STARK Group [CVC, STARK Group’s owners] has announced the appointment of Jens Bjørn Andersen as STARK Group Chairman.

Jens Bjørn Andersen joins the Group from DSV where he was CEO. He brings to STARK Group significant expertise and experience.

Søren Vestergaard-Poulsen says:

“I am impressed by what DSV has achieved under Jens Bjørn Andersen’s leadership. Its clear focus on acquisitions and integration of companies is a great inspiration for the development of STARK Group. In addition, he brings with him knowledge of logistics and capital markets, which can be useful now and a few years into the future. I look forward to working with Jens Bjørn.”

STARK Group has been making excellent progress with their company-wide and country transformation and growth plans. For STARK UK, through the Trust in Better strategy, significant changes have been implemented, often behind the scenes, to improve products, systems and processes, with the organisation now set up to focus on winning as a business. Those plans continue with strong active investment and leadership across all levels of the organisation.

CVC’s appointment of Jens Bjørn Andersen is a natural and expected development as STARK Group matures and grow as a company.

With this appointment, business continues as usual at an operational level. John Carter, STARK UK CEO said “There should be nothing distracting us from engaging with our customers, whether small, medium or large – serving them brilliantly, and growing our business as we grow theirs. We partner the UK’s best professional tradespeople and we should be really proud to put our best foot forward for customers every day, day in and day out”.

Formally, Jens Bjørn Andersen will be elected as chairman of STARK Group A/S at the company’s general meeting on 23 April 2024.
