Monday, July 25, 2022

IVC Evidensia today announces the retirement of Paul Kenyon, Group Chief Financial Officer. During his time in the role, Paul successfully led the finance function through the Covid-19 pandemic, the VetStrategy merger and the Group’s ongoing expansion into new countries.

The process to find a replacement has been under way since earlier this year, when Paul officially informed the Board of his intention to retire.

After a thorough search process, the Group is delighted today to announce the appointment of Heine Dalsgaard as Paul’s successor in the Group CFO role.

Heine is currently CFO at Carlsberg A/S. Prior to joining Carlsberg, Heine had a successful career in senior finance roles, including a number of CFO positions, at businesses such as ISS, Grundfos and Hewlett Packard.

Heine will join the business at the turn of the year at the latest and there will be a suitable handover with Paul to ensure an orderly transition.

Kate Swann, Chair, said: “We thank Paul Kenyon for his commitment to IVC Evidensia during such a pivotal period for the company and wish him well in retirement. I am extremely pleased to announce Heine Dalsgaard as his replacement – with more than 15 years of experience in group CFO roles, Heine is experienced in leading high performing finance teams as well as strategically contributing to business growth.”

Heine Dalsgaard, incoming CFO, said: “IVC Evidensia is the global leader in veterinary care and is well positioned to continue to grow. Throughout the interview process I was impressed by the passion and dedication of everyone within the group for delivering outstanding care. I am excited to join and to help the team continue on the journey to realising its full potential.”
