Former Lego CEO steps down from board

Published on: 26th March 2019

The move comes as Lego looks to undergo a “generation shift”. 

Former president and CEO of Danish company Lego, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, will step down from the the board at the general meeting in April, the company’s owner has announced.

“This is a completely natural next step in the generation shift,” said chief executive Soren Thorup Sorensen of Kirkbi, the family holding company behind Lego.

Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen will remain chairman of the board at Kirkbi and vice chairman of the Lego Foundation, the company said.
