Meet the Consul General

Consul General Morten Siem Lynge

The Consulate General of Denmark in Houston, Texas, first opened its doors back in 2018 with a particular trade focus on energy, water, biogas, and life science. Morten Siem Lynge became the second Consul General in Houston when he was appointed Head of Mission in September 2020. As Consul General, Morten promotes Danish interests in Texas and holds the consular responsibility for Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.


Based in Houston, he also leads the Trade Council's efforts in energy in North America. The North American Energy team comprises 20 dedicated wind, biogas, and energy transition specialists who share knowledge and promote trade out of Danish representations in Houston, Silicon Valley, Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C. 


Before being appointed Consul General, Morten worked as a Special Advisor at the Danish Ministry of Finance, as a Consultant at Boston Consulting Group in Copenhagen, and as Director at Monitor Deloitte in the Middle East. Within the Danish Foreign Service, Morten has been Consul General and Head of Mission in Toronto, Canada, and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

"I'm extremely proud of being appointed Consul General here in Houston, Texas. The state alone would be the world's 9th largest economy if it were a country by itself. Texas is perhaps the most exciting U.S. state regarding business development and business growth within energy and life science. I'm very excited to part of this journey and to support our U.S. partners with world-class Danish know-how and solutions within energy, biogas, and life science."  - mORTEN SIEM LYNGE, consul general and head of energy
