“Hille Korhonen has had an important role in building Nokian Tyres: first as a member of the Board, and during the past three years as President and CEO. These past years have been characterized by an intensive investment phase, during which the company has built a factory in the US, as part of the target to double Nokian Tyres sales in North America. On behalf of the entire Board, I want to thank Hille for her leadership and contributions to the company”, says Hienonen.

"I am honored to be appointed to lead Nokian Tyres, which is such a great company with fantastic products, a valued brand and leading position in its home markets, and a lot of opportunities for development.
