Dansk Eternit Holding changes Management

After 12 years in the Dansk Eternit Holding Group (DEH), CEO Lars Østergaard, 38, has informed the Board of Directors that he wishes to seek new challenges outside the FLS Group.

Lars Østergaard became Chief Executive Officer of DEH in August 2000 after having been in charge of DEH's activities in the Czech Republic. Indeed, the Czech factories together with DEH's plant in Poland are currently in the process of accommodating the transfer of fibre cement production from Denmark. Lars Østergaard, who is to take up a similar position outside the FLS Group, has thus made a significant contribution to DEH during a challenging period.

Ulrik Kolding Hartvig, 35, has been appointed new CEO of the Dansk Eternit Holding Group. Ulrik Kolding Hartvig, who holds an MSc degree in engineering and a Graduate Diploma in Business Administration, will take up his new position on 15 May 2004, and Lars Østergaard will continue to assist on an interim basis until the summer to facilitate the transition.

Ulrik Kolding Hartvig was formerly CEO of Pedershaab A/S and has international experience from general management positions with companies like DISA (owned by the A.P. Moller - Maersk Group), Superfos Packaging (Poland) and Superfos Construction.

As from 15 May 2004, DEH's Management will therefore consist of Ulrik Kolding Hartvig, CEO, and Karl Worre Jørgensen, Executive Vice President.
