New managing director at Velux

Jacob Madsen is the new managing director of Velux Deutschland GmbH. He thus succeeds Felix Egger, who has occupied the position on a provisional basis since January and is returning to the helm of Velux Schweiz AG after handing over his responsibilities. Danish-born Madsen has spent the last 13 years occupying various managerial roles at Danfoss, most recently as senior vice president for heating and heat exchangers. He is now returning to the Velux Group, where he served previously as managing director of Velux Hrvatska and later as head of international marketing for Rooflite.
