Danish offshore wind installation company Cadeler has bolstered its senior management team with three appointments, who will help the company grow and prepare it for busy times ahead. 

The new members include Pernille Korsager who joined the company in May 2022 as the company’s General Counsel (GC); Carina Cappelen who joined as Chief People & Culture Officer (CPCO) this November; and Peter Kragh Jacobsen, who was promoted to Chief Technical Officer (CTO) in July 2022.  They all worked for Maersk at some point.

Our new Senior Management members will add valuable knowledge and experience to the team, making sure we are well prepared as demand for our services continues to be strong.”
