Helsinki, Finland 16 August 2017 – The newly appointed CEO of Hanken & SSE Executive Education, Marc Hinnenberg, M.Sc.

“Under Sari’s leadership the past five years, Hanken & SSE has been established as a key player in its segment on the Finnish market as well as internationally and I would like to thank her for that”, says Johan Sandell, Chairman of the board at Hanken & SSE Executive Education. “For the next chapter of the company, I would like to warmly welcome Marc as the new CEO. I strongly believe that he will continue to develop and transform Hanken & SSE, ensuring we maintain the high client satisfaction and continue to develop value-add quality services for our clients.”

“The global business landscape is changing faster than ever and visionary leadership is increasingly important”, says the newly appointed CEO Marc Hinnenberg. “As the top executive education provider in the Nordics combining academia and business, we want to be at the forefront of this change. Our extensive network of business and academic experts mixed with the likes of world explorers gives us the opportunity to support organisations in a unique way, offering both personal development as well as business impact. Our goal is to be a step ahead so that we can offer our customers the same advantage and I’m eagerly joining the fantastic team to take us there”, Marc continues.
