Pertti Korhonen this week announced his resignation as chairman of the board of Ahlstrom Corp., Finland. Ahlstrom has gone through a major change this past year, and according to Korhonen, "now is the best time to change the chairman of the board to serve the best interests of Ahlstrom and its shareholders." Ahlstrom is advancing the implementation of its strategy to the next stage, a part of which was the appointment of a new CEO who started this past June.

"We would like to thank Pertti Korhonen for his outstanding contribution to Ahlstrom. Korhonen has served as chairman of the board of Ahlstrom since 2013, as vice chairman from 2011 to 2013, and as a board member from 2011. During his time on the board, Ahlstrom has gone through a considerable transformation. The most important milestones in the implementation of the strategy have been the divestment of the Home and Personal wipes business and the demerger of specialty papers, the Label, and Processing business. Korhonen has also led the process of selecting the new company management that will now concentrate on Ahlstrom's next development phases. We will continue the implementation of the long-term strategy and focus on the objectives set for the company," said Robin Ahlström, vice chairman of the board of Ahlstrom.
