"We had many excellent candidates for the role. Massimo’s performance has been exceptional in UPM Raflatac impacting the success of the entire business, and I know him as an energising team leader and a person who delivers. I also believe that cross-business career paths are important for UPM’s future development. Massimo will lead a strong and well-working team in UPM Communication Papers which has had - and continues to have - an important role enabling UPM’s growth and innovations," says Jussi Pesonen.
