Council

Peter Thomsen

Chairman of the DECC
(2019-2020)
Viru Õlu AS

Business Class member

I have been a member of DECC since the beginning in 2007, and have used DECC as a place to meet my good friends and at the same time meet new people and get knowledge from interesting seminars and events. Not so seldom I have been able to use my contacts from DECC in my business, either directly or helping others! 

I see the future for DECC as a place to meet socially and keeping Yourself up-to-date with current issues such as legislation – but also about issues You wouldn't normally be involved in or would have knowledge about. At the same time, DECC should be a place for business connections and relations will be developed, and place where members will feel that they are getting something from being member. In 2015, I am actively involved organizing the business and networking conference on agriculture, Nordic Open 2015.

 

During this first election time I have also been involved in FICE (Foreign Investors Council in Estonia) workgroup, with focus on education in Estonia. This work I will continue in the following year – now we have made the basic work, now we need to move forward. I will work for an active and relevant chamber in the following election time, creating value for our members – and get more members.

Livonian Wood OÜ
Business Class member

I am half Danish, half Italian, and an experienced, Estonian-speaking professional within the processed timber industry, having since 2001 developed a well established wholesale export network from Estonia to several European countries, based on quality, service and innovative wood-based products.

After having lived in Italy and Denmark, I permanently live in Estonia since 2006, when I started Livonian Wood OÜ, the company intermediating and trading in solid wooden furniture, semi-finished wooden products and components for the buiding industry. I have also started the joint-venture SBM FastWood OÜ, the official distributor in the Baltic Republics of Accoya, the world's leading high technology long life wood.

On the side, I am also the founder and owner of The Red Baron International OÜ, an authorized wine importer marketing a range of selected and exclusive Italian brands, together with wine accessories and cellar furnishings. I have experience in various different industries; however, his career focus has been continuously in international trading and management. I am a real European, with multiple citizenships and a multicultural background, speaking fluently several different languages.

As a member of the DECC, I want to represent and interact with all members equally and transparently, and work with the rest of the council in order to achieve a higher level of value for members, as part of the clear strategy. I am committed to refreshing the image and increasing the size of the organization, in a way that will make our organization stronger and more attractive for new members to join, and for the other organizations to cooperate with.

I have also been an elected Treasurer of the board of FICE (Foreign Investors' Council in Estonia) in 2014-15.

Terje Henriksen
Runway International OÜ
Business Class Member 

Since end 90's I been a member of the Danish Estonian Chamber of Commerce ("Club" as it was named that time) - for me it's always been a pleasure to join the team, as I strongly believe we actually have made a difference in helping & supporting connecting Danish & Estonian companies & interest together. 

As a member of the council, I would like to pursuit a greater corporation with Estonian & Danish organizations situated in Denmark - by this way, better to be able to link up our members with opportunities and partners not only from Estonia BUT also directly from Denmark. Last year we had a very successful trip to Denmark - businesses across the boarders was linked up, and this I what I like to encourage more to happen again.

I had through my job in Denmark lot of experience in how the mechanism is working about companies development, during many years I was sitting the company board and being reprehensive for my colleges there. I believe the chamber should be a devolvement place for new ideas that can bring the members closer to each other and get there business ideas out in a bigger forum. The social aspect in that we Danes are meeting with  our partners in the chamber is also very important and is the keystone in establishing a good network.

Thomas Hviid
Coolbet

Private member

I have been living in Estonia since 2008 and been a member of the chamber since 2011. At first I mostly joined the chamber to attend the excellent cultural and social activities the chamber offers in order to keep in touch with other Danes. From 2014 to 2017 I also experienced the business side of the chamber when I had my own company as a translator and freelance journalist and could use my membership to find new cooperation partners. 

Communication is my main specialty and I hope to raise the awareness of the work done in the chamber. And if businesses in Estonia would become more interested in Denmark, or vice versa, I will be happy too. 
Nowadays I work as poker manager for the gaming operator Coolbet.

 

 

Kaire Luuk

Private member

I grow up in Ida-Viru County, North-Eastern part of Estonia.

I have been quite a world traveler and I have had a wonderful opportunity to study, live and work in many countries like England, Canada, The United States of America, Netherlands and Denmark.

I have several years of experience in event management and tourism industry. Desire to learn more about event management took me to study at universities in Denmark.

I studied and lived 8 years in Aalborg, Northern Jutland and fell in love with Denmark.

Its culture, “Hygge”, togetherness in families, home traditions are just some of the things everyone can learn something good from.

Since I have moved back to Estonia and settled in Tallinn, I have been working as a License Manager in AS Eesti AGA /The Linde Group. In summer seasons I work as a Program Director/Tour leader in Scandinavia and Estonia for different international travel agencies.

I joined the The Danish Estonian Chamber of Commerce in 2016 and was elected to be a member of the Council in 2018. I am intensely interested in contributing my skills and experience to Danish Estonian Chamber of Commerce.

 

My personal wish is, that cultural relations between Denmark and Estonia will grow in terms of official and individual contacts considerably and I believe, that Danish Estonian Chamber of Commerce can contribute to that greatly.
