COPENHAGEN & LONDON – Logpoint is announcing that Gitte Hemmingsen has joined the company as SVP People & Culture. Hemmingsen will be responsible for overseeing and supporting an engaged and competent workforce and attracting key cybersecurity talent as Logpoint grows. She will join the executive management team and report to the company’s newly appointed CEO, Mikkel Drucker.

“I’m excited that Gitte is joining Logpoint. She has a strong set of values and is an experienced People and HR leader with impressive results from both large organizations, startups, and scaleups,” says Mikkel Drucker, Logpoint CEO. “A value-driven and healthy organization with psychological safety, strong sense of belongingness, and feedback culture is important to support our journey to become a European cybersecurity powerhouse. Gitte’s experiences and subject knowledge are a perfect fit because she can navigate working between strategic and operational levels effectively.”

Hemmingsen has more than 20 years of experience in HR and People & Culture and notable accomplishments in talent acquisition, scaling businesses, and developing People & Culture strategies. She joins Logpoint after two years as Director of People & Culture at Liewood, a children’s design and lifestyle brand that has seen high growth.

Before that, she spent six years at the founder-led SaaS company Siteimprove as Vice President of Global HR. There, she spearheaded the substantial onboarding of new employees and built a strong culture and HR function from the ground up to support significant growth towards the completion of the successful acquisition by Nordic Capital. Previously, she has held leadership and consulting positions within HR at PwC, Alecto-Cornerstone, and Moment.

“I have a special passion for scaleups and technology and thrive in the cross-field between creating a healthy organization and supporting business results,” says Hemmingsen, Logpoint SVP People & Culture. “As a cybersecurity vendor, Logpoint can help European organizations defend against cyberattacks that impact society extensively today. Logpoint also aims to be recognized as a great place to work in Europe and to create a strong talent hub. With that comes enormous potential, which my experience is well-geared towards, and I’m delighted to join Logpoint at this stage in its journey.”
