22-02-17 10:00 | Press release

Frank Vang-Jensen (49) will be the new Head of Personal Banking and Country Senior Executive for Nordea in Denmark. Frank Vang-Jensen will be taking over from Peter Lybecker (63), who will hand over his assignments to Frank Vang-Jensen and retire later in 2017. Torben Laustsen (57) will stay as Head of Personal Banking until Frank Vang-Jensen begins on 16 May.

- Nordea is carrying out a massive transformation, with a strong focus on customer satisfaction, a desire to be best in class in compliance and with a strong ethics- and value-based culture. In this transformation I must say, I am really delighted to welcome Frank Vang-Jensen. He has a strong and proven track record of business and customer satisfaction going hand in hand. I am convinced that with his background Frank Vang-Jensen is the right person to take our business forward and put customers at the centre in Nordea’s culture, says Group CEO Casper von Koskull.

As Country Senior Executive, Frank Vang-Jensen will be the unifying figure representing Nordea in Denmark. He has worked 18 years at Handelsbanken, most recently as President and CEO.


- I am thrilled to be invited to participate in the transformation Nordea is going through. I see Nordea as very competent, financially robust and with a really strong desire to develop and improve, not least when it comes to having customers in focus, says Frank Vang-Jensen.

Frank Vang-Jensen is 49, married with two children and has recently moved back to Copenhagen. He will step into the position as Head of Personal Banking and Country Senior Executive on 16 May 2017.
