Karin Nars has taken over as managing director of Finnish aerial lift manufacturer Dinolift, following the departure of Petri Paavolainen.
Nars has carried out the managing director's role in the past, having taken over from her father in 2011, but appointed Paavolainen as managing director of the family owned company in 2012, so that she could focus her efforts on sales, while remaining as company chairman. In the seven years since the company has gone from strength as it expanded its product range and geographical coverage.
In a statement announcing his departure the company said: “We want to extend our gratitude to Petri for his valuable contribution to Dinolift. Under his leadership, together with the management team and personnel, Dinolift has reached a record turnover, grown into new markets and into new product groups. We want to wish Petri all the best in his future career.”
