A new CEO for EKF

Anette Eberhard, CEO at EKF Denmark’s Export Credit Agency, is switching over to PKA AIP.
​EKF Denmark’s Export Credit Agency is to get a new CEO. After more than 17 years at EKF, of which almost 11 years as CEO, Anette Eberhard has decided to seek new challenges.
She will leave EKF on 1 October and join PKA AIP, the PKA investment branch for investments in private equity funds and co-investments, as CEO and managing partner.

Anette Eberhard has been CEO at EKF since 2007 and headed up the business during a period of strong growth in number of customers, business volumes and results.
  
”I have had some amazing years at EKF. Throughout the years, I have been pleased with the fact that we have generated results for the benefit of Danish exporters, and I am happy to be able to hand over a strong and ambitious EKF with the best financial results ever. It will be sad to say goodbye because EKF is a great company. But the job at PKA AIP is an exciting opportunity to try something new and challenge myself in a new environment. It was an offer I could not turn down”, says Anette Eberhard.
 
EKF’s Board of Directors will now set about finding a new CEO, who will be entrusted with ensuring that EKF will reach even more exporters and finance even more Danish exports in the coming years.
 
”Anette Eberhard has delivered an outstanding performance and excellent results at EKF, and we wish her all the best at PKA AIP. We will now set about finding a new, strong profile to take the next steps with us. We have an ambitious growth strategy with the objective of increasing the awareness and use of EKF’s services towards 2022, so we are entering an exciting period”, says EKF Chairman Christian Frigast.
