Denmark gets new central bank governor
Denmark's new central bank governor is to be pension fund head Lars Rohde who will replace the outgoing bank chief Nils Bernstein on Feb. 1.
Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt described 58-year old Rohde Tuesday as a "very suitable" replacement for Bernstein, who is retiring from the post.
Denmark is a member of the European Union, but is not one of the 17 countries that use the euro. Denmark's Nationalbank typically follows ECB changes as part of a policy of trying to keep the krone pegged to the euro.
