Kuopio Health’s team will be strengthened when Kimmo Solehmainen (D.Sc.) starts in the role of development manager in November. Kimmo has diverse expertise in R&D, sales and marketing, quality development, project activities in various roles, and management.

Kimmo will move to Kuopio Health from Oplatek Group Ltd, where he has served as a Sales Director, responsible for international sales development, marketing, and R&D.

“I hope that we will achieve extensive cooperation for the benefit of the health, wellbeing, and nutrition sector.
