Mr Ari Kolehmainen, Project Manager at the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities (AFLRA), has been appointed FCG Finnish Consulting Group´s new Chief Executive Officer. The FCG Group is a subsidiary of AFLRA that provides training and consultancy services. The Board of the company has decided to consolidate the company´s position, particularly in the domestic market and among the present clientele. The present CEO, Mr Paul Paukku, has been relieved of his duties.
- There is considerable development potential within the company, a competent staff and good network relations. The owners are willing to promote the operations and the profitability of the company in the long term. Our objective is to strengthen the education and development activities in cooperation with the solid clientele. To list FCG on the stock exchange is not of current interest, says Mr Kari-Pekka Mäki-Lohiluoma, Chairman of the Board, and CEO of AFLRA.
Ari Kolehmainen, (59), Master of Administrative Sciences, has had many assignments within the AFLRA Group since 1984. In recent years he has e.g. served as CEO of Efeko, an FCG education and consulting company, in 2000-2009, and likewise as deputy CEO of the FCG Group in 2005-2009.
