Carla Sands, the chairman and CEO of the Brentwood- based investment firm Vintage Capital Group, was appointed as U.S. ambassador to Denmark by President Donald Trump Thursday.

Sands became the firm’s chairman and CEO following her husband Fred’s death in October 2015. She is a member of Pepperdine University’s board and has also served on boards of organizations supporting the arts and culture.

Like all ambassadorial appointments, Sands’ nomination is subject to Senate confirmation.
