DONG Energy has appointed two new executive vice presidents (EVPs): Samuel Leupold has been named EVP of the company's Wind Power business area, and Morten Hultberg Buchgreitz has been appointed EVP of the company's Energy Markets business unit.

Leupold will assume the position from Henrik Poulsen, who, since his appointment as CEO of DONG Energy, has also served as EVP of the company's Wind Power division.

Hultberg Buchgreitz has also been filling the role of acting EVP of wind power since March. He will assume his new post on March 4, 2013.

Carsten Krogsgaard Thomsen, group chief financial officer, will also be taking on the role of EVP of Energy Markets on a temporary basis from now until March 4.
