Danish telco TDC has named Pernille Erenbjerg as its new CEO, taking over from existing president and CEO Carsten Dilling.

Erenbjerg was previously deputy CEO, having been promoted from chief financial officer in January. She has worked for TDC since 2003.

Dilling, who has helmed the telco for the last three years and is leaving by mutual agreement with the board, according to the company, will continue to act as an advisor to Erenbjerg for the next few months.

Erenbjerg will combine the CEO role with her existing chief financial officer responsibilities for the time being.

TDC chairman Vagn Sørensen said that Dilling had done “an excellent and decisive job” in developing and streamlining the company, including achieving a turnaround in customer satisfaction.

He said that Erenbjerg had “the right profile” and “deep knowledge of the entire business” to lead TDC.

Erenbjerg said that it is “no secret” that TDC’s domestic business is “under significant pressure” but welcomed the challenge.
