NREP appoints Henrik Skak Bender as COO

NREP taps Henrik Skak Bender as new COO and partner. The former Group CFO at WS Audiology joins the company to strengthen the leadership team at a time where focus on culture, performance and people is key for realizing an ambitious 2025 growth plan. Strong values, clear prioritization and agile structures are top priorities, says Bender.


The former Group CFO at WS Audiology joins NREP to strengthen the leadership team at a time where focus on culture, performance and people is key for realising an ambitious 2025 growth plan. Strong values, clear prioritisation and agile structures are top priorities, says Bender.

Henrik Skak Bender says a strong growth trajectory, high ambitions and solid values have been the key drivers behind his decision to move from being Group CFO in a global top three hearing aid company to the new role as COO for NREP.

During the last fifteen years, Henrik Skak Bender has worked in global companies like AP Moller - Maersk, McKinsey & Co and recently WS Audiology. He has during this period advised and executed on mergers and acquisitions worth more than EUR30 billion in total and completed refinances for close to EUR8 billion.

In 2013, he joined Danish hearing aid company Widex, first as responsible for the transformation of the company and then later as Group CFO. Since 2019, he was Group CFO and Head of Integration with WS Audiology following the merger between Widex and Sivantos, another global hearing aid company owned by private equity firm EQT. WS Audiology has 11.000 employees and delivers a revenue around EUR2 billion. However, Henrik Skak Bender does not see a huge difference between his new role at NREP compared to leading a large organisation of thousands of employees.
