After 14 years with the company, of which the last two and a half have been as CEO, Camilla Birkegaard is resigning from her position at DYKON, as she wants to spend more time with her family in the future.
DYKON has been producing duvets and pillows since 1947. Today, DYKON is a modern, innovative, and solid company focused on high-quality duvets and pillows with natural filling, which are manufactured at DYKON’s own factory in Denmark.
Since 2018, DYKON’s majority owner has been private equity fund Erhvervsinvest.
“DYKON has been a big part of my family’s life for the past 25 years, and it has developed into a healthy and successful company and one of the leading manufacturers of duvets and pillows with natural filling in Northern Europe. So, it is with great pride that I choose to step aside and send DYKON on on the company’s amazing journey. The last 2½ years as CEO have been both exciting and educational, but of course also required extraordinary effort.
I’d like to thank all the dedicated and skilled employees who have, and have had, a HUGE impact on DYKON’s success. I will not be letting go of the company, and I look forward to continuing my work with DYKON and the new CEO through my position on the board,” says Camilla Birkegaard, who will continue as co-owner and board member of DYKON after her resignation.
The new CEO will be Ege Slettnes Møller, CEO of Ønskebørn A/S. As CEO of Ønskebørn for the past 5 years, Ege Slettnes Møller has produced good results and is leaving the owners with a healthy business.
“I very much look forward to getting started and – with the skilled and dedicated employees – building on Camilla Birkegaard’s work with DYKON, contributing to the continued positive development. With its high-quality products, DYKON has a strong position in Northern Europe, a position I believe I can help make even stronger, while there is also great potential to grow the company further internationally outside Scandinavia,” Ege Slettnes Møller says.
Ege Slettnes Møller will take over as CEO of DYKON on 1 July 2021.
“Camilla Birkegaard has been of great importance to DYKON, and we appreciate the collaboration we have had since 2018 and commend her for having the courage to take over as CEO 2 years ago.
On behalf of DYKON, we are pleased to present Ege Slettnes Møller as the new CEO.
At Erhvervsinvest, and on DYKON’s Board of Directors, we look forward to continuing the work of further developing DYKON in close collaboration with the new CEO, supported by a strong team of employees,” says Thomas Marstrand, Chairman of DYKON and Managing Partner at Erhvervsinvest.
