Sari Rämö appointed Kekkilä’s new CEO

Rämö is currently the Managing Director of DS Smith’s Finnish operations. Previously, Rämö has served in financial management positions at companies including DS Smith Finland (formerly SCA Packaging) and Upofloor Oy. Petri Alava, M.Sc. (Tech), will stay on as Kekkilä’s CEO until the change of office takes effect, and will continue to support Sari Rämö as necessary thereafter in the role of special advisor to ensure a smooth transition.

Tomi Yli-Kyyny, Chairman of the Board of Directors: “The Board of Directors of Kekkilä warmly welcomes Sari Rämö to the company to continue the development of its operations. Sari has built an impressive career in a number of key executive and expert positions in industry. As the Managing Director in charge of DS Smith’s Finnish operations, she has led an extensive change process and profitable business operations for many years. I am convinced that Sari’s background and personality will give new impetus to Kekkilä’s business development. I am also confident that she will quickly earn the trust of Kekkilä’s personnel and customers. The Board wishes her success in her new position.”
