Fimpec Group’s new CEO to take the reins in September 2022
Jukka Nieminen will take over as Fimpec Group’s CEO 1. September 2022. The Group’s current CEO Antti Lukka will continue with the Group in a personnel development capacity. Both are committed to furthering Fimpec’s international growth.
The goal of the new CEO is to lead Fimpec Group in its next phase of global growth. Jukka Nieminen arrives at Fimpec from Beneq Group. Nieminen’s experience in globalisation and managing industrial growth companies is long and varied.
“I would like extend a warm welcome to Jukka, and I am delighted to continue our Group’s fantastic growth story together with him,” says Chairman of the Board Timo Hyvönen. “At the same time, I would like to thank Antti Lukka for his excellent work as our CEO. Under his leadership, Fimpec has grown and developed into a modern and international corporation that employs more than 350 people.”
The company has moved forward in its push for internationalisation, most recently by growing its foothold on the Baltic and Swedish markets, and future growth areas can be found for example in the energy transition.
“I am excited to get to continue this incredible growth story. I am looking forward to working in a company that is developing and focusing on global growth, with a skilled personnel and an excellent reputation among its customers,” says Jukka Nieminen.
Antti Lukka will continue part-time as the principal for Fimpec Academy. Fimpec Academy is a learning academy for the entire Fimpec personnel, which supports career paths and competence development through coaching and learning at work in collaboration with educational institutions, external coaching companies and customers. Lukka will provide more details about his new role and reveal his plans during the autumn.
Lukka and Nieminen agree that Fimpec’s key resource is its personnel.
“With Antti Lukka’s lengthy experience in the industry and insight into vocational competence needs, we are well placed to support our strategically aligned development work,” says Nieminen.
“I am excited about my new role and I hope to gain a new perspective of the entire organisation through this personnel development position. Our plans will take shape over the course of the autumn, and more information is forthcoming when they are completed,” says Lukka.
