“Entering the new position, Nicolai will play an even stronger part in scouting new exciting talents and projects and shaping an even sharper line and image for the company,” said the company in a statement.

Wendt said: “After so many years of working and travelling together, the teamwork with Nicolai has become an indispensable part of TrustNordisk’s DNA. He has become a natural sparring partner, and I am looking forward to working together even closer.’

Korsgaard added: “Over the last two decades, TrustNordisk has become such a big part of my life. I am so proud of looking back at the films that we have sold and worked on worldwide, and I am very excited to continue on this path, and reshaping the company with new initiatives to make it even more successful together with Susan and the rest of the team.”
