Former Nokian boss appointed head of green tech firm
Immediately following the announcement of his departure from Nokian, Ari Lehtoranta has been unveiled as the new president and CEO of Caverion Corporation, a supplier of energy-efficient technical solutions for buildings, industries and infrastructure on whose board he has sat since 2013 (as chairman since 2015). He will assume the new position on January 1, 2017.
“I have been committed to developing Caverion on its board of directors,” Lehtoranta said, “and am now proud to take the helm in leading the company to the next phase. Caverion has every opportunity to become the industry leader; the company’s service portfolio and industry knowledge are great and it has made rapid progress in digitalisation. Next, we need to establish a leadership and organisational model and a business culture that support the service and project business in the best possible way. Closer cooperation with our customers is also a critical success factor. This is something I want to make happen together with the company’s 17,000 employees.”
