Innofactor’s Board of Directors has appointed Janne Martola CFO for Innofactor Plc and Deputy to the CEO as of July 9, 2014. Since 2011 Martola has worked as Vice President responsible for Innofactor’s International Business and Acquisitions. In his new role, Martola, M.Sc. (Tech.), will continue as member of Innofactor’s Executive Board reporting to CEO Sami Ensio.
With this action, Innofactor streamlines its organization, increases the business focus of its financial management, and ensures the high level of its mergers and acquisitions competence also in the future. Innofactor will discontinue the role of a separate Vice President for International Business. Going forward, the Country Managers will report directly to the corporation’s CEO Sami Ensio. In the future, Martola will be responsible for mergers and acquisitions in addition to his CFO role. He will also act as Deputy to the CEO. Innofactor will immediately initiate the recruitment for a person to focus on mergers and acquisitions as well as international business and to strengthen the respective team under the CFO. With these arrangements, the number of Executive Board members will decrease from nine to eight.
”With this arrangement we are able to tighten Innofactor’s management and centralize our Executive Board operations. I believe that we will be able to focus more and more on strategic and business topics in the Executive Board. We will also be better equipped to ensure the continuity and scalability of mergers and acquisitions in the future,” says Innofactor’s CEO Sami Ensio. “Furthermore, Janne Martola is extremely well qualified to act as my deputy.”
”Innofactor’s CFO role is a wonderful opportunity for me,” says Janne Martola. “I believe that in my new role I can create even more value to Innofactor’s shareholders. My objective is to create a financial management function for Innofactor that will strongly support business and to build a strong mergers and acquisitions team with prerequisites to execute the growth targets outlined in our strategy.”
Innofactor’s former CFO Tiina Pulli will not continue at the service of the company. Innofactor thanks Pulli for her contribution.
