Huhtamaki has appointed Charles Héaulmé as president and CEO.
He takes over on April 26, 2019 after the company’s AGM from Jukka Moisio who steps down after a long and successful tenure.
“I want to thank Jukka Moisio warmly for his outstanding achievement at the helm of the company for over a decade. He lifted Huhtamaki from a very difficult position into a solid profitable growth trajectory and to a leading global food packaging company. Under Jukka Moisio’s lead the company has been able to create significant value for the shareholders,” says Pekka Ala-Pietilä, chairman of the board.
“I am thankful and proud of what we have achieved together with my colleagues during these years. This is a good moment to leave; the company is in a good shape and there are many great initiatives ongoing that will provide further growth opportunities,” Jukka Moisio comments.
Charles Héaulmé joins Huhtamaki from Tetra Pak, where his latest position has been vice president Europe and Central Asia since 2015. Prior to this he has worked in various business and finance leadership roles in Tetra Pak in different geographies since 1999. He has also held financial controlling roles in Bosch Braking Systems Division 1994-1999 and served as a senior auditor in KPMG during 1990-1993.
“I am truly honoured to be appointed to lead this great company into the future. Huhtamaki’s development, particularly through the last 10 years, has been impressive. I am committed to continuing this momentum to capture the significant opportunities that lie ahead. I look forward to working together with our team to deliver exceptional value to our customers and shareholders,” Charles said.
