NetDania’s co-founders David T. Hansen and Thomas Elster will now step more into the leadership of the company. Hansen will take up the role of the Danish firm’s Executive Chairman of the Board while Elster has been appointed as the new CEO.
In a statement, the company praised the enormous contribution to the transformation of Brylle, who had just recently celebrated his 61st birthday.
“The three of us have worked together for a long time. Stig and David for 30 years since they were both traders at a hedge fund. From 1992 they built several FinTech ventures, and in 1999 Thomas joined, and the 3 of us founded NetDania,” David and Thomas said in a joint statement.
