Pernille Fritz Vilhelmsen has been appointed Executive Vice President & Chief People & Culture Officer and member of the Executive Management Board in Hempel A/S. She succeeds Peter Kirkegaard, a 13-year veteran of Hempel who has accepted a new opportunity outside Hempel as Chief Human Resource Officer in Haldor Topsoe A/S.

Pernille has been Talent Management Director at Hempel since she joined from Maersk Line in 2017, and she has delivered remarkable results in a few years.

"Pernille is professional, personable, grounded and has a special way of combining high personal integrity with high interest in others," said Lars Petersson, Group President and CEO, Hempel.
