Kari Aalto, M. Sc., has been appointed President of Maintpartner’s project, installation and engineering business in Finland starting 11 June. He will transfer to Maintpartner from Pöyry where he serves as Vice President, Construction & Project Management of the Industry Business Group. Before that he has worked, for example, at Pöyry as the Regional Director of local industrial services in Southern Finland.
In this connection, the current Business Line President Markku Leinonen will leave the company. As of 1 May and until Kari takes over, Mika Riekkola, Managing Director of Maintpartner Oy and Maintpartner Expert Services Oy, is the acting President of the Business Line.
"Markku has done a good job in developing the project, installation and engineering services, and I want to thank him for his contribution to the business unification," says Pasi Tolppanen, CEO of Maintpartner Group. "I have known Kari Aalto, the new leader, for a long time; he has a strong background in industry and project management, which will certainly be reflected positively on the further development of the business," Tolppanen continues.
Maintpartner's project, installation and engineering services offer a wide range of expertise to complement daily maintenance of plants in a flexible way. It employs some 410 people in Finland.
