I am pleased to announce that Jerker Hartwall has been appointed CEO for K.Hartwall as per 7.9.2017, says Risto Pyykönen, Chairman of the Board.
Jerker has been part of the K.Hartwall company for the past 23 years. Starting from the factory floor, he has been later working in different positions including Head of Production, VP Sales & Marketing in North America and most recently Head of Product Development.
