39-year old Tine Kaspersen takes over the chief executive position at Horten, one of Denmark’s largest law firms. Tine Kaspersen comes from a position as the COO of BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group, and before that, she was employed with Mærsk Line.
The chairman of the board at Horten, Mikkel Primdal Kæregaard, says the following about the choice of Tine Kaspersen:
“When you look at Tine’s strong profile, she is a perfect match for the position as Horten’s CEO. At BIG, she has proved her strength as part of the management in an innovative partner-operated business in growth, and she therefore contributes with both experience and competencies and not least a novel approach when it comes to operating a partner-owned business, which we wish to strengthen further.
Horten is continuing to grow and is one of Denmark’s leading law firms. In recent years, we have been working strategically on making the business even more agile, and we have made a number of opt-ins and opt-outs in terms of management, including the decision to employ a new CEO. Tine Kaspersen is going to ensure the framework for Horten's continued growth and shape the course of Horten's future development, both in relation to the internal organisation and the external profile.”
The change in Horten’s top management takes places after a period of non-stop growth for the last 15 years. Horten’s present size as one of Denmark’s largest law firms, the expansion the last two years with offices in Aarhus and Herning and a wish to grow further mean that now is the right time to move the business in terms of management and strategy.
“I am proud to accept the position as CEO at Horten. Horten is a solid, well-managed and modern business in the middle of an exciting strategic development. I see great potential, which I am looking forward to contributing to realizing further.
My greatest professional inspiration is to spend time with skilled people who want something important with their business, and I know that I will have every opportunity to do so at Horten. I look forward to 3 August and to get to know the clients, the business and its employees”, says Tine Kaspersen.
Tine Kaspersen will take up her new position on 3 August 2020 and is to raise and adapt Horten’s profile and manage and implement its growth strategy. She will take over the position from Kjeld Rask.
