Following the recent establishment of our new shopper design agency, Everland, we’re excited to announce a changing of the guard in the management team and expansion of the partner group.
Co-founder and Executive Design Director Bo Linneman is stepping down from day-to-day management to focus his talents on special projects and in particular on Kontrapunkt’s ever-growing Japanese clients.
The new leadership team to take Kontrapunkt forward into these new and transformative times consists of Thomas Gamst, Rikke Nalepa Olesen and Philip Linnemann, supported by Non-Exec Chairman Chris Still. These four will lead the newly created Kontrapunkt Group, whose ambition is to build an international presence for its clients, prospects and employees.
Rikke Nalepa Olesen takes over as Managing Director of Kontrapunkt, Thomas Gamst will be Managing Director of the newly created shopper design agency, Everland, while Philip Linnemann continues to manage Kontrapunkt Japan and takes on a new role as Strategic Director of Kontrapunkt Group.
“I am extremely proud of the growth and development that we have achieved during the past few years. The fact that I can now relinquish the day-to-day responsibilities to an amazingly competent team is just a natural part of the evolution of Kontrapunkt”, says Bo Linnemann, Founder of Kontrapunkt.
With accolades for the recent rebranding of DONG Energy to Ørsted and considerable interest from major clients in Japan, there’s good reason to be optimistic about the future. The expansion of the partnership ownership also serves to demonstrate a widening of talent involved and input into these ambitions.
Kontrapunkt’s partners are Bo Linnemann, Philip Linnemann, Rikke Nalepa Olesen, Lars Larson, Nille Halding, and Nicoline Klareskov.
Everland’s partners are Bo Linnemann, Thomas Gamst, Mikael Tonning, Ronnie Greve, and Christian Halsted.
