CFO Suvi Kupiainen is leaving Vapo to take a career break
Vapo Oy Chief Financial Officer Suvi Kupiainen is leaving her position on her own initiative. Antti Koivula, M.Sc. (Econ), has been appointed as interim CFO to replace Kupiainen. He will take up the post on 15 January 2018. Koivula has previously worked as the Chief Financial Officer of GS Hydro, Rudus Group and Prysmian Group, among others. According to Vapo Oy CEO Vesa Tempakka, Suvi Kupiainen’s departure from the company is entirely a personal decision. “While I’m saddened by her decision, I understand it and I’m very grateful to her for her valuable contribution to the company, first as Business Controller at Vapo Timber Oy and then, from 2014, as the Chief Financial Officer of Vapo Oy. I’m also pleased that Suvi has agreed to stay with the company until the end of February to ensure the smooth transfer of her duties to Antti,” Tempakka says.
