Katrina Harjuhahto-Madetoja, M.Sc. (Econ.), has been invited to lead FCG Finnish Consulting Group Oy's training and consulting business area. She will start her new position in January 2011. Harjuhahto-Madetoja moves to FCG from the CEO position at SEFE, the Finnish Association of Business School Graduates.

- ”We are delighted that FCG is getting Harjuhahto-Madetoja. She has a long and varied experience in the operations and development of both private and public sector organizations. FCG works in close cooperation with municipalities and organizations close to them, such as organizing training events and consulting with the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities, and Katrina has strong networks and knowledge in these areas that are directly useful for our business," notes CEO Paul Paukku.

- “A familiar work environment and a company with strong expertise as a developer in changing public administration led me to take up this challenge. I perceive public administration development also as a matter of values in which, through consultancy, values related to sustainability and the well being of citizens can be supported,” Katrina Harjuhahto-Madetoja adds.
