Partner and Senior Advisor

Ole Mikkelsen

I’m utilizing my knowledge to assist national and international companies with their interests and reputation within a fragmented media landscape in Denmark. 

With a background as a journalist, editor, and communications manager, I possess the experience and necessary tools to assist various types of companies. 

Being the author of a book about Danske Bank’s former chief executive, Peter Straarup, and the host of nearly 100 podcast episodes on finance, I have acquired specialized skills in the financial and economic fields. 

Having spent a cumulative 10 years at the world’s largest news agency, Reuters, I have developed a strong sense of vision and professionalism. Banks, private equity, pension companies, asset managers, and listed companies are all familiar territories to me. 

During my seven-year tenure at Danmarks Nationalbank, I served as an advisor to top management and developed a podcast series on finance. Throughout all those years, I also acted as the media’s primary point of contact with the bank.
