Logset’s finance and administration director Ron Back has been elected as the company’s CEO from the beginning of next year. When the current CEO retires, the transition is a natural step in the company’s development.

Ron Back (40) has worked as Logset’s finance and administration director since 2019. Previously, he has worked as CEO of VAMP at Schneider Electric, among other things.

– Now the management team is starting to come together. At the helm is a competent and youthful team, Pascal Rety was appointed as deputy CEO at the same time. Kari Mikkilä was invited from retirement to develop the company at the beginning of the year, and the man did exactly what was ordered. Now is the right time to move on, and we thank Kari for what has passed, comments chairman of the board Tapio Nikkanen.

– Despite the extraordinary times, we have been able to develop Logset’s business. We are in a good market position to answer, for example, the environmental issues of the forest industry. We look to the future with a positive mind, despite the world situation, Ron Back commented.
