Vestas COO Tommy Rahbek Nielsen resigned

By Editor


Vestas said Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, current COO, has decided to leave and pursue new opportunities after more than 25 years at Vestas.

Tommy Rahbek Nielsen, who will leave the wind turbine company by end of June 2024, was pivotal in keeping Vestas running during the pandemic.

The development follows Vestas’s decision to unite its Technology organisation (CTO) and Manufacturing & Global Procurement organisation (COO) into one Technology and Operations organisation (CTOO).

Creating the CTOO organisation is expected to impact senior management roles and will not entail any restructuring at an operational level.

Anders Nielsen, current Chief Technology Officer, will head the united CTOO organization.

The united CTOO-organisation is a natural next step in Vestas’ evolution of technology and product introductions, as well as manufacturing ramp-up by simplifying interfaces both within Vestas and across the value chain.

“Vestas has built a strong backlog across onshore, offshore, and service towards the end of this decade, and we are today announcing the next step in our organisational evolution to deliver on our customer commitments,” Henrik Andersen, Group President & CEO, says.

“The united CTOO-organisation will help accelerate ramp-up and industrialisation across Vestas and the industry by simplifying interfaces, collaboration and strengthening our end-to-end approach,” Henrik Andersen said.
