Woldbye will begin his new role on May 1 2011

Copenhagen Airports has appointed Thomas Woldbye as its new CEO effective May 1 2011. Woldbye replaces Brian Peterson who stepped down last October.
Woldbye is currently serving as CEO for Norfolkline Group, a company he has been with since joining as a trainee 27 years ago and where he has gained management experience in commercial and operational areas.

Copenhagen Airports board chairman Henrik Gürtler said: "We selected Thomas not least on account of his extensive management experience from an international company. He has headed numerous strategic change and transformation projects and has extensive infrastructure and development experience. This will prove valuable in the challenges Copenhagen Airports will be facing in the years ahead in its capacity as a key player in developing Denmark's international accessibility and competitiveness."

Woldbye, who has a degree in finance and completed business studies in London and Switzerland, said: "I look forward to taking up my new position. All Danes, including myself, depend on and are proud of Copenhagen airport and I will do my best to ensure that this pride will live on. I look forward to drawing on my experience from Norfolkline and [its former owner] A.P. Moller Maersk where I have worked closely with logistics operations and relations with passengers and business partners."
