In Danske Bank’s 2023 plan to become a better bank, they have established a new Commercial Leadership Team (CLT) comprising of 12 senior leaders from across the business and the Executive Leadership Team (ELT).

The team consists of:
Mark Wraa-Hansen Head of Personal Customers Denmark,
Stojko Gjurovski Head of Personal Customers Nordic and Country Manager Finland,
Johanna Norberg Head of Business Customers Denmark & Nordic and Country Manager Sweden,
Trond Mellingsæter Country Manager Norway,
Lars Alstrup Head of Products and Solutions Personal and Business Customers Denmark & Nordic,
Paul Martin Gregory Head of Corporate and Institutional Banking,
Claus Harder Head of Fixed Income, Currencies & Transactions,
Atilla Olesen Head of Capital Markets,
Linda Olsen Head of Technology and Services for Personal & Business Customers,
Rob de Ridder Head of Technology and Services for Large Corporates & Institutions
Kim Larsen Head of Group Communications Brand and Marketing,
Christoffer Møllenbach Head of Group Finance.


The new leadership team consists of ten men and two women.

“I am pleased to be able to present our new Commercial Leadership Team, who will drive the commercial and customer agenda across all our markets. I am confident that the team with their strong experience from our business across the Nordic markets will increase our execution power as one bank and achieve faster time to market. This will help us to become an even faster and more competitive bank for our customers and further strengthen our position in the market,” said CEO of Danske Bank Chris Vogelzang.

As previously announced, the new simplified structure with two business units, Personal & Business Customers and Large Corporates and Institutions, will take effect from January 2021, at which time the new CLT will also be established.

Danske Bank is also introducing two men as the two new Chief Customer Officers for Denmark and the Nordic countries to ensure our customers an even stronger voice in our organisation.

“An important part of our transformation is to drive continued improvements in our offering for and relations with our customers across markets. To support this, and to ensure that we have the customer perspective firmly integrated into our decision-making processes across our business, we are introducing two new Chief Customer Officers. I am pleased to announce that Thomas Mitchell and Trond Mellingsæter, both of whom are well known in and outside Danske Bank for their extraordinary commitment to customer service, will be leading this effort,” said Chris Vogelzang.

From January, Thomas Mitchell will move from his current role as Head of Retail Banking in Denmark, while Trond Mellingsæter will take on this role in addition to his current role as Country Manager in Norway.
