Kalmar - Finland

Cargotec has named former Nokia president Pekka Ala-Pietilä as the preferred chairman of Kalmar as it continues with its proposed demerger.

Ala-Pietilä has served as the chair of the European Commission High-Level Expert Group on Artificial Intelligence and Finland’s Artificial Intelligence Programme.

In April, Cargotec announced it planned to spin off Kalmar as a separately listed entity.

Cargotec board members Teresa Kemppi-Vasama and Tapio Kolunsarka are also named as proposed board members of the separated Kalmar.

The three executives will form an external demerger committee to support the process of preparing to list Kalmar.

“Planning will continue throughout 2023 and the potential separate listing of Kalmar on Nasdaq Helsinki would, if carried out, take place in 2024,” Cargotec says in a statement. 

In 2022, Cargotec’s plan to merge with Konecranes was cancelled after a decision by the UK Competition & Markets Authority to block the merger between the materials handling giants.
