Larsen steps down as DSV chairman

Kurt K. Larsen has today resigned as chairman and board member of fast-growing Danish logistics giant DSV, having been a pivotal figure in the development of the acquisitive forwarder which recently completed its merger with Panalpina.

Thomas Plenborg, the newly-elected chairman of the DSV board, said: “Throughout 30 years, Kurt K. Larsen has faithfully worked to deliver outstanding results, and he has played a major part in the company’s continued success. We wish Kurt an enjoyable and well-deserved retirement with his family.”

At an extraordinary meeting yesterday (September 24), in which Plenborg was elected as chairman, Jorgen Moller was also elected to be deputy chairman.
