Copenhagen, 1 December –  Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, announced that Christian Leif Hansen has been named its CEO of the Nordic region. His appointment reflects the growth of operations in the area following the acquisition of Sedgwick Leif Hansen A/S in Denmark earlier this year.

The move unites more than 250 Sedgwick colleagues throughout the Nordic region under an ambitious vision for growth. As CEO, Christian Leif Hansen will lead a talented leadership team that includes Dan Sivertsen, who was recently appointed CEO of Norway, Julia Holm, CEO in Sweden and Peter Agger, deputy CEO in Denmark.

Christian Leif Hansen’s exceptional track record, regional expertise and entrepreneurial spirit will be valuable assets as he leads the acceleration of Sedgwick’s strategic expansion in one of the company’s most important international focus areas – the Nordics.

“Since finalizing our acquisition of Sedgwick Leif Hansen A/S, the pace of growth activity across the Nordic region has increased significantly,” says Stewart Steel, Sedgwick CEO for continental Europe, the Middle East and Africa (CEMEA). “This has laid a strong foundation for our enhanced Nordic leadership team structure to flourish and continue developing Sedgwick’s offerings there. Christian’s immense experience and strategic vision will ensure that our colleagues across the Nordic countries are optimally positioned as we grow in this important region.”

“I am excited about the opportunity to lead our Nordic operations in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, to ensure we provide world-class services and solutions to our domestic and international clients,” Christian Leif Hansen says. “We have experienced a significant growth in the Danish market over the last years, experience which we will use to unlock the potential that exists across these markets.”
