“During my career, I have accumulated insight and experience in a wide range of different activities in LocalTapiola’s Group. I’m convinced that this will help me invest in one focus of the group’s strategy, i.e. the economy along with the other actors in the group. I am pleased and honoured that my long-term commitment to the LocalTapiola Group will be rewarded and get to deepen cooperation with top professionals. I will also continue the close collaboration I have started between financial companies and group operations”, says Samu Anttila, the future CEO of Asset Management.
