MSc (Econ.) Artti Aurasmaa has been elected as the new CEO of the information system and financial services company Staria Oyj. Aurasmaa will assume the position with effect from 1st of October 2021. He has a strong history of creating and leading growth. To name a few, Artti has acted in positions such as CEO of 3 Step IT and Ropo Capital. Aurasmaa joins Staria from the CEO position of the publicly listed Martela Oyj. He also acts as a Board Member at Vincit.

Staria is a forerunner in the field of information systems and financial services, currently employing over 300 people and offering services in more than 40 countries. The growth rate of the company for this year is over 25 % and predicted turnover for the year 2021 exceeds EUR 27 million.

“I’m excited to start building one of the greatest growth companies in Europe together with Starians, as I believe that all great successes are built together. Staria is moving to the next, even more international phase in its story, where growth will be catalyzed by our existing and quickly internationalizing clients. It’s great to join a company where I can certainly learn new things and on the other hand utilize my previous experience”, says Artti Aurasmaa.

“Rather than providing standard solutions, our success is built on solving our customers’ issues and producing valuable knowledge that supports their international growth. First and foremost, I wish to get to know Starians and our customers. One of the main themes this autumn is to help our customers grow and develop even faster by further crystallizing our services”, Aurasmaa continues.

Founder and long-term CEO Juha Tommila will move to develop the company further as a Member of the Board.

“When establishing the company, I would never have guessed what a journey of growth and development we would have ahead of us. Today, more than 18 years later, we can be proud of the company we have created together. After thorough consideration, I have decided to switch from my operational role as a CEO to developing Staria as a Member of the Board and as a major shareholder. Now it is the perfect time to let Artti lead Staria’s way forward”, says Juha Tommila.
