Kamilla van der Velde will replace Vibeke Weinreich Mignard as Ole Lynggaard Cogenhagen’s manager in Australia and New Zealand next month.
After two years in Australia, Weinreich Mignard will return to Europe to launch Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen into the French market.
She said she was confident that her successor would be able to “extend the success of the brand in the thriving Australian market”.
Born in Denmark, Kamilla van der Velde has spent several years living abroad in the US, Eastern Europe, The Netherlands, Russia and Asia, and is now permanently settled in Sydney with her husband and two children.
She said her new appointment was “truly a dream job”.
“It’s wonderful to be part of a company like Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen with such a dynamic team who all share the same values and passion for high quality handcrafted design as I do and to promote such a strong Danish brand in this wonderful part of the world,” she said.
“I look forward to furthering the brand and working effectively with all our key partners in Australia and New Zealand.”
