Aalborg University is looking for a new external member of the University Board because Torben Möger Pedersen has resigned his post as of 21 March in order to become chair of the board at Copenhagen Business School (CBS).

Rector Per Michael Johansen and Chair of the Board Lene Espersen say:

‘We’re both happy and sad to announce that Torben Möger Pedersen has stepped down from the University Board with immediate effect. We’re happy to learn that CBS deems one of AAU’s talented board members to be valuable in their further strategic work. We’re sad because, together with the other board members and AAU’s management, we will miss Torben, his professionalism, his knowledge and his strategic focus, which is always at the heart of his work. Our heartfelt thanks to Torben for his great efforts in the Aalborg University Board and for his time as deputy chair.’

At the next board meeting on 1 April, a new deputy chair will be appointed. As soon as possible, the process of finding a new external member will be initiated.
