Vilofoss Group appoints new CEO

With effect from 1 June, Dennis Jørgensen will take over the position as CEO of the Vilofoss Group, where he will lead the company's continued development. He brings with him many years of experience from the vitamin and mineral industry.

Agriculture has been the focal point of Dennis Jørgensen's entire career and on 1 June, he will assume a leadership role in one of Denmark’s largest companies, the DLG Group. Here, he takes over as CEO of the Group's vitamins and minerals business, the Vilofoss Group, which has activities in most of Europe and partners in several continents. 

He takes over from Jesper Pagh, Group COO and member of the Executive Board of the DLG Group, who was the interim Head of Vilofoss, when the former CEO left to take on a job closer to his home country, the Netherlands. 

"I am pleased that Dennis has accepted the role as Head of Vilofoss. Dennis comes with years of experience and in-depth industry knowledge. Over the years, he has created great results, and at the same time he is a skilled leader who sets direction, drives development, and manages to involve his team. I really look forward to our collaboration," says Jesper Pagh.

Dennis Jørgensen is a trained farmer and started his career in management positions in agriculture. In 1998, he chose to become more commercially oriented and over the years, he has held leadership responsibilities in companies such as Brenntag Nordic and AB Agri in Denmark and the UK. In 2022, he completed a management education at INSEAD and today runs his own company, Nordic Nutrition Partner A/S. 

"It was an active choice when I started my own business, and I had actually thought that it should be the focal point for the rest of my career. However, when the opportunity to lead Vilofoss presented itself, I did not hesitate. For 25 years, I have worked with the DLG Group, so I have good knowledge of the strategic direction and the ambition to commercialize sustainable solutions towards agriculture. At the same time, the Group has a strong set of values that align well with my own. I am very much looking forward to getting started and meeting all my new colleagues," says Dennis Jørgensen. 

Dennis Jørgensen is married to Inge, and they live in Vejle, Denmark, with their two teenage sons. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking and crossfit.
