Jens Lund joined DSV as Group CFO in 2002 – at the age of 32. In 2000, he was working for Carnegie Investment Bank and was the lead corporate finance advisor for DSV on the acquisition of DFDS Dantransport. He did such a good job that then CEO Kurt K. Larsen eventually asked him to become the CFO of the new (DSV) DFDS Transport Group. And the rest is history, as they say.
What impressed Kurt K. Larsen – in addition to his corporate finance expertise – was Jens Lund’s work ethic and drive. He is a very hard worker. He sees things through and finds a way to complete the tasks at hand, even if they’re slightly beyond his skillset. He is definitely not afraid to get his hands dirty or jump in the deep end. In fact, he is confident he will be able to solve whatever problem he faces.
