He worked previously as CFO in Aallon Group Oyj, a company offering comprehensive accounting services in Finland.

Mikko Saarnio, (M.Sc.) CFO of Magsort from 1st of October 2023:

“I think this is a great opportunity and just the right moment to join Magsort. The decarbonization solutions are already commercialized and a value partnership service model is up and running with the first major clients. The company is now ready to scale up its business globally.

My role as CFO is to support growth and to build finance functions for the fast scale-up phase. I don’t see finance as a back-office department. I have previously worked in close cooperation with e.g. business model and service development as well as ICT.

As a dad of a 9-month-old son, I’m especially happy to work in a decarbonization company. This is a dream job, if you want to be a part of a company having a true impact on saving our planet. Industrial Decarbonization is a global business because the climate crisis is universal. It is a privilege to join global climate tech company Magsort after some great years in the Finnish and Nordic accounting services industry.

Magsort has local customer service organizations in India and in Finland, from where the rest of the world is served. I’m looking forward to learning business in India – one of the fastest growing economies in the world.”

Kalle Rasinmäki, CEO:

“Great to have Mikko onboard – the timing is perfect. His skillset, experience and personality match perfectly the Magsort organization. He will be one of the key players to support our growth and make global scale-up possible. Together we’ll build a new kind of finance function to support all of our key processes.”

Magsort is a decarbonization company.

Its revolutionary solution makes it possible to extract all the metals left behind in steel slag while refining the remaining material into valuable components for low-CO2 cement.
