Lund has been a member of the executive board at DSV since 2002, first as group chief financial officer and, since 2021, as group coo.  

Thomas Plenborg, chairman of the board of directors, said: “DSV has been on a fantastic journey under Jens Bjørn Andersen’s leadership since 2008. He has been instrumental in developing DSV into a leading global freight forwarder with excellent financial results and ultimately in creating significant value for DSV’s shareholders.  

“The board of directors believes that now is the right time to execute on the succession plan and announce Jens Lund as the future group ceo. Jens Bjørn has agreed to continue as group ceo until September 2024, supporting a good handover and continuity in the senior leadership team.”
