ODENSE, Denmark – Christer Mysling has been promoted to chief executive officer (CEO) of Budweg Caliper A/S succeeding Thomas E. Larsen who will move to managing the company’s sales and marketing operation, a role in which he has experience.

Mysling moves up from the position of financial director.

“It is important for us to know, that Budweg will continue to develop as the leading company Budweg is today and with Christer Mysling leading the way,” said Larsen. “I have no doubt that the company will be managed steadily. Christer is a very skilled and competent person and I therefore feel very confident placing him behind the wheel.”

“I am honored to be selected as the new CEO and I am grateful for the trust in me,” Mysling said. “I am looking forward to getting more familiar with the production and being able to consult relevant employees directly, when new ideas and initiatives are to be implemented.”

The Danish private equity firm Capidea purchased the majority share of Budweg in 2018, but everyday management remained in the hands of Larsen and his brother Jan Uwe (their father founded the firm in 1978).

Thomas Larsen will continue his membership in the Board of Directors as well as his ownership, and Jan Uwe Larsen will continue in management as well.
