Consultancy Copenhagen Economics has hired Søren Andersen as a consultant in its competition team.
Andersen spent seven years at the authority
Andersen, 34, joins from Denmark’s Competition and Consumer Authority, where he worked from 2004 until 2011. He began as a case handler in the division dealing with energy, transport, telecoms and postal services, and then spent four years as a special adviser to the chief competition economist.
“I have known about Copenhagen Economics for a number of years from my position at the authority, and I have been very impressed by the quality and focus of their work,” Andersen tells GCR. “I am pleased to join Copenhagen Economics and I hope to contribute to a strong continued effort to provide sound economic advice on competition matters.”
Andersen has particular expertise in the energy and postal services markets. He has worked on a number of cases involving postal incumbent Post Danmark, and an excessive pricing case regarding Energi E2.
Claus Kastberg Nielsen, managing director at Copenhagen Economics, says: “We are extremely delighted that Søren decided to further his career at Copenhagen Economics. His arrival significantly strengthens the Danish arm of our competition services, and it also allows us to pursue clients in other parts of Europe with a large and very talented team of competition economists.”
Copenhagen Economics now has 15 economists in its competition division"
