X-Yachts Appoint New CEO


It is with great pleasure that X-Yachts announces the appointment of Mr Per Dollerup Mikkelsen as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Per Dollerup Mikkelsen is 52-years-old and has extensive experience as a CEO. He has spent the last nine years as head of Scanglas A/S, part of the French-owned industrial group, Saint-Gobain. His tenure as CEO of Scanglas was marked by a period of impressive results.

The decision to employ a new CEO was taken to allow co-owner Lars Jeppesen to shift his focus away from management and allow him to concentrate on product development and new designs. X-Yachts is confident that Per Dollerup Mikkelsen is the perfect person to guide the company’s continuing success and economic growth.

‘We are confident that our company will benefit from Per’s knowledge and expertise,’ said Lars Jeppesen. ‘Per is an active sailor and understands the unique reputation for quality and speed that X-Yachts enjoys throughout the world.’
