Skangas said it has named Kimmo Rahkamo as the company’s new CEO, effective May 15.
Rahkamo, who has been a member of the Skangas board of directors since 2014, has served as the managing director of Fenniarail since 2010.
He has also held several senior positions at Neste, including executive vice president at Neste Oil, and vice president for supply and oil refining at Fortum.
The current CEO Tor Morten Osmundsen will continue in his role until May 15, 2017, and ensure a smooth handover to Rahkamo.
Commenting on his appointment, Rahkamo noted that with LNG’s growth potential in the Baltic Sea region’s industry, maritime transport, and heavy-duty road transport sectors, he aims to lead the company’s efforts to respond to the needs of a growing market.
Finnish state-owned Gasum owns a 51 percent stake in Skangas with the remaining 49 percent being held by the Norwegian company Lyse.
