Mortensen double role at Vestas

Danish wind group Vestas said its president for Northern Europe, Klaus Steen Mortensen, will also take on the same role for Central Europe on an acting basis, replacing Thomas Richterich.

Mortensen will hold both posts as of January while a permanent replacement is found for Richterich, who had held the Central Europe top job for a year.

Richterich, a former Nordex CEO, was appointed president for the Central Europe operation on an interim basis in January 2013.

No further details of the senior management change have been given by Vestas, which revealed it in a brief statement via its Twitter feed.
