Per klitgård joins Thylander as partner and minority owner

Danica’s former CEO, Per Klitgård, has become a Partner and minority owner at Thylander, acquiring a 10 percent ownership stake in the company. Per’s ownership strengthens Thylander’s partner group with one of the most experienced figures from the Danish pension industry. We are truly excited about this new partnership.   

“We have known Per for many years as an investor and board member, benefiting greatly from his extensive institutional experience. Per holds a deep understanding of Thylander’s values and goals. It is a true pleasure that Per wants to step in as Partner”, says Lars Thylander. 

In addition to his board of directors role at Thylander Gruppen, Per Klitgård is an active member on a number of boards of Danish and international companies. Prior to this, he has succesfully held leading positions in the Danish business sector for over 20 years, most recently as the CEO of Danica Pension. He is now looking forward to his new role at Thylander. 

Thylander has delivered highly competitive returns for many years – and even more so when benchmarked against similar companies in the market. At the same time, Thylander is on an impressive and exciting journey, well-positioned to seize the interesting opportunities that lie ahead in the market. I am looking forward to contribute to the continued development with my knowledge and experience”, says Per Klitgård.
