A.P. Moller Holding has today requested that the Board of Danske Bank calls for an extraordinary general assembly where A.P. Moller Holding nominates Karsten Dybvad as Director of the Board – and encourages the Board to elect Karsten Dybvad as the new Chairman of the Board. DI’s Chairman, Lars Peter Søbye, congratulates Karsten Dybvad on the nomination.

- On behalf of DI I am very proud that Karsten Dybvad is nominated for one of the most important directorships in Denmark. Considering his competencies, high integrity and commitment to society I am confident that he is a very good choice. On behalf of DI I am pleased to congratulate Karsten Dybvad with the nomination, says Lars-Peter Søbye.

- I consider the nomination to be a strong recognition of the course that we have set for DI with Karsten Dybvad as our CEO - where businesses are and should be a trustworthy, committed and central part of Danish society, says Lars-Peter Søbye.

He informs that an appointment of Karsten Dybvad as chairman of Danske Bank will mean that DI will need a new CEO.

- In the long run it is not possible to carry out two such demanding jobs at the same time. Therefore, it is obvious that DI will need a new CEO who can take over the responsibility for further developing DI as the largest and most significant organization for businesses in Denmark, says Lars-Peter Søbye.

- DI has achieved an impressive increase in the number of memberships and stands out as a vital and important voice in the public political debate on behalf of Danish companies, says Lars-Peter Søbye.

Karsten Dybvad will continue as CEO in DI until further notice in order to secure a smooth transition for all parties involved, says Lars-Peter Søbye.
