The Chief Investment Officer of Ilmarinen, Mikko Mursula, M. Sc. (Econ), 49, has been elected a Member of the Board of Directors at the General Meeting held on 17 March 2016.
Mikko Mursula has been working as the Chief Investment Officer of Ilmarinen since the spring of 2015. Before that Mursula worked as the CEO of FIM Oyj, Director of S-Bank, and for about ten years he worked in managerial investment-related positions at Ilmarinen.
Mikko Mursula finds this position of trust interesting because of VVO’s strong market position and the still growing demand for rental housing.
“As a company, VVO is in good shape and it has an excellent opportunity to respond to the growing demand for rental housing caused by urbanisation. Customers’ selection criteria, however, are constantly changing and promoting energy efficiency and minimising environmental load, for example, also have an effect on the operations of VVO Group. I believe that in the work of the Board of Directors, I will be able to utilise my extensive experience in managerial positions of a large real estate investor in these matters, among others”, says Mikko Mursula
“Living habits and needs are constantly in flux and VVO Group must be able to offer rental housing solutions that respond to demand also in the future. Good service and high client satisfaction have a central role. VVO Group has strong future prospects and every opportunity to stand out”, Mursula adds.
