Changes in the management team of Maintpartner Group Oy adds focus on development of MP INtelligence

Maintpartner Group Oy has together with its partners developed a “game-changer” within maintenance and process control, MP INtelligence®. This tool can be used in various segments of the market to improve productivity, security and profitability of Maintpartner’s existing and potential customers. To ensure the fastest possible implementation of this tool Johan Westermarck, now CEO of Maintpartner, will going forward concentrate full time on MP INtelligence and create a team dedicated to this tool.

Maintpartner Group Oy has at the same appointed Pasi Tolppanen (PhD) as its new CEO starting April 10th 2017. Pasi’s previous roles include management positions in the international consultancy and engineering company Pöyry, from where he has excellent references. The strict objective in this change is to further develop the position of Maintpartner Group to a leadership position in maintenance and operations in chosen segments.

“Maintpartner is committed to its customers, and we will continue to develop our operations from a customer-oriented point of view. We are dedicated to grow with our customers and collaborate closely to increase their productivity, also internationally. We have “game changing” tools and competencies to help our customers to improve their market position. There are new growth opportunities, particularly in the energy sector and the process industry,” says Peter Gossas, Chairman of the Maintpartner Board.

“During Johan’s period as CEO, the company has developed outstanding IT solutions that allow Maintpartner to improve both the efficiency of its own operations and the productivity of its customers. These digitalized optimization tools provide interesting options in virtually all business segments. It is very positive that Johan will be able to focus completely on these new tools while we recruit Pasi as Maintpartner’s new CEO. I offer him my warmest welcome,” says Jan Mattlin, Partner at CapMan Buyout.

“I am looking forward to leading the best team in this field. The maintenance sector is undergoing a drastic change, and Maintpartner plays an important role in this development, redefining its own operations and the sector at large through IoT (Internet of Things) tools and AI (Artificial Intelligence). Our interest is to help our customers to increase utilization and total productivity”, says Pasi Tolppanen, new CEO of Maintpartner.

Equity funds managed by CapMan own approximately 84 per cent of the shares of Maintpartner.
