Kempower grows by going global and adding new talent

Kempower, the Finnish forerunner of electrical vehicle (EV) charging, adds new talent to its ranks. The company continues to fight against the growth of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and for electric vehicles with two new reinforcements: Sanna Otava, a long-time business development professional, and Tommi Liuska, the virtuoso of international growth.

Kempower adds a new Operations department, with Director Sanna Otava at the helm.

– We’ll focus on perfecting the entire production chain from order to delivery. The modular build of our chargers is our cornerstone, Otava explains.

As Kempower seeks global growth, the new department will ensure that Kempower has all the means necessary in order to be able to respond to growing interest and new international markets. These ventures into global business will be spearheaded by Kempower’s new Business Development Director Tommi Liuska.

Now is an excellent time for us to grow our international agent and distributor network. Besides our home market in Europe there are plenty of growth opportunities overseas that we need to exploit,.

Hands-on work for a good cause

Both Otava and Liuska share a passion for electrifying the world and are already familiar with the EV industry. Otava has a ten-year history of working with growth initiatives at Kemppi. Interestingly, she was also involved in the beginnings of Kempower.

I’m very passionate about the whole industry but also feel a certain responsibility over Kempower because of my involvement in the company’s start. To be able to join now and help in growing the company further is a thrilling opportunity.

In his previous position as an international sales director, Liuska found working with companies from all over the world to be energising and highly rewarding. In his previous role he also became closely familiar with the electric transportation industry.

This industry is very meaningful because as we work to electrify transportation, we lower CO2 emissions. Personally, I’m very passionate about this.
