Mika Seitovirta, who became president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Finland's Glaston Corporation in 2006, resigned yesterday. The company's board of directors appointed Arto Metsänen, M.Sc, mining engineering and mineral processing, as its new president and CEO. Metsänen will assume his new position on September 1, 2009.

Before joining Glaston, Metsänen worked as president and CEO at CPS Colour Group from 2005 to 2009. Before that, he served as president of Sandvik Tamrock Oy (2003-2005), as president of Sandvik Mining and Construction's U.S. and Mexico region (2002-2003) and as president, market area southern Europe and the Middle East (1998-2002). He joined Sandvik Tamrock in 1982.

"We highly appreciate Arto Metsänen's extensive experience in the international engineering industry and equipment sales, which provides us with a valuable asset in today's challenging operating environment," says Andreas Tallberg, chairman of the board of directors. "His predecessor, Mika Seitovirta, held a key role in the development of today's Glaston, which focuses on glass processing technology, as well as in the implementation of the restructuring program."
