NIKKB has welcomed a new member of staff, as Asger Torning has joined the institute as its new Communications Officer.
The new Communications Officer has previously worked with communication as Communications Consultant in Odense Sport & Event with communication for Odense Boldklub’s Superliga team (football) as his main focus area. Asger Torning held this position for 17 years, and it has given him a good deal of experience with a wealth of various types of communication tasks.
Syddansk Universitet is not unknown to the new Communications Officer. Asger Torning previously studied English at the Centre for English at SDU but when the exciting opportunity to work in OB arose, the offer was too tempting to decline. Now he is back in the buildings on Campusvej, enjoying the return and looking forward to new and challenging communication tasks.
Although he is no longer employed by OB, Asger Torning continues to be involved in the life of the club as assistant coach for OB's U11 girls’ team, and a large part of his spare time is spent in the club or in socializing with good friends. In addition to this, the new Communications Officer also enjoys reading a good book, whether it's fiction or non-fiction.
Asger Torning is approximately 8 months away from turning 53. He exercises his old bones by cycling to and from Campusvej and his home in central Odense.
