Henrik Johansson Casimiro starts as CEO, Adven Sweden

Adven has appointed a new CEO to head its operations in Sweden. After three years of rapid growth, Ilkka Niiranen has handed over the CEO responsibilities to Henrik Johansson Casimiro (B.Sc, Chemical Engineering, 44 years), former Chief Operating Officer of Adven Sweden. Henrik started in his new position on April 1st, 2020.

Henrik has a long-standing experience in energy sector. He has held various positions as a manager, director and CEO of well-known companies in the industry. When Adven acquired E.ON Värme Lokala Energilösningar Aktiebolag (‘EVLE’) in December 2017, Henrik assumed the role of COO at Adven Sweden. Since then, Henrik has been a member of Adven Sweden’s management team and Adven’s Group management team.

“Sweden is an extremely important market for Adven, and we are ready to invest significantly to grow our energy as a service business here. Therefore, this appointment is very important. I am very happy that Henrik will take lead of the team. I am convinced that he has the motivation, relevant experience and most importantly the right kind of people leadership skills.” says Jyrki Vainionpää, CEO, Adven Group.

“I feel energized and excited to take on the vast responsibility of Adven Sweden’s operations, especially in this extra ordinary situation when our purpose is clearer than ever. Now it’s important for us to step up the work that will enable the industry to continue its transition towards renewable and circular energy and water management. We will also continue to secure and develop not only our existing, societally important infrastructure, such as critical energy supply to the food and pharmaceutical industries, but also our district heating networks throughout the country,” says the newly appointed CEO Henrik Johansson Casimiro.

“We aim to double our business in five years while delivering on concrete sustainability targets, which for us to a large extent go hand in hand. I now see it as my duty to elevate the unique capabilities we have in the company and make sure that we all work together to achieve our goals,” Henrik concludes.

Ilkka Niiranen started in a new position as SVP, Operational Excellence and Business Development in Adven Group on April 1st, 2020.

“I warmly welcome Ilkka back home when his international assignment in Sweden ends as planned. Ilkka led our first phase of rapid growth in Sweden successfully and thanks to that work Henrik and the team have a strong platform for the next phase. I am also very happy that Ilkka is now leading our most important group-wide program, i.e., operational excellence. Currently over 100 Adven employees are involved on this program to make us more efficient,” says Jyrki Vainionpää, CEO, Adven Group.
