Sakari Kiiskinen heads Posti logistics subsidiary Transval
Sakari Kiiskinen has been appointed as SVP of Posti’s logistics subsidiary Transval and a member of Posti Group’s leadership team as of September 1, 2020.
The 46-year-old has worked as interim Head of the Transval business group since May 1, 2020. He has held various management positions at Transval for more than 10 years and served as Deputy Managing Director from 2017.

His customer-oriented approach and ability to work closely together with Transval personnel will be valuable when he and his team will continue developing Transval further. I am very pleased that we will get Sakari to lead Transval,” says Turkka Kuusisto, President and CEO of Posti Group.
Kiiskinen commented: “The past four months as the interim Head of Transval business group have been very rewarding and I am very glad to have been given the opportunity to continue in this position. The changes in our operating environment and customer requirements demand a more customer-oriented approach and flexibility to react quickly to the changes. Together with our personnel we will systematically continue developing Transval’s business as part of the Posti Group.”
