It is not often that very new is also associated with great experience. However, this will be the case when on 1 April Jens Jakob Hjorth-Hartmann joins DFDS as new HR Manager for Denmark and adds his combined expertise from his current and previous jobs to DFDS. “And this is a lot. He holds a degree in law and has been working with HR from a whole range of perspectives – legal as well as commercial and strategic – in international companies and associations. He comes to DFDS from shipowners’ body Danish Shipping, so he is also familiar with the HR perspectives in our industry,” says Kasper Damgaard, VP of Group HR.

“With his combined skills and natural empathy, he will be able to help us elevate HR’s role as a sparring partner for the organisation, reinforce our HR processes and structures and – not least – help us continue improving the way we deal with people at DFDS. Please join me in welcoming Jens Jakob to DFDS,” he says.

Jens Jakob Hjorth-Hartmann will be based at DFDS House and will report to Kasper Damgaard.
