New Business Director

We were sad to say our goodbyes to our Business Director, Alja Kristensen, and we wish her the best of luck!

We recently hired a new Business Director and we would like for you to get to know here better.

"My name is Linda Charlotte Heiede Laursen, and I have recently moved to Atlanta due to my husband’s new job. My husband, Thomas Heiede Laursen, works for C P Kelco. Years ago, and due to Thomas’ jobs, we lived in Switzerland, England, and the US (MO) for about 9 years, but in 2004, we decided to return back home in order to add Danish culture to the upbringing of our three children. This time, however, we are in the US without our children who are all grown up and live in Denmark.

My educational background includes a number of master’s degrees in English & communication, English literature, and public management. In my professional career, I have mainly worked for educational institutions in Denmark, first as a lecturer involved in educational and pedagogical development projects, and during the latest 6 years as a manager and member of management teams at two different schools in the Aarhus area.

In the position as Business Director with the DACSE, I look forward to fulfilling the responsibilities mentioned in the job description, but I also look forward to assisting the board in developing new business areas. I hope that I will be able to contribute with experience and competence to enhance the position of DACSE in the Atlanta area."
