Ole Lehrmann Madsen replaces his 19-year chief executive position with an ambassador role for the Alexandra Institute

In cooperation with the recruitment company, Amrop, the Alexandra Institute's board is seeking a new CEO to continue the IT company's success.

Ole Lehrmann Madsen will retire on 31 December 2019 to make room for a new director after building and developing the Alexandra Institute. The result of strong and visionary Aarhus forces in 1999 has grown into a large and well-functioning company with over 120 highly competent employees in both Aarhus and Copenhagen.

It has been 19 years of growth with a unique research and commercial focus on the possibilities of digitization. An agenda that is more relevant than ever for Danish companies, politicians and society. In particular, 2018 has been a tremendous year with significant growth and many new major tasks, says Ole Lehrmann Madsen.

The board of directors wants to involve Ole Lehrmann Madsen with an ambassador role in relation to the large network that the Alexandra Institute has created over the years.

- I am looking forward to no longer being responsible for the day-to-day operations but to be able to concentrate on more outgoing tasks - of course without interference in the future management of the institute, says Ole Lehrmann Madsen, who started out with his position as director 4-5 hours a week.

The new director will continue this work together with the competent employees. It is a unique position where you work with some of the country's most competent experts while at the same time you work to promote social development. It is an innovative IT company with both market focus and focus on future technologies. A great combination that creates value, growth and welfare, explains the chairman of the board, Steen Lynenskjold.

The recruitment process starts now with commencement around 1 October 2019. The new CEO will work together with Ole Lehrmann Madsen until 31 December 2019, where the final handover will take place.
