Tommi Karjalainen Appointed as Chief Operating Officer of Aurora

Aurora strengthened its team with the appointment of MSc (Eng.) Tommi Karjalainen as Chief Operating Officer as of November 2019. Tommi is a seasoned business development and industrial services professional and has management experience from several companies. As Chief Operating Officer, Tommi is responsible for supporting Kilpilahti and Tornio sites in meeting customer expectations and developing best practices. Tommi will also be engaged in Aurora’s growth efforts.

“I think Aurora is a great concept and I believe that the company’s comprehensive offering as an industrial infrastructure partner is scalable,” says Tommi. “I hope that with my experience, I can help the company grow, making Aurora an even more interesting partner for both existing and new customers!”

Getting to know Aurora

Tommi started his career at Aurora by visiting and getting to know his new colleagues in Espoo, Tornio and Kilpilahti Sites.  “I am very impressed with the knowledge and commitment of Aurora personnel. There seems to be  a straightforward and pragmatic way of doing things, which translates to high network availability.”

Future plans

 “Neste’s turnaround in spring 2020 will be an interesting and challenging effort, as will the potential expansion of Outokumpu Tornio mill. Both include a lot of grid maintenance and construction, testing and onsite coordination with our customer”, Tommi continues.

CEO Tony Lindroos is pleased of the appointment: “Aurora’s operations have grown strongly during recent years. Simultaneously while implementing and financing large and complex investment projects, we have developed operational practices and systems from scratch. It is great to get Tommi onboard to further develop Aurora’s business concept and to lead our operations. Tommi’s background is an interesting mix of industrial services and electricity networks, which will benefit both Aurora and our customers.”

Tommi will report to CEO Tony Lindroos.  We warmly welcome Tommi to the Aurora team!
