Lego A/S, Europe’s biggest toymaker, said it has elected Jan Nielsen, a partner at Blackstone Group LP (BX:US), for its board.
Lego picked Nielsen, 38, due to his experience with doing business in Asia, where the toymaker seeks to boost sales, the Billund, Denmark-based company said today in a statement on its website. Nielsen will replace Torben Ballegaard Soerensen, who didn’t run for re-election, Lego said.
