International Director with Bring Frigo AB since September 2018. Henriette has mostly worked with FMCG within supply chain focusing on cost savings, optimisation and change management. Prior to the role with Bring Frigo, she has been with Carlsberg for 8 years and Arla Foods for 5 years.
She started within procurement with Marketing as the main category. One of the biggest undertakings was to harmonise Carlsberg’s media buying with one agency and to introduce auditing of the media buying itself, with major savings as a results. From procurement she moved into production complexity management in order to obtain greater production efficiencies and this project took her down the supply chain track leading into roles as head of central planning in Carlsberg and later on as Supply Chain Director for Carlsberg UK for four years (2008-2012).
She moved back to Denmark in 2012 and worked for Arla Foods as Logistics Director in Denmark until 2016 when she was appointed COO of Peugeot Citroen, Nordics and Baltics. The role as International Director of Bring Frigo AB has a strong commercial profile and has taken her back into FMCG.
The four years in the UK has meant that Henriette is strongly rooted in the UK and several British traditions, such as making Sunday roasts and enjoying a nice pint, have been brought back to Denmark. In general cooking is a major hobby and to offset this, fitness and running is a key priority as well.
