Reading time ( words)

Scanfil’s CEO, Petteri Jokitalo, has informed Scanfil plc’s Nomination and Compensation Committee about his plan to leave the company by the end of 2023. Petteri Jokitalo has worked as a CEO since 1 April 2013.

“Next year, I will have been working as Scanfil’s CEO for ten years, and at Scanfil for 15 years in total. It has been a great journey, and I know that I will especially miss the people I have worked with. However, ten years in the position of CEO is a relatively long time, and I have decided to start planning the next phase of my professional life”, says Petteri Jokitalo, the outgoing CEO.

“On behalf of the board, I want to thank Petteri for his strong contribution to the company in Scanfil’s management. The company has grown to a larger category in size, and the know-how has developed, enabling strong competitiveness. Petteri has built a motivated organization, ensuring a good starting point for the company to succeed in the future as well. His commitment to lead the company until the end of 2023 gives enough time to search for a successor”, says Harri Takanen, Chair of the Board of Directors.
