Kimmo Kolari (BSc Eng., Printing Tech., MBA, born 1972) has been appointed the new CEO of marketing and communications services company Grano. Kolari has previously served as vice president and interim CEO at Grano, and assumes the position of CEO effective immediately.
Kolari has versatile international and domestic expertise in developing and growing marketing outsourcing services, as well as strong knowledge of the printing industry.
