The Danish-American Chamber of Commerce of Georgia has named a new board chairman and president.

Michael Jensen, a business development specialist who has lived in Atlanta for nearly five years, accepted both roles after Charlotte Nytoft stepped down at the organization’s last board meeting.

“I am honored to have been given the trust and commitment from the board of directors to lift the important assignment of leading the DACC, a beacon of Danish culture, business and unity,” Mr. Jensen said in a letter to members and sponsors posted on the chamber’s Web site.

Ms. Nytoft will remain on the chamber’s board.

Mr. Jensen is conducting a review of the organization’s finances, events, missions and volunteers to craft a strategy for the future. He will provide progress updates to stakeholders over the next three months, the letter said.

The Danish chamber recently hosted the fifth Danish Film Festival in Atlanta, which included four screenings at the High Museum of Art. On April 16, the chamber will celebrate the 70th birthday of Queen Margrethe II, who has ruled Denmark since 1972.
