To strengthen growth and support the great ambitions of Danish Pig Genetics, the company is now hiring a director with knowledge of pig production and genetics. For a long time Danish Pig Genetics has been looking for the right person to lead the company and the planned growth.

“For a long time, we have been looking for the right profile for the position as CEO of Danish Pig Genetics. It is a position that requires insight into both the pig industry, genetics, and the structure of the agricultural sector. In addition, we need a strong profile that can lead the ambitions we have to grow the company – not least internationally. Henrik Biilmann possesses these competencies, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming him to the company,” says Steen Bødtker, Chairman of the Board of Danish Pig Genetics.

Through his previous employments, Henrik has extensive experience with business development and growth of companies – both in Denmark and internationally.

“I am looking forward to helping to fulfill the high ambitions of Danish Pig Genetics. The company has already grown strongly since its establishment in August 2018, and it will be exciting to contribute my experiences in the further development,” says Henrik Biilmann.

Henrik Biilmann lives in Risskov with his wife and two daughters. He will take up the position as CEO of Danish Pig Genetics on 1 February 2022.
