Mr. Lindholm has held CEO positions both in Eltel and Lemminkäinen and many board memberships, bringing a wealth of experience to Cargotec. Casimir Lindholm has been a member of Cargotec's Board of Directors since 2021, and due to his appointment, he will no longer be available for re-election in Cargotec’s AGM on 23 March 2023.

With a talented team, a strong portfolio of businesses with decision making close to customers, and a commitment to sustainability and profitable growth, I believe that the company is in an excellent position to create value by empowering our businesses even further in the years to come,” says Casimir Lindholm.

“Casimir is a seasoned leader as a listed company CEO with a proven track record of reshaping businesses. His membership in Cargotec’s Board is an advantage providing profound knowledge and understanding of Cargotec’s business and strategic direction. The work to develop the company to its full potential continues and the Board of Directors is confident that under Casimir’s leadership, Cargotec will continue to drive value for our shareholders and customers. Additionally, I would like to express our gratitude to our retiring CEO Mika Vehviläinen for his leadership and outstanding contributions to our business,” says Jaakko Eskola, Chair of the Board of Directors

The remuneration of Cargotec CEO consists of a fixed monthly salary, fringe benefits, and performance-based incentive programs in line with Cargotec’s remuneration policy. The CEO’s retirement age is in accordance with the applicable legislation.

Mika Vehviläinen was appointed as Cargotec CEO in 2013. Cargotec announced on 20 December 2022, that Mr. Vehviläinen had informed the Board of his intention to retire from Cargotec during 2023, in accordance with the terms of his CEO service contract and that Cargotec’s Board of Directors had initiated a search for a successor for the CEO Mika Vehviläinen.
