three years. Today BNP Paribas Nordics has 900 people across the four main countries. In Denmark, we have 350 people across CIB, Personal Finance, Factoring and Car fleet Management to mention a few.
