AEC director Mads Qvist FrederiksenThe Arctic Economic Council (AEC) has hired a new director, Mads Qvist Frederiksen. He will take over from Anu Fredrikson in the beginning of 2021.

From the AEC website: "

Mads Qvist Frederiksen comes from the position as senior advisor in the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI), where he had the responsibility for Arctic affairs. He knows the Arctic Economic Council well, both as a representative from Denmark in the AEC and as member of the AEC Investments and Infrastructure Working Group.

– My passion for the Arctic began with a voyage in 2005 when I sailed from Iceland to Greenland and then onto Canada on an expedition with Justin Trudeau. Since then I have been working with business development in all Arctic nations, says Mads Qvist Frederiksen."

AEC is an independent organization that facilitates Arctic business-to-business activities and responsible economic development through the sharing of best practices. AEC was created by the Arctic Council during the 2013-2015 Canadian chairmanship.
