Novo CEO is on the hunt for future growth: "The pressure is bigger than ever"

Lars Fruergaard Jørgensen and the rest of Novo Nordisk are starting to plan for the future, when the firm's crucial patents have expired. This is a big task that requires a lot of effort, the CEO says.
At the turn of the year, Lars Fruergaard Jørgensen will have been the CEO of Novo Nordisk for the past five years. He took over the role on Jan. 1, 2017, after the firm's former long-standing CEO Lars Rebien Sørensen. "The five years have just flown by. Time has gone extreme fast," says Fruergaard Jørgensen. | Photo: Stine Bidstrup/ERH
