I am most proud of my fantastic colleagues, whom I know will take Liseberg to new heights
– Andreas Andersen
Andreas Andersen has left his role as Liseberg CEO to rejoin Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark, as its executive vice president.

Andersen, who joined Sweden's Liseberg in February 2011, leaves a lasting legacy, having overseen major changes at the Swedish theme park. During his seven years at the head of the operation, these have included new attractions such as the B&M-designed Valkyria steel-dive coaster and Helix, a steel launch coaster from Mack Rides.

Andersen has also been overseeing the park's €200m (US$238.8m, £178.8m) expansion, which will attempt to diversify its product offering to expand its operational season by adding a new indoor waterpark and hotel among other improvements. By 2020, the park will feature a new theatre, themed restaurant and will have its Kaninlandet (Rabbit Land) children's area renovated at a cost of €19.5m (US$22m, £16.8m).

"I am very proud of the Liseberg that I have been involved in managing and developing," said Andersen.

"But I am most proud of my fantastic colleagues, whom I know will take Liseberg to new heights."

In a statement, Liseberg confirmed that is board of directors will soon start the search for a new CEO.

"Andreas has done a fantastic job as CEO of Liseberg and he leaves a very well-run company," said Liseberg chair, Christer Holmgren.

"It's important for us to find the right person who can continue to lead Liseberg into the future".

Andersen previously operated as Tivoli's vice president between March 2001 and January 2008. From there he spent three years as an executive director for IAAPA before moving to Liseberg. In 2017, Andersen took over from Greg Hale as IAAPA's chair before handing over in November 2018 to Christian Rosenberg.
