Coatings manufacturer Hempel (Lyngby, Denmark) announced early last week that Lars Petersson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, will be serving as the company’s new CEO, succeeding Henrik Andersen. His appointment begins July 1.

Petersson joined Hempel as Group COO in March 2015. Richard Sand, Chairman of the Board of Directors, noted that the “natural choice of a Group President and CEO is an existing top leader from Hempel, shows that we have succeeded in establishing the right leadership team for the future.”

“I have experienced how unique this company is," said Petersson.

Andersen will be moving on to a position serving as President and CEO for wind turbine manufacturer Vestas (Aarhus, Denmark). His appointment begins Aug. 1. In the interim, Andersen will continue to work with Hempel to assure a smooth transition.
