Gottlieb Paludan Architects completes new management team


Mette Lyng Hansen joins Gottlieb Paludan Architects as its new CEO on 14 June 2021. Her appointment completes the generational change of management which started towards the end of 2020, and Mette now heads the new management team of one of Denmark’s oldest architectural companies.

Mette Lyng Hansen comes from C.F. Møller – another Danish architectural company rich in traditions – where she held various managerial positions over the past eleven years, most recently as Head of the company’s Copenhagen office,and at Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Mette completes the newly formed management constellation.  

With respect for the company’s history, Gottlieb Paludan Architects has undergone a generational change of management which supports the company’s strategic ambitions and international growth targets. The management team now comprises CEO Mette Lyng Hansen, the two Creative Directors,Tine Kjærulff Bay and Thomas Bonde-Hansen, as well as COO Clement Bue Maali.

Thus, the new management team includes both existing key employees who have played a major role in shaping the company over many years and new faces who have leadership skills and experience from elsewhere in the industry. The new management team is therefore well equipped to balance continuity and renewal on the path into a new era with an even greater focus on international projects.

Gottlieb Paludan Architects is developing rapidly, enjoying financial growth and a continual flow of projects, and has appointed many new employees over the past year. Most recently, we published our 2020 accounts showing excellent results, not least on earnings. On this basis, the company has decided to intensify the development of a number of business areas with a new market organisation. The new management will ensure continued and continuous growth, as well as strengthen and professionalise the company’s strategic development.
