Anne Pirilä appointed as Caruna’s Head of Communications and Public Affairs
Anne Pirilä has been appointed as Head of Communications and Public Affairs and member of the management team for the electricity distribution company Caruna as from 5 February 2018. Pirilä, who holds a Master’s degree in Social Sciences, will transfer to Caruna from lobbying organisation Finnish Forest Industry Federation where she has been the Head of Communications since 2011. Previously, she has gained experience as the Head of Communications and Investor Relations at Rautaruukki and Ahlstrom.
“It is great to welcome Anne Pirilä to Caruna’s team. Her considerable and diverse experience of communications and interest representation will bring us the skills and energy which Caruna needs while we continue to renew the way we work in a changing operating environment,” said Caruna’s CEO Tomi Yli-Kyyny.
“The operating environment and the operating models are undergoing a transformation in the energy sector. Caruna seeks to actively contribute to the development and growth the sector is currently experiencing. That is why we also wish to step up our communications and dialogue with our customers and stakeholders,” said the new Head of Communications and Public Affairs Anne Pirilä.
