HECA Nuuk A/S is headed by managing director Nicolai J Nissen, who also owns 66% of the company. As CEO, Nicolai J Nissen is one of a kind and at times a bit controversial with an unusual CV.

Nicolai started his career as a radio host and was employed by Denmark’s Radio in Holstebro as a teenager before moving on to Radio Mercur at Frederiksberg. He came of age at the Copenhagen theatre called Eventyrteatret. Subsequently, he was employed by the Modern Times Group, the company behind TV3 and a number of commercial radio and TV stations at home and abroad to name but a few.

In 1998, Nicolai moved to Greenland. Here, he was marketing manager at the Sermitsiaq.AG media outlet for more than a decade. Moreover, he has worked for various companies in Greenland with projects, daily running and business development as his fields of responsibility within the hotel, restaurant, tourist, entertainment, investment and media industries.

In Denmark, Nicolai was the event manager at LEGOLAND and the principal of the LEGOLAND Show Academy. Moreover, he has worked on a number of exciting assignments within the entertainment industry for, for instance, MBO, which was the largest Danish music and record label at that time.

Nicolai’s CV also counts a stint as marketing manager at House of Music in Aalborg, and on several occasions he has hosted events in both Denmark and Greenland with members of the Danish Royal Family on the guest list; most recently at the opening of House of Music and the Crown Prince Couple’s Awards Show in 2015, respectively.
