Mika Sutinen Appointed as the New Chairperson for Business Forum Group

Business Forum Group’s shareholders nominated Mika Sutinen as a board of directors member and on Monday, 20th of June, the board appointed him as the chairperson from within.

Mika Sutinen is a rewarded entrepreneur and leader. Many know him as the former CEO of Musti Group, a leading pet supply store chain in Finland. From 2010 until 2017 he led the company through a successful change and growth period. Currently, Mika is the industrial partner at Vaaka Partners and additionally serves as a member of the board or as the chairperson in various companies such as Luhta, Reaktor, Framery, and Ellun Kanat.

While we at Business Forum Group welcome Mika as the new chairperson, we continue to mourn the passing of our previous chairperson Mika Mäkeläinen. He had a lasting impact on us and our company.

Hans-Peter Siefen, co-founder of Business Forum Group: “We are honored and privileged that Mika responded positively to our invitation for him to join our board. His experience in growing and internationalizing businesses – as well from leading boards – is of great value to us. Mika is also a very warm-hearted and purpose-driven person.”

Mika Sutinen, new chairperson of Business Forum Group: “I’m honored to be trusted by the Business Forum Group owners and the board to fill this position. I will aim at carrying out the responsibilities of a chairperson with similar passion, creativity, and dedication as my predecessor.”

Business Forum Group is the parent company of Nordic Business Forum, Oslo Business Forum, and DenkProducties, which organizes Amsterdam Business Forum.
