To me close co-operation, understanding the needs of customers, creating sustainable products and value adding solutions to all our customers is a never-ending journey which we all are dedicated to,” Jääskeläinen says. “Kiilto’s vision to 2080 and beyond assures that the journey stays never-ending. I’m excited about spearheading a company I see as a true environmental leader.”

As a leader, Jääskeläinen puts strong emphasis on people, culture, and continuous improvement. “I am more than enthusiastic about my upcoming role and look forward to what we can achieve together.
