Fun fact: I was born 10 weeks early
I am an avid sports fan, who hates to lose, despite being an otherwise calm and collected guy, from a small town in the central part of Jutland. I have studied a Master’s degree in Finance at Aarhus University and after living ten years in Aarhus, I currently live in Skanderborg with my wife and daughter.
I joined DC as a student employee in the Strategic Business Development team, because DC is the perfect place to work if you are ambitious, want to take responsibility and make a real impact. I really love the variety and dynamics of my job; the fast-paced culture and young environment at DC combined with the passion, the dedication and the agile mind-set of the DC people is truly amazing. Being part of DC and its journey is something I will never ever forget.
Jens Bruun, Executive Assistant to CEO
I am Executive Assistant to our CEO, where I work closely together with DC’s Senior Management team and the Board of Directors. In my job as a trusted advisor and all-round Swiss Army knife for our CEO, I deal with various interesting initiatives in the cross field between management, strategy, communications, business development, project management and leadership support, which gets me involved with a lot of great people across DC.
As no two days are alike at DC, I have a hard time explaining a typical work day. Working with the Senior Management Group and Board of Directors gets me involved in a large variety of different areas ranging from recommendations for the CEO, decision papers, communications, strategy development and execution, town hall meetings, management summits, corporate governance guidelines to the ‘more standard stuff’ such as writing meeting minutes and following up on decisions and execution.
The best part of my job is working in the middle of DC’s epicentre. In my job, I get the opportunity to shape the direction and future of our great company, together with some of the most competent and inspiring people I have ever met.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
