Change in DLF top management

Søren Halbye assumed his new position as Group CEO on 1 November. He has taken over the responsibility from Truels Damsgaard

Søren Halbye is well known in the international seed business and he brings a lot of experience from 16 years in the top management in DLF. As Chief Commercial Officer and Executive Vice President for the DLF Greater Europe business unit, he has been essential in the DLF Group’s growth journey.

Truels Damsgaard has been a part of DLF for 35 years, the last 16 years as CEO, where DLF has gone from being a leading grass seed company in Europe to becoming a global market leader in plant breeding, production and sales of forage and turf seed.

Today DLF has a significant position within sugar beet seed, a strong presence in the vegetable seed industry and a good foothold in seed potatoes. On behalf of the whole of DLF we wish Truels Damsgaard good luck going forward.
