Vestas' two separate sales business units (SBU) for Northern Europe and Central Europe will merge on 1 January 2018. The merger follows Vestas' strategy to ensure an agile organisation that adapts to market and customer needs.
The same rationale resulted in the establishment of SBU China and SBU Asia Pacific earlier this year. Among other things, reorganising the SBUs intends to create simpler and more agile SBUs with faster and clearer decision-making. Nils de Baar, who has been leading SBU Central Europe since 2015, will take on the role as President of SBU Vestas North & Central Europe from its headquarters in Hamburg. The Malmö office will remain an important location in Vestas' sales efforts going forward. As part of the merger, the current President of Vestas Northern Europe, Klaus Steen Mortensen, will be leaving Vestas by mutual agreement.
