Ole Krogh Petersen is PFA’s new Group CEO

PFA’s Board of Directors has appointed Ole Krogh Petersen, 53, new Group CEO at PFA. He comes from a position as CEO of Danica Pension and will begin his new job with PFA on 1 December 2022.

As Group CEO, Ole Krogh Petersen will be entrusted with continuing PFA’s solid growth and development. Chairman of the Board in PFA, Peder Hasslev, calls the appointment of Ole Krogh Petersen a good match where strong competences, relevant experience as well as clear values have been decisive factors in determining that Ole Krogh Petersen is the right person for the job.

Chairman of the Board, Peder Hasslev, says:

“Ole and PFA are a good match. He has great experience and vast competences within the pension area as he knows the market and the increasing regulatory framework inside out. In addition to his strong qualifications, Ole also stands for proper conduct and thoroughness, and PFA’s values of being professional, fair and accountable are words I wouldn’t hesitate to use to describe Ole.” 

PFA’s new CEO calls it a dream job and emphasises customer ownership and a strong position in the market and in society in general as determining factors in choosing PFA.

Ole Krogh Petersen says:

“There is no doubt that this is a dream job for me. As a customer-owned market leader with more than 1.3 million customers, PFA is a significant player in the pension industry and in society. PFA has a strong foundation both commercially and in terms of values, and I look forward to taking part in developing this even further together with all my future colleagues at PFA.” 

Chairman of the Board, Peder Hasslev, is looking forward to Ole Krogh Petersen continuing PFA’s work with being a relevant player in Danish society:

“Our customers are increasingly aware of what their pension company can do to make a difference for them and the challenges faced by society. In relation to the climate agenda, the prevailing stress epidemic as well as overall creating a good framework for our customers to live a good senior life. There is great potential in PFA taking part in solving some of these significant challenges to an even greater extent.”

Group EVP Mads Kaagaard will be acting Group CEO until Ole Krogh Petersen joins PFA.
