Jorn P. Jensen is appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO), and a member of the Group Executive Management Team, as of December 1, 2022. Jorn has 27 years of experience as CFO, most recently at Dyson Ltd and earlier at Carlsberg A/S.

CFO Sakari Ahdekivi leaves Ahlstrom end of December to pursue new opportunities outside the company.

Hans Sohlström, President and CEO, says: “I thank Sakari for his valuable work during nine years as CFO of Ahlstrom. During this time Ahlstrom has more than tripled in size and transformed into a much stronger and more profitable company. Sakari’s contribution has been material to the success of Ahlstrom. I wish him all the best for his future endeavors.”

Hans continues: “Jorn brings with him an extensive international CFO experience for the continued transformation and profitable growth of Ahlstrom. I welcome Jorn to our Team.”
