Last month, global coating supplier Hempel A/S announced via emailed press release that it had appointed Pernille Fritz Vilhelmsen as Executive Vice President & Chief People & Culture Officer and member of the Executive Management Board.

“I am very excited to continue the work that Peter started and proud that Lars and the board have invited me to be part of driving our ambitious growth journey,” said Vilhelmsen.

“We have a strong foundation for People & Culture to build on and I look forward to continuing and accelerating our contribution, enabling our leaders and employees to succeed in doubling Hempel. Three and a half years ago, Hempel became my professional family, welcoming me with open arms. I could not be happier to continue working with this great company and wonderful colleagues in my new capacity.”

Vilhelmsen has been Talent Management Director at Hempel since she joined from Maersk Line in 2017, where the company notes she has delivered remarkable results in just a few years.

Lars Petersson, Group President and CEO of Hempel, said “Pernille is professional, personable, grounded and has a special way of combining high personal integrity with high interest in others. She has been very successful in her current role and comes with previous solid senior experience from both business and people roles in an international context. I have no doubt she will be a great contributor as we start to deploy our new strategy. I am especially satisfied that we were able to find an internal talent who is ready to enter the Executive Management Board.”
