And not least have her join the Group Management team, where I am convinced that she with her vast international experience will make great contributions,” says Mads Nipper CEO & Group President.
Lone Tvis joins from Arla Foods, where she over a period of 9 years has held several positions as HR Vice President, most recently for Global Supply Chain and previously for Consumer Central Europe and Global Categories and Operations.

“I am very excited to be joining Grundfos. Not only is Grundfos an industry leader, offering innovative solutions to some of our planets most pressing issues. It is also an impressive organisation with a rich history, building on strong values and driven by passionate people to be a force for good in a globalised and growing world,” says Lone Tvis.
