New face at Scandlines

As of 1 June 2024, Birgit Nørgaard will take over as chair of the Scandlines Supervisory Board from Vagn Sørensen, who has decided to step down after having been chair since the beginning of 2020.


Birgit Nørgaard has extensive experience as a Non-Executive Director in companies within logistics, engineering, contracting, infrastructure, manufacturing and energy. She is currently the Non-Executive Director of Associated British Ports, NCC International AB, WSP Global Inc., Associated Danish Ports among others.

In addition, she has been CEO of the consulting engineering company Carl Bro A/S and COO of Grontmij NV, both of which are now part of the Sweco Group.

“I look forward to working with Scandlines, its management and employees. I appreciate the company’s green agenda, its strong customer focus and important role in securing seamless supply chains and quality travel for customers. Together with the management team, the goal will be to make sure that Scandlines is fit and well prepared for the coming competition with the Fehmarn Belt fixed link,” says Birgit Nørgaard.

Scandlines’ interim CEO Michael Guldmann Petersen adds: ”I am happy to welcome Birgit Nørgaard on board. Birgit has an impressive career and we look forward to benefitting from her experience. It will be invaluable as we continue to work towards our goal of emission-free operations by 2040, to provide our customers with an extraordinary experience and modernise our fleet.”

Birgit Nørgaard takes over the chair from Vagn Sørensen, who has been chair of the Scandlines Supervisory Board since the beginning of 2020. Vagn Sørensen says:

“I have enjoyed my journey with Scandlines, which has offered many different tasks – closed borders during COVID-19 and investment in a new emission-free ferry to the Fehmarn Belt, to name but a few. Now is the right time to pass on the baton, and I am happy to hand over the chair to an experienced leader who has handled many issues during her career.”
