Inwido's Finnish business units Sydänpuu, Profin and Klas1 appoints new Managing Directors

Three of Inwido's Finnish business units have appointed new MD´s. Aki Lindgrén has been appointed MD of Klas1 and Ville Nevala as acting MD of Profin. The third appointment concerns Sydänpuu, whose new MD is Markus Palola.

In connection with Mikko Haapala leaving the MD assignments in Profin, Sydänpuu and Klas1, three internal recruitments are taking place for the MD posts. Both Aki Lindgren and Ville Nevala have solid sales and leadership experience from the business units they now take over the leadership in. In Sydänpuu, a subsidiary of Profin, Markus Palola is appointed MD. Markus Palola has been site manager for the business unit since May 2019, having previously been Project Manager at Inwido's business unit Pihla Group.

The former MD Mikko Haapala, who was involved in the Inwido acquisition of Profin 2018, continues as a board member in Profin and Sydänpuu, which safeguard valuable knowledge and experience in the development of the business units.

“We are very pleased to be able to internally recruit three new leaders for our Finnish business units. The recruitments provide a power boost and are examples of how Inwido actively works with the succession of leadership and to develop its companies”, says Henrik Hjalmarsson, President & CEO Inwido.
