Seppo Kuula new CEO of Enfo
The Board of Enfo Oyj has appointed Seppo Kuula new CEO of Enfo. Kuula will take up his position in the beginning of 2018. Kuula has been the CEO of the Finnish software integrator Siili Solutions Oyj since 2010, and before that, he has led business operations and sales both in publicly listed and private companies in Europe and the US. Seppo Kuula is M.Sc. (Tech, industrial engineering), eMBA (marketing) and Engineer (machine automation).
“I see a great opportunity in Enfo to build an integrated digital service company, which provides its clients support encompassing from business models of the digital age and modern service development to diverse platform solutions. Enfo has grown its expertise in Finland and Sweden through numerous acquisitions and now it is time to develop the common service offering and culture, targeting profitable organic growth,” says Seppo Kuula.
“Enfo enables its clients’ and employees’ success and growth, focusing on collaboration and expertise in the Nordic markets. Enfo is a reliable partner in the now, challenging its clients and experts to think beyond tomorrow. Seppo Kuula has the right background and personality to lead Enfo forward on the growth path. Arto Herranen has successfully driven the company forward and I want to thank Arto on behalf of the whole Board for his efforts,” says Anssi Lehikoinen, Chairman of the Board, Enfo Oyj.
Enfo’s current CEO Arto Herranen informed the Board in May 2017 that he will resign from the position as CEO in spring 2018 at the latest. At that point, the Board and Herranen agreed, that he would continue in the position until the Board had appointed a new CEO, after which he would become a member of the Board.
“I have been the CEO of Enfo for thirteen years. During this period, the company has changed completely from a regional tele company to a Nordic IT group. I feel that for my part this change journey is completed. For the future, Enfo needs new leadership and I wish Seppo Kuula success,” says Arto Herranen. Herranen will support Kuula in the management transition during the first quarter of 2018.
KPY Cooperative, owning 85% of Enfo’s shares, proposes that the Board convenes an Extraordinary General Meeting to appoint Arto Herranen member of the Board.
