Building a winning team sometimes requires change. Antti Heiska has been working as FitWood’s Export Manager since late last year. He has been released by management during the trial period, has returned his keys at the beginning of this week, and will not continue in service.
FitWood has signed an employment contract with Tauno Poutanen with a title of Communications Specialist. Tauno has a BBA degree in communications and leadership, and is a licensed Personal Trainer. He has been working as an entrepreneur, having customers in the PT profession and in various business-related assignments. Aside from fitness coaching, his strengths and ambitions are in communications, content creation and management, and marketing. His roots include a family business in wooden furniture manufacturing and retailing (Kaluste Poutanen) founded by his grandfather, continued by his father and currently run by his cousins.
Tauno will join FitWood’s team in the beginning of April and will start to contribute in sales promotion, communications, customer acquisition and managing our affiliate network that consists of interior designers and health and fitness professionals. In the current situation, Antti’s role as Export Manager will be handled by Emil Ramlert, Scandinavia business leader, and Matias Kukkonen, CEO. In the near future, FitWood will continue to find a long term solution to reinforce its opening of new retailer and distributor channels, and key account management.
Team FitWood wishes Antti all the best and warmly welcomes Tauno to be a part of its winning group!
