After seven successful years Kimmo Antonen will be leaving the position of the CEO. During Antonen’s CEO tenure KPMG Finland’s revenue has more than doubled and the number of employees has significantly grown. KPMG Oy Ab would like to collectively thank Kimmo for his notable contributions to the success of the company. 

— It has been a pleasure and an honor to see and experience the growth of the whole group. In Finland we’ve more than doubled our revenue during the past seven years and all our different services have evolved into leading practices, with over 1800 experts in Finland and Estonia serving our clients. The end of September, also marking the end of our current fiscal year as well as the end of the ongoing strategy period, is a good moment to change the leadership of the group, says Kimmo Antonen.

— I would like to thank our people, clients and collaboration partners for the past years and congratulate Pasi and the board for their excellent choice. I also look forward to the beginning of the new fiscal year, when Pasi and I get to share the past experiences with the goal to strengthen our position in the chosen market areas, Antonen continues.
