We are glad to introduce Mikael Denhardt as our new CEO in CM Aqua – says Asbjørn Reinkind, Chairman of BoD - we believe he can continue the well-established CM Aqua values of partnership, trust and be instrumental in reaching our increased company ambitions.

Mikael Denhardt joins CM Aqua in March and has a strong technical background and is educated BSc in Engineering.

From 2002 to 2014 Mikael was working for LEGO in multiple senior management positions responsible for different areas as novelty product development, manufacturing, lean-implementation in several countries and procurement (then based in Singapore for 3 years).

Mikael joined Danfoss Cooling in 2014 as Project Director (product development globally eg valves in air-conditioning)  and then Senior Director Business Development (eg Sensors incl digitalization, IoT and connectivity) until February 2021.

“I believe RAS/Aquaculture has the potential to serve the growing global demand for protein sources, with a positive CO2 footprint – says Mikael Denhardt – and with the newly launched Drumfilter HEX version X and RATZ Protein Skimmer, CM Aqua has the strong foundation to secure success of our customers, so I look very much forward to meeting both existing- and new customers.”
