Kim Saaby Hansen has now been appointed as Topsoe’s executive vice president of Power-to-X after having served as the unit’s interim EVP since May, before which he held the role of group chief operations officer.

Andreas Bruun Jørgensen gets the firm role as COO after having overseen the responsibility on a temporary basis as of late, Topsoe confirms in a statement.

“We are dedicated to take lead on the energy transition, and our Power-to-X business is an important driver in doing so. I am very pleased that Kim has accepted the position as EVP. He has already done an outstanding job in shaping the Power-to-X organization, and he holds the right mindset to drive our global leadership position and to unleash the enormous potential in this field,” writes Topsoe Chief Executive Roeland Baan in the media release:

“It is also a pleasure to welcome Andreas to our Senior Leadership Team. He has done a tremendous job in leading our Global Supply organization and safeguard, that we are able to deliver on all fronts to our customers even with the current distressed environment in the global markets.”

This announcement follows on the heels of Topsoe’s half-year report published earlier Thursday, showing net profit of DKK 277m, down by 34% year-over-year.
