Eezy makes changes to its management team

Eezy Plc is renewing its management model and streamlining its organisational structure. Eezy has decided to focus its operations on two business units: Staffing Services and Professional Services. The purpose of the change is to simplify the management model and boost operative decision-making processes.

The Staffing Services unit will cover the staff leasing operations, including franchise operations. Furthermore, the unit will also be in charge of the self-employment services. The Professional Services unit will cover research, coaching, consulting and recruiting services.

The Group’s new management team

The Group’s new management team:

  • Sami Asikainen, CEO
  • Hannu Nyman, CFO
  • Tomi Laaksola, Director, Staffing Services
  • Pasi Papunen, Director, Professional Services (from 21 September 2020)
  • Hanna Lehto, Director, Communications and Marketing

Pasi Papunen has been appointed director of the Professional Services unit and member of the Group’s management team. Papunen has previously acted as the Chair of the Board for Promotive Group, starting in 2013. Papunen has also worked as Vice President (Services and Development & OHC) at Suomen Terveystalo Oy from 2011 to 2014, CEO at Perfecto from 2004 to 2011, and as a Managing Partner at BNL Euro RSCG from 1994 to 2004. Papunen’s appointment will promote Eezy’s competence in managing and developing professional services for working life.

Jani Suominen, Director of Entrepreneur Services, will leave the Group’s management team and will report to Tomi Laaksola. Suominen will be in charge of franchise operations, operations in Sweden, outsourcing operations and self-employment services.

Laura Santasalo, Director of Organisational Development and Recruitment, will leave the Group.

“We are right on schedule in building the new Eezy, and we’ve achieved considerable synergy in bringing operations and information systems together. Our new management team will help us dismantle some matrixes and bring decision-making closer to our business operations. This enables us to ensure profitable growth across our business units.

Together with our experienced executives and our skilled staff, we are ready to make working life dreams come true and become the most significant operator in the Finnish working life,” says Eezy’s CEO Sami Asikainen.
