Joergen Erichsen, Executive Vice President of the Natural Colours Division of Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, will leave the position effective 2 February 2018. Joergen Erichsen has been with the company since July 2015.
Cees de Jong, CEO, says: “Since Joergen started at Chr. Hansen two and a half years ago, the Natural Colours Division has delivered strong financial results and has been transformed into an independent division with a fully integrated value chain. However, during the last year it has become evident that it has not been possible to bridge different views on leadership style, and it has therefore not been possible to secure the strong cultural fit which is a vital part of Chr. Hansen’s success. We have therefore mutually agreed that Joergen will leave Chr. Hansen. I would like to thank him for his efforts and wish him all the best in his future career.”
The Natural Colors Division is strongly positioned in the attractive market for natural solutions to the food industry. A process has been initiated to find a replacement to ensure that Chr. Hansen continues to capture the growth potential in this market.
