- The Board of Directors has decided to change the composition of the Group Executive Management. We wished to make a change with a new person in the important role as the officer in charge of Credits and Compliance. We find that Sydbank’s current Group Executive Vice President, Credits, Stig Westergaard, is an excellent choice in this area and for the Bank. The Board of Directors knows Stig Westergaard as a competent and very pleasant business partner, comments Chairman of Sydbank’s Board of Directors Lars Mikkelgaard-Jensen.
