Lars Larsen Group appoints new CFO

Lars Larsen Group, owner of brands including JYSK, Bolia, ILVA, Sofa Company and Actona Group, has announced the appointment of Malene Rhode Carstensen as its new Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

As CFO Malene Rhode Carstensen will be part of the Executive Management Team of Lars Larsen Group and will refer directly to President and CEO, Jesper Lund.

“I am very pleased to have Malene on board with us. She comes with a strong profile with solid professional and managerial experience, and I look forward to her contribution to our continued development, where we create growth and value in society,” Jesper Lund says.

Malene Rhode Carstensen has been with the companies Atea, PwC, and Deloitte for a number of years and most recently held the position of Group CFO in AS3. In addition to her extensive experience as CFO, she holds more than 20 years of experience with management. She looks forward to being a part of the further development of the foundation of Lars Larsen Group, which has been built up over the last few years:

“I am very pleased to be joining the competent team and to help make a difference in the relatively new organisation, which Lars Larsen Group is, though it is built on the foundation of a big, global company with a long history. Furthermore, I look forward to support and further develop our cooperation with the subsidiaries together with the team,” Malene Rhode Carstensen says.

After many years in a publicly listed company, joining a family-owned and value-driven company group was high on the list of priorities for Malene Rhode Carstensen:

“Having followed Lars Larsen Group from the sidelines from the beginning, I have witnessed how the group has grown and managed to attract very competent employees in the process. I believe this to be due to the family ownership, the strong values, and the company’s holistic people-approach. This has also to a great extent been a decisive factor in my own decision to join Lars Larsen Group,” Malene Rhode Carstensen added.

Malene Rhode Carstensen lives in Højbjerg with her husband Frank and their two children. She takes over as CFO from Carsten Iversen who, as Executive Vice President and COO, will continue to be a part of the management team of Lars Larsen Group.
