The international credit information company Creditsafe establishes itself in Denmark and opens a new office in Copenhagen. Key people for the Danish operations have been recruited – including Country Manager, Morten Kofoed-Larsen.

The establishment means that Creditsafe’s popular credit information services for making safer business decisions will be available on the Danish market. This includes both Danish and international credit and business information, with access online and via API. The Danish operations are planned to be in full swing during the autumn.

“Expanding operations to new markets is in line with our long-term plans and establishing itself in Denmark is a natural next step for our continued development in Scandinavia. Copenhagen will be our 24th office in the group and it
feels great,” says Henrik Jacobsson, CEO of Creditsafe in Scandinavia.

Experienced Country Manager from the credit industry

In the role of Country Manager, Morten Kofoed-Larsen has been recruited. Morten has a long and solid experience in the credit industry and most recently came from the information company IDQ. There he had the overall responsibility for sales and created a profitable business with great growth. Morten will take on the new role at Creditsafe in April.

– I am incredibly happy and proud to have had the opportunity to build up the Danish credit information business together with Creditsafe. Denmark is an attractive but also conservative market, where I know what it takes to succeed. I have high expectations and am completely convinced that our services will be perfect for the Danish companies who want innovative solutions at competitive prices, says Morten Kofoed-Larsen. – I love challenges, so it will be an incredibly exciting journey that I am ready to take on, Morten concludes.

Large increase in sales in Scandinavia

Creditsafe has almost doubled its sales in Scandinavia over the past five years. Denmark will be an important part of being able to further grow in the region. The Scandinavian head office is located in Gothenburg, with Oslo and Copenhagen as local offices.
