COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Danish brewer Carlsberg said on Thursday it had appointed the current head of services provider ISS as its new chief executive.
Aarup-Andersen will replace Cees't Hart, who said earlier this month he would retire by the end of the third quarter.
The exact starting date of Carlsberg's new CEO would be announced later, the brewer said in a statement.
Carlsberg's shares extended gains on the news, trading 4% higher 1444 GMT, while ISS' shares fell 6%.
Aarup-Andersen became CEO at ISS in 2020 after he had been rejected by Denmark's financial regulator to take over the helm in Danske Bank, the country's largest lender, on the grounds that his banking experience was not sufficient.
