LEGO CFO John Goodwin to leave in June 2017

"There is no doubt that John has changed the LEGO Group and that the LEGO Group has changed him," said CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp.

LEGO chief financial officer John Goodwin will leave the company on June 30th, 2017.

Goodwin joined the LEGO Group in September 2012 as CFO and at the same time took up the responsibility for the Business Enabling area which includes IT, Legal, Procurement, Business Services and Corporate Affairs.

“The last four years have been wonderful from my professional career perspective," said Goodwin.

"I have a deep passion for the LEGO brand, company, my peers and the organisation, so it has not been an easy decision. However, I find that now is the right time to announce my intention to leave next year to pursue the next items on my career journey, particularly my focus on charitable causes.”

LEGO CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp added: “I want to thank John for his great contribution to the LEGO Group during the past four years. Through his strong strategic mindset and relentless focus on executional excellence, John has been a key enabler for us in managing the incredible growth we have experienced over the past years. There is no doubt that John has changed the LEGO Group and that the LEGO Group has changed him.”
