New CTO - R&D Senior VP to help DEIF prepare for the future

We’re pleased to announce that Jacob Støvring Christensen joins DEIF on 2 October. Jacob comes to DEIF from Vestas Wind Systems A/S and will sign on as the CTO – Senior VP for DEIF’s Power & Marine R&D organisation. At Vestas, Jacob spearheaded the control engineering function – a global team with more than 130 employees.


“For years, I have known DEIF as a well-renowned company that truly delivers quality in every aspect of its business. The sense of community, dedication and passion firmly rooted in all employees combined with the company’s longstanding ambitions to deliver unsurpassed green, safe and reliable power control solutions make me see great potential for the future R&D activities at DEIF.”

Cooperating with nearly 100 dedicated R&D colleagues at DEIF, Jacob will help intensify our focus on technology development and take our innovative software and data management solutions to the next level.

Our long-standing Senior VP of R&D in DEIF Power & Marine, Jan Aagaard, has wished to step down from the position as SVP R&D. From 1 October he will head up a new Product Quality function that will strengthen our focus on quality all the way from design to testing.


"After a series of exciting and challenging years, I now believe it is time for a change in R&D. Today’s rapidly changing market demands require us to continuously embrace new technologies and be innovative. It is my belief that the coming years will call for dedicated competences, among others to lead the development of large and mainly software-based products and solutions”, Jan Aagaard concludes.
