“With Henriette at the helm, Terma gains a strong leader accustomed to running a global business. Therefore, she is also the right person to lead the new strategy that Terma presented in connection with our annual report, where the plan is to double our revenue over the next three years,” says Terma's Chairman Carsten Dilling, adding:

“Terma is an important company for Denmark, and that is why we went through a very thorough process with a number of strong candidates to find the right person to lead Terma forward – and we found that person in Henriette.”

The new CEO of Terma says that the company has an important responsibility, which she looks forward to leading:

“As the country’s largest defense company, Terma has a significant responsibility to deliver solutions and create technology for Denmark and, not least, for our international partners. To be able to meet that challenge, Terma is embarking on a transformative growth journey. I am very excited to be a part of that,” says Henriette Hallberg Thygesen.
