Esa Viitamäki (Bachelor of Science, born in 1958) has been appointed as Itella's CIO. He will be transferred from LähiTapiola where he worked as CIO.
Viitamäki has 30 years of experience in various consulting and management positions within the ICT industry. Before LähiTapiola, he has worked for example at Tieto and WM-data.
Viitamäki will also be a member of Itella's Management Board.
- Currently, Itella ICT is facing major changes as we are renewing our ICT operating model and working on a significant outsourcing project. I believe that Esa's extensive experience in ICT change processes, reorganization and outsourcing projects in particular, will help us to successfully complete the changes required, says Jukka Rosenberg, Senior Vice President of Itella Mail Communications.
- Itella is in an interesting situation characterized by the challenges presented by the decrease in traditional mail and significant opportunities brought by an increase in electronic trading, for which the Itella management has ambitious objectives, Viitamäki says. The transition of Itella ICT from a service producer into supervising other ICT service production and producers and becoming a more productive business partner is a major change, and I believe that I have something to offer the company in this respect.
Viitamäki will start in his new position on August 12, 2013.
