Jarmo Kuikka succeeds in his post Mr Kari Sorjonen, who served as Tasowheel Group CEO for nearly 16 years and will continue to serve the company as Chairman of the Board.
The post became open for applications in early 2016. Tasowheel received a total of 98 applications, out of which roughly a dozen candidates were seriously considered.
Eventually, Kuikka stood out thanks to his extensive experience both in Tasowheel’s native Finland and internationally. In the search criteria, there was a particular emphasis on experience in international business and sales.
Under the helm of Kuikka, Tasowheel aims to speed up its business and grow with an annual rate of approximately 10%. Most of the growth is expected to be achieved through increasing exports.
Established in 1979, Tasowheel designs, manufactures and supplies products, assemblies and support services for diverse power and movement transmission needs.
Headquartered in Tampere, Finland, the group comprises three business units: Tasowheel Gears, Tasowheel Systems, and Tasowheel Tikka. In 2016, the group’s total turnover was roughly €18 million.
