Telia Denmark chief to quit

Morten Bentzen

Telia Denmark CEO Morten Bentzen is to leave the company at the end of this month.

Thomas Kjærsgaard, who heads Telia Denmark’s enterprise unit, will take on the role in the interim until a new CEO is in place.

Bentzen joined Telia in 2004 and took on the position of CEO at Telia Denmark in 2015

“This was a difficult decision. I value my talented and dedicated colleagues in Telia very much and the telecommunications sector has a dynamic that I will miss. However, the time is right to try new challenges,” he said

“Morten has been a great colleague and contributor to both Telia Denmark’s development and in the LED management team. His winning attitude and professionalism will be missed. I wish him all the best in his future endeavours,” said Emil Nilsson, SVP and head of Telia Lithuania, Estonia and Denmark (LED) and Eurasia.

Telia Denmark comprises an MVNO mobile operation and fixed broadband network that also offers a TV service.
