Also, the management of Ahlstrom's sales network in the Asia-Pacific region will be transferred from Risto Anttonen to senior vice president Laura Raitio, who will thus have the responsibility of Ahlstrom's sales network in its entirety. Ms. Raitio will also take over the responsibility of human resources from senior vice president Gustav Adlercreutz.
 
In another change, Mr. Adlercreutz, senior vice president, administration, general counsel, will take over business development from Ms. Raitio on top of his other duties.
