Eurowind Energy has appointed Søren Bæk Just (46) as their new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and member of the executive board. He will be replacing Uffe Bak-Aagaard who wants to step down in order to spend more time with his family within the next year, which is why he will stay in the company as an Executive Advisor.
Søren Bæk Just is coming from a position as CFO at KK Wind Solutions. He has previously worked for large Danish companies, such as Grundfos, Danfoss, and Vestas. His educational background is a Master’s degree in Auditing and Taxation from Aarhus Business School and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Aarhus Business School and Oregon State University.
CEO at Eurowind Energy, Jens Rasmussen, said about the appointment:
“We are very pleased that Søren has accepted the offer to become a part of Eurowind Energy. We are certain that Søren will contribute to our continuing growth with his experience and knowledge. Søren is a great fit for our company with his professional competencies, knowledge of the industry, and personality. At the same time, we would like to thank Uffe for a great effort and contribution throughout the years. We are pleased that Uffe stays in the company as it allows Søren to draw on Uffe’s experience which has been built up throughout 14 years in the company. In this way, we will see a natural and smooth generational succession in this key position in the company.”
Gert Vinther Jørgensen, Chairman of the Board, said:
“We will miss Uffe’s financial stewardship and strategic insights. He is one of the architects of today’s Eurowind Energy, key to its transformation from start-up to strong renewable energy company. After a thorough selection process, the board is pleased to have chosen Søren as Eurowind Energy’s next CFO. With his international financial and commercial experience and a deep understanding of the renewable energy industry, he will play an important role as Eurowind Energy continues to develop in a fast-changing energy market.

“To me, this is an incredible opportunity. Eurowind Energy is an attractive company that is experiencing tremendous growth. I have followed Eurowind Energy through several years, and I have been fascinated by the development. At the same time, it has become clear to me that there is a strong culture and a fixed set of values within the company. I look forward to making good use of my knowledge and experience in order to contribute to the growth of the company, as well as becoming a part of the culture at Eurowind Energy.”
