Ørsted updates its executive management structure and appoints Rasmus Errboe as Deputy CEO

Following the recent launch of its updated business plan, Ørsted today announces updates to its executive management structure to simplify the structure and further sharpen the company’s focus on project execution, financial discipline, value creation, risk management, and operational excellence. Supported by a DKK 270 billion investment programme, Ørsted plans to more than double its installed renewable energy capacity to 35-38 GW by 2030.

As part of the new management structure, Ørsted establishes a new Commercial organisation under Rasmus Errboe, who is appointed Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer (CCO). Due to his new role, Rasmus Errboe will be part of the registered management of Ørsted A/S. Rasmus Errboe is currently interim CFO and was previously CEO of Region Europe at Ørsted.

Ørsted will keep its organisational set-up with three regions (Region Europe, Region Americas, and Region APAC) following the continued commercial and geographical focus of the company. Going forward, the regional CEOs, the Head of Global Stakeholder Relations, and the Head of Strategy, Portfolio, Innovation & Digital will report to the new commercial organisation under Rasmus Errboe.
