As a consequence of the structural and management changes announced by Suominen Corporation in 30 September 2013 and effective as of 1 January 2014, Mr Jean-Marie Becker, former Executive Vice President, Nonwovens, has left Suominen in January 2014 to pursue new challenges outside the company.
“I want to warmly thank Jean-Marie for his remarkable contribution for Suominen. His experience of nonwovens is decades-long and in many ways unique in kind, and his role was crucial in the successful integration of the businesses acquired from Ahlstrom in 2011. I find it very unfortunate that we could not find a solution for the continuation of his career within Suominen”, says Nina Kopola, President & CEO of Suominen Corporation.
