Importance of the internal culture
IST is a company that emphasizes a healthy internal culture very much. Therefore, the former CEO of Business Region Denmark, Anne Frederiksen, has chosen to enter a streamlined role as the CPO - Chief Peoples Officer.

- In order to be the best employer, partner and supplier, it is important never to ignore the importance of our internal culture. That's why the role of CPO is more important than ever and I'm really glad that Anne Frederiksen takes on the responsibility to ensure that we are not only strong in the industry but also have an important focus on how we run our business internally, says Tommy Eklund, CEO of IST Group.

Targeted recruitment
Anne Frederiksen's new role has left room for a new CEO of Business Region Denmark. As of September 1, Anne Brink Pedersen will be in charge of the Danish company and is thus responsible for the company's further development.

Anne Brink Pedersen has, in her role as Head of Department at the Danish Ministry of Education, recently been recognized as one of Denmark's Great Talents in Berlingske Business Talent100.

- IST is an exciting group that, with the user at the center, exploits the opportunities that digitalization provides. I am looking forward to creating solutions that students, parents, teachers, educators and administrations can benefit from every day, says Anne Brink Pedersen.

- Being able to recruit a person of Anne's caliber is absolutely amazing. We are constantly increasing demands for us as a supplier to schools, and Anne will make a significant contribution to the further development. Our success continues, and the people who contribute to this journey are our most important resource, says Tommy Eklund.
