BESTSELLER CEO and owner Anders Holch Povlsen, said: “We are very pleased that Niels Christian has chosen to accept the task, and we look forward to having his skills in play, so that we become even better at telling the outside world about the many initiatives and agendas we work with in BESTSELLER.
“We are probably not known for talking too much about ourselves. However, we want to communicate clearly and precisely about the things that concern us and our industry. That requires some nuances, and we are confident that Niels Christian with his experience can help make room for just this.”
Niels Christian Jung adds: “BESTSELLER is involved in so many initiatives, from sustainable development in the fashion industry to charities and sponsorships. My ambition on behalf of BESTSELLER is to tell the company’s stories with honest openness reflecting a transparent company that takes responsibility and that contributes to the wider society”.
Morten Norlyk, Press Responsible & Interim Communication Manager, is to take on the role of Sustainability Communication Manager, reporting to Niels Christian Jung. He will focus on increasing visibility on both internal and external sustainability communication.
