Katariina Kataja (MSc. Econ.) has been appointed Purmo Group’s Head of Investor Relations as of 5 September 2022. She will be based in Helsinki, Finland and report to Erik Hedin, CFO.

Erik Hedin, CFO of Purmo Group commented: “Purmo Group has undergone a tremendous shift in a very short time, both in terms of financial performance and to ensure compliance with the requirements of a listed company and to strengthen relations with our existing shareholders and build new ones. The historic stock exchange listing in January 2022 on Nasdaq Helsinki was an instrumental part of our growth strategy. We welcome Katariina to the Group. Along with her experience and enthusiasm for the role, she will lead the next phase of our journey to inform financial markets about our journey to become the leading provider of sustainable indoor climate comfort solutions. We would also like to thank Josefina Tallqvist for her invaluable support as Interim IRO for Purmo Group during the last 12 months.”

I believe that several trends in the market environment, including sustainable ways of using energy, are favourable for the continued growth of Purmo Group. Therefore, I see a great opportunity to strengthen the interaction with the capital markets together with the top management and take the next level in Investor Relations.”
