Aki Kuusilehto has been appointed CEO of Halti starting from 10th August 2020. Kuusilehto (48) has a long and versatile experience in sporting goods business. Kuusilehto joined Halti from Patrol Oy Ab where he worked over 20 years leading the sales and marketing teams - and steering the company as CEO for the past 1,5 years.
“Halti has clearly strengthened its position in the domestic market over the past years. The brand is known, it focuses on important sustainability issues, and the product range has become commercially successful. Outdoor activities are hugely trending at the moment which gives us great opportunities to develop our business and further strengthen our position in Finland. For bigger growth we need to set our eyes abroad. In the future, Halti wants to be an international Nordic Premium brand. With professional staff, great customer relationships, innovative products and a strong Finnish ownership we will build a successful future”, says Kuusilehto.
“I am very pleased that Aki joined us as our CEO. He has a long and valuable experience in the field, and we are confident that Halti will keep growing under his leadership”, says Robert Ingman, Halti’s Chairman of The Board.
