Annbritt is a principal based in Heidrick & Struggles' Copenhagen office. She handles senior-level executive search engagements across all functions of Financial and Professional Services in Scandinavia. Most often she is involved in search engagements within Digital Banking, Data Science, IT, Operations or Risk.

Prior to joining Heidrick & Struggles, Annbritt was Associate Partner at Amrop.

Annbritt has broad knowledge within the recruitment industry and started showing interest for the industry about 15 years ago, when she worked for one of the pioneers within internet recruitment, initially within business development and later as a Nordic Business Analyst. Ten years ago she partook in the launch of a listed international recruitment company on the Danish market where she was responsible for the Financial Services organization. After five successful years with continuous growth, she had a short stint working for a boutique executive search company before joining Amrop in 2013.

Annbritt’s interest for the Financial Services industry stems all the way back from her time at university, during which she worked at two different banks. Early on in her career she also worked for some years at the Stock Exchange, later acquired by Nasdaq.

For the past five years Annbritt has been a board member at Faroese Telecom.


Annbritt holds an M.Sc. in Finance & Accounting and a B.Sc. in Economics & Business Administration, both from Copenhagen Business School. She has also studied Business English in the US and completed an Executive Programme focusing on Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Singularity University in December 2017.
