TDC names former Bang & Olufsen chief as new CEO

Henrik Clausen

Danish telco and cable operator TDC has named Henrik Clausen as its new CEO.

Clausen, who was most recently CEO of Bang & Olufsen, has previously served as director of strategy at Telenor, CEO of Malaysia’s DiGi and CEO of Telenor Denmark.

He replaces Mike Parton, who has served as interim CEO of the Danish telco since October last year following the departure of Alison Kirkby. Parton will quit his post on February 17 but will remain as vice-chairman of the TDC board.

Kirkby is set to take over as CEO of Nordic telco Telia this month, replacing acting CEO Christian Luiga.

TDC last year reorganised into two units – TDC Net and Nuuday – covering infrastructure and services respectively.

“Together with the management and the thousands of dedicated employees across TDC, Nuuday and TDC NET, I look forward to contributing to the historic transformation that will ensure that Denmark maintains its position as a digital pioneer. Together, we will fulfill our long-term promise to Denmark by increasing investment in digital infrastructure in TDC NET and further strengthening Nuuday’s offerings in digital entertainment and service solutions for both private and corporate customers,” said Clausen.

“We are very pleased to welcome Henrik Clausen to TDC. We have full confidence that he is the right person to ensure that we continue our progress towards our strategic ambition to create two leading and independent digital businesses that will ensure that Denmark remains a digital pioneer. On behalf of the board of directors, I would also like to thank Mike Parton for assuming the role of interim CEO in recent months,” said Bert Nordberg, chairman of TDC.
