I have known Kaj since I founded SIGNAL 18 years ago and we have kept contact during all the years he has been working globally. Therefore, I know that he is absolutely the right person for the job and to be managing the work culture of SIGNAL DK. Per Feldthaus and I are looking forward our collaboration with Kaj, and to be able to focus more on the global markets, as well as opening new SIGNAL offices around the world, which will now be possible with Kaj as Director of SIGNAL DK” says Gitte Andersen, Global Head of Workplace Management & Design, SIGNAL Group, Head of SIGNAL UK and one of the original founding members of SIGNAL.

”Having worked abroad for many years I now look forward to bringing my global experiences back to SIGNAL – and continue developing relevant concepts within strategic workplace management and design together with SIGNAL’s top management.
