After three years of ownership under CVC Capital Partners, STARK Group is now beginning the work of establishing an external board. That task is now placed in the hands of chairman, Jens Bjørn Andersen.

Jens Bjørn Andersen is the former CEO of DSV, a leading provider of transport and logistics services. Under his leadership, DSV nearly quintupled its revenue to more than EUR 20 billion in 2023. He resigned from the position in January this year.

“Becoming the chairman of STARK Group is a task I can only accept," says Jens Bjørn Andersen. "STARK Group is an exciting company that plays a central role in the construction industry, and it is on a remarkable growth journey.

"It breeds respect when a company can increase its annual net sales from EUR 2.3 billion to more than EUR 8 billion. in five years through organic growth and acquisitions of companies. The company’s philosophy of local ownership and focus on performance management is a world I myself have cultivated and believe in.”

Today, Søren Vestergaard-Poulsen holds the position as chairman of the board for STARK Group, where, as a managing partner for CVC Capital Partner, he represents STARK Group’s owners, CVC. He continues in the role of vice chairman of STARK Group’s board.

“I am impressed by what DSV has achieved under Jens Bjørn Andersen’s leadership. Its clear focus on acquisitions and integration of companies is a great inspiration for the development of STARK Group," says Søren Vestergaard-Poulsen. "In addition, he brings with him knowledge of logistics and capital markets, which can be useful now and a few years into the future. I look forward to working with Jens Bjørn.”
