Brian Petersen has decided to step down from the role of CEO of Copenhagen
Airports A/S after 3½ years.
"After many years abroad the years in Copenhagen Airports have given me a
fantastic introduction to Danish business life. The strong results in the
airport have opened many doors for me such as the Chairmanship of VisitDenmark
and Bang & Olufsen. We have established a very strong leadership team in CPH
and I feel ready to move on to new assignments outside the airport" said Brian
Petersen. "I would like to thank CPH's Supervisory Board for making it possible
to deliver good results to the benefit of passengers, airlines and other
companies in CPH."
"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Brian for his leadership through
the past 3½ years" said Henrik Gurtler, Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
Copenhagen Airport has emerged as a strong, customer focused operation with
growing passenger numbers, despite the economic environment over that period.
We wish him well for the future."
In the last three years Copenhagen Airports has focused on core business - its
customers, its operations and its infrastructure to come through the challenges
of the financial crisis and deliver improvements in operational performance,
passenger experience and customer service.
"This year Copenhagen Airport has presented the highest growth in traffic
amongst the larger European airports, which among other things is due to the
strategic partnership, which CPH and SAS entered into earlier this year. The
partnership has resulted in a historic growth in the number of transfer
passengers. Furthermore Copenhagen Airports' new low cost pier CPH Go, which
will ensure continued low cost growth, will open October 31st," said Henrik
Copenhagen Airports A/S continues to be supported by a strong executive
management team. The search for a new CEO will commence immediately and CFO Per
Madsen has been registered as an Executive Director at the Danish Commerce And
