"Susanne has the profile, experience and personality to head Greenland's most important company," Maliina Abelsen, chair of Royal Greenland's board, said.

"She will help to ensure the company's continued development in Greenland, while maintaining the international focus", she said.

"Together with the employees and the board, I believe that we can achieve the goals set for Royal Greenland" Rajamand added.
