Merete Eldrup holds a MSc. in Economics (cand.polit.) and started her career in the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Energy Agency.

“Every day, Egmont reaches millions of people through a wide range of strong media companies – including TV 2 in Norway, which resembles TV 2 in Denmark. At the same time, the media group is on a growth journey with several new business areas. I look forward to supporting the continued strategic development,” says Merete Eldrup.
