Appointment at Finavia: Ulla Lettijeff appointed director of Helsinki Airport

Ulla Lettijeff (M.Sc. Eng.) has been appointed new director of Helsinki Airport and a member of Finavia’s Executive Group. She will start in her new position on 6 February 2020.

Ulla Lettijeff has had a long career at Fiskars Group, working in different managerial positions, most recently leading the Living business unit. Before Fiskars Group, Lettijeff worked in several positions at Nokia, for example, as the director of Nokia Networks’s Espoo plant. She has also participated in international investment projects.

“Lettijeff has solid expertise in leading international business operations, and she has a strong vision of how to develop service experiences of corporate customers and consumers. I believe that, under Lettijeffs leadership, we can strengthen the international position of Helsinki Airport even further and finish our massive investment programme, says Kimmo Mäki, Finavia’s CEO.

“It is a wonderful opportunity to be part of the development of one of the best airports in Europe and to continue the modernisation of Helsinki Airport and the expansion of its service range. I cannot wait to start working together with my team and our partners in further developing the exceptional travel experience our airport provides and to make air travel even smoother,” Lettijeff says.

Vice president Heikki Koski is the acting director of Helsinki Airport and a temporary member of the Executive Group until 5 February 2020.
