It is a truly interesting time, as Saxo Bank serves more clients than ever before, with ambitious plans to further scale and enable even more people to fulfil their financial aspirations and make an impact.

“Bright minds and dedicated people are foundational to success, and I look forward to getting to know the organisation better and contributing to Saxo’s future growth.”

Kim Fournais, CEO & founder, commented, “We are delighted to soon welcome Brit to Saxo Bank. She brings an impressive track-record within leadership and people and organisational development. Our more than 2,500 talented and devoted Saxonians are our most important asset, and they work passionately on giving our growing client base the best platforms, products, and services. As Saxo’s new CHRO, Brit and her team are crucial in ensuring that we constantly grow and develop skills and knowledge, while collaborating even better together across teams to give our more than 800,000 clients the best experience.”
