He will also be part of the Scandic Group Management Team and starts March 5, 2012.

"Aki Käyhkö´s strong leadership skills and experience from efficient teambuilding makes him the ideal person to further strengthen Scandic´s already well established brand and market position in Finland. I welcome Aki to lead the important challenges ahead with two major hotel openings, in Tampere and Helsinki, this year," said Anders Ehrling, President and CEO of Scandic.
