Colleague Portrait: Jukka Raudasoja
Starting from August 15th Jukka Raudasoja has been nominated as our new Director of the Road Transportation Business Unit. He has been on the job for about a week now. In an interview Jukka was asked how it feels so far.
“It has been a positive welcoming and the work environment is good. The employees have been open about themselves. Telling me about their work tasks, the strengths and possibilities. At this point I’m confident that I’ll develop a good general impression of the business”, says Jukka. “I still have a lot to learn and want to get acquainted with the employees, operation methods and customers.” Jukka says that he has to learn about the business and what can be improved, but the first thing is to get a good overview of the company and the business. Once he is satisfied with the overview, possible improvements and needs can be considered.
The role as a Director for the Road Transportation Business Unit at Ahola Transport is new and implies responsibility for leading the Business Unit, as well as leading the strategic and operational development of the Road Transportation business unit, according to guidelines established by the Board and the Group Management team.
Jukka Raudasoja has earlier worked in different management assignments for example at Destia Oy. At Destia Oy he worked with operative and strategic leadership and with business development.
We are greatful to have Jukka in our organization and wish him good luck in his new challenging task.
