Jens was a very well-respected and competent chairman of the Foundation, where he spearheaded a more professionalized approach to the active ownership of the Grundfos Group as well as its philanthropic activities and investments.

Jens Maaløe was an accommodating listener who always offered a qualified opinion. He held the flag of integrity high, and with unique insights as well as an astonishing eye for society, technology and ethics he led the Foundation’s work to benefit society and Grundfos.

Honor be the memory of Jens Maaløe.

Board members, management and employees of the Grundfos Foundation
