Organisational changes in Group Procurement

Pernille Hüls Dyrmose, VP, Group Procurement

To support our continued focus on growing and moving, we have implemented organisational changes in Group Procurement.

Group Procurement is now managed by a leadership team consisting of Frederik Fahrenholtz (Head of Indirect & Onboard Procurement), Manisha Mathur (Head of Direct Procurement) and Pernille Hüls Dyrmose (VP, Group Procurement).

Lene Kragkær Nilsson has been appointed Operational Procurement Manager effective 1 September.

Starting in 2013 as a Business Analyst in Group Procurement, Lene has worked as Sourcing Manager, and most recently as Digital Project Manager. She has delivered great results and been recognised for her efforts. Sertica, the governance around a cross-functional system and user experience, have come a long way under her care. Lene will take on the new and exciting challenge of managing a team of purchasers across DFDS locations (France, Lithuania and Denmark), and Lene will report to me.
Please join me in congratulating Lene Kragkær Nilsson on her new role.

We believe that Lene’s new role, the leadership team and the new organisational structure will put Group Procurement in a good position to tackle the challenges of 2020 and contribute towards WIN23. The new departmental structure will also help facilitate even more focus on the various functions, such as digital, operations and compliance. It will also maintain the focus on our key strategic support to the business. In Group Procurement we look forward to working with you all in this new structure.
