Nordea’s Personal Banking will have a new head in Finland. The current head Jussi Mekkonen will leave Nordea to take up a position with another financial industry employer in Europe.

The new Head of Personal Banking Finland will be Petri Nikkilä who comes from the position of Head of Personal Banking and Strategy at Nordea. His previous international employers include HSBC and Unilever.

The market is going through a huge transformation, forcing consumers to take a stronger stand on managing their finances. As a major player we are responsible for enabling our customers to do their banking amidst this huge transformation. Throughout my career I have worked very closely with customers, and I believe that this will be of great help in my new position, says Petri Nikkilä.
