Mette Fredsted

Position: Business Unit Manager at Coloplast
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) - M.Sc. Chemical Engineering

Mette has 15+ years of experience within the FMCG and MedTech industry – in global as well as affiliates roles. Her career has revolved around combining engineering with expertise in strategic marketing and sales management, working with product development, marketing, and sales, and in recent years with a specific focus on strategies, commercial performance & development. Lastly, she has transitioned into a management role in a Nordic/Benelux business unit with P&L responsibility.


Mette is motivated by leading, facilitating, and coaching teams to success. Today, she mentors profiles from different countries as well as graduate programs in her current company and takes great joy in following their development and providing sparring and personal experiences. She is impressed with the professionalism and ambitions among her current mentees and is inspired by their drive. It gives her a different perspective on her professional work. Mette would prefer helping a mentee that is self-reflected and expects the mentee to own the agenda to which she can provide sparring.
