Leadership Transition at Glaston Corporation: Anders Dahlblom Steps Down, Antti Kaunonen Named Interim CEO
In a recent development, Anders Dahlblom has tendered his resignation from the role of CEO at Glaston Corporation, effective November 15, 2023, citing personal reasons. This decision has prompted the Board of Directors to initiate an immediate search for a new CEO to lead the company into its next chapter.
Antti Kaunonen Takes the Helm as Interim CEO
Simultaneously, Glaston’s Board of Directors, on November 15, 2023, announced the nomination of Antti Kaunonen as the interim CEO. Kaunonen, a seasoned leader, has been an integral part of Glaston’s Board since 2018. His extensive background in senior leadership roles within industrial companies, notably as the president of Kalmar, part of Cargotec (2015-2022), positions him well for this interim role.
Smooth Transition and Board Reshuffling
While Dahlblom extends support to the interim CEO during this transitional period, Glaston reassures stakeholders that its strategy, business operations, and management will proceed seamlessly without disruptions. Kaunonen, though stepping down from the Board’s People and Remuneration Committee, will continue his role on the Board.
Acknowledging Dedication and Progress
Veli-Matti Reinikkala, Chair of the Board, expressed gratitude on behalf of the entire Board for Dahlblom’s unwavering dedication in implementing Glaston’s 2021-2025 strategy. The company acknowledges Dahlblom’s instrumental role in consistently advancing the strategy and enhancing overall performance.
Impact on Scheduled Events
In light of the CEO’s resignation, Glaston’s Capital Markets Day, initially slated for November 21, 2023, is being rescheduled. The new date for this significant event will be announced in due course.
As Glaston navigates this transition, the company remains committed to its strategic goals and looks forward to the continued support of its stakeholders.
