Ørsted is losing the CEO of its most important individual business. Samuel Leupold is stepping down after five years as chief executive officer for Wind Power and being replaced by his second in command, German Martin Neubert, announces Ørsted.
"It's been a true pleasure having Samuel on the top team of Ørsted in the past five years. His relentless drive, sense of duty, strategic thinking, and professionalism have been vital to the development of Ørsted's wind power business from a relatively new and immature business to a fully scaled and industrialised global leader in its field. He'll be missed, but I fully understand and respect his decision and wish him the very best with his future endeavours," says Group CEO Henrik Poulsen.
