Anders Søe-Jensen, new CEO at Bladt Industries
An exceptionally experienced offshore profile will be leading Aalborg-based Bladt Industries into the future – 58-year-old Anders Søe-Jensen, the former head of both Vestas Offshore Wind and most recently GE Offshore Wind.
“Bladt Industries is a fantastic company with enormous potential that I am looking forward to unleashing – in close cooperation with my new colleagues, business partners and not least Bladt’s many Danish and international customers,” says Anders Søe-Jensen.
After almost three years in charge, Klaus Steen Mortensen has decided to step aside as CEO due to a chronic but not life-threatening heart condition.
While in office, Klaus Steen Mortensen worked on preparing Bladt for a future without state subsidies – while simplifying and stabilising the company, which, for some years, had been characterised by major workforce fluctuations and the resulting inefficient work procedures.
“My prime focus has been on creating a far more efficient, predictable and stable company that can compete without subsidies. We have achieved those aims with great success,” says Klaus Steen Mortensen, who will concentrate on working on the Board of Directors and spending more time with his family.
Chairman of the Board Bjarne Moltke Hansen believes that Bladt Industries is strongly equipped for the future.
“Bladt has experienced an exciting period featuring many changes. However, although it has sometimes been an uphill climb the Management, led by Klaus, has succeeded in creating an important international focus while improving efficiency at the company. And Anders Søe-Jensen is clearly the right person to continue that development,” says Chairman of the Board Bjarne Moltke Hansen.
