New CEO at Metro International

It has just been announced that Per Mikael Jensen has resigned as CEO of TV2 Denmark as he has been appointed CEO of Metro International.

Alot of people will wonder why Metro didnt find an outsider to provide fresh thinking and so on post Pelle Tornberg. This appears at first to be a real missed opportunity but I believe that actually PMJ is a good call.

He is an experienced media executive who has the added advantage of knowing Metro inside and out. He knows the fault lines and can get to them far quicker than someone coming in new. Additionally, he is a good guy and Metro needs alot of employee love and nurture.

Not what we expected but actually a good decision.
