Glaston: CEO leaves the company, Antti Kaunonen takes over as interim CEO

Anders Dahlblom has submitted a resignation from his position as the CEO of Glaston Corporation on November 15, 2023 due to personal reasons. The Board will start the search for a new CEO immediately.

In connection with this, Glaston’s Board of Directors has on November 15, 2023 nominated Antti Kaunonen as the interim CEO. Antti Kaunonen will take this position immediately.

Kaunonen has served as a member of Glaston’s Board since 2018 and has extensive experience in senior leadership positions in industrial companies, most recently serving as the president of Kalmar, part of Cargotec (2015-2022).
