Func Food Group Oyj – New CFO
Published on April 6, 2018.
The CFO of Func Food Group Oyj, Tommi Virtanen, has decided to leave the company in order to pursue other career challenges. Tommi joined the company in February 2016 in the middle of turbulent times and has played a key role in stabilising the company and setting up a solid finance department. Furthermore, Tommi was the driving force behind the company´s IFRS conversion and subsequent bond listing process with Nasdaq Stockholm. Since that time, Tommi has overseen the setup of business systems and structures across all our markets and built a solid team in the process.
The search for Tommi´s successor was started some time ago and therefore we are in the fortunate situation of having a structured handover process.
It is my pleasure to announce Jani Partanen´s appointment as CFO, Func Food Group Oyj, starting May 28th. Jani joins Func Food from Silmäasema Oyj, a Finnish stock exchange-listed company in the optical retail and eye healthcare business, where he served as Business Controller in a Group role and as a member of the management team. Prior to Silmäasema, Jani has worked in business and finance control roles at Novartis and other consumer-oriented companies. Jani comes equipped with a strong background in finance leadership, management accounting and experience from both private equity-, public company- and IFRS-environments.
Tommi will remain in his current role until Jani has joined and they´ve handled the transition together, most likely until June 8th.
Tommi has played an invaluable role in the development of the company and he will be missed. I want to wish him the very best in his future endeavours.
