Current head Jussi Vanhanen has decided to leave UPM after 18 years, to pursue personal interests in writing and to act as a management advisor at a leading consulting company.
“I have enjoyed over a decade with UPM Raflatac and the global labeling community, and will definitely miss it. At the same time, it is clear to me that it is time to renew myself and look at life and business from a different angle,” Vanhanen says. “I plan to complete a book, a novel, which I started writing some years ago. I know I will regret later if I do not take this step. I also feel comfortable leaving now, because I know I am leaving UPM Raflatac in great hands for the future.”
