Birgitte comes to us from a long career at Rockwool Industries, a Danish-based mineral wool and fire protection manufacturing company. She began her career as a fire researcher at the Danish National Fire Research institute (DBI) and has been a leader in the global fire research community for many years. Birgitte will provide leadership in our efforts to grow and strengthen our research network and better connect us to the global advances in research that will impact fire and electrical safety so that we can share that information with our stakeholders.
