Thomas Bo Petersen, Danish businessman in Hanoi, has for six years headed the company Mascot with 1700 employees. He built the company up from scratch together with the Danish parent company in Silkeborg. Yesterday, he received one of the finest signs of recognition any Danish entrepreneur can get, Prince Henrik’s Medal of Honour and the Diploma of the Danish Export Association.
Crown Prince Frederik presented the two awards to Thomas Bo Petersen on behalf of his father Prince Henrik with his personal congratulations.
“I am very pleased and proud to receive this recognition,” Thomas Bo Pedersen says.
“My thoughts go to the employees who have helped me build it all up. Not only did I receive Prince Henrik’s Medal of Honour – it was also handed to me by his son, Crown Prince Frederik. I am truly grateful for having received this award.”
