Meet The Consul General

Consul General Jacob Vind

In 2018 Consul Vind established the Consulate General in Houston and started his official assignment as Consul General and Head of the Water Advisory. Prior to his posting in the Lone Star State, Consul Vind served as Head of the Water Advisory at the Danish Innovation Center in Silicon Valley. Prior to joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Consul Vind worked in the private sector as a business developer, fundraiser & management consultant. 

"I moved to Texas as a part of a very intriguing greenfield assignment of building the renewed Danish presence here in Texas. It was an acknowledgement of the strong bonds between Denmark and the U.S. and the increasing importance of this rapidly growing region. 

Experiencing the dynamic business environment, progressive thinking and openness of Texans at all levels is an amazing experience and something both Texas and Denmark benefits greatly from".

Consul Vind holds a Master degree in Information Studies from Aarhus University, and a leadership program in Breakthrough Leadership from Harvard Business School.
