Jaana Tuominen leaves the position as CEO for Paulig Group

After nine years as the CEO Jaana Tuominen has announced that she will leave Paulig Group to become President and CEO of Fiskars Corporation. 

During Jaana Tuominen’s leadership, Paulig Group has strengthened its position as an international company with several, strong brands in the portfolio. At the same time, the group has developed into an increasingly stable and profitable business with four divisions led by skilled leaders. 

Jaana Tuominen has also set a strong focus on the corporate culture, which enables a strong and good foundation for the company’s future success.
