Pekka Narinen has more than 20 years of experience in multi-disciplinary design projects and international operations.

– Pekka has strong expertise in customer work and the management of challenging projects that cross the boundaries of units and business divisions. AINS Group has sets its sights on strengthening its foothold in construction services for the industrial sector and in the capital region. He will offer valuable support to our current units in the achievement of these targets,’ explains Timo Leppänen, Senior Vice President for Structural Engineering.

Pekka Narinen has more than 20 years of experience of multi-disciplinary design projects and international operations. Previously, he has led export projects and construction design and management services at Pöyry. Before that, he worked as the head of Pöyry Civil and the director of Finnmap’s construction sector.

– AINS Group’s expertise is outstanding and the company has exciting goals for growth, in which the capital region plays a major role. I believe that I can offer AINS Group new expertise and know-how in how resources in various design areas can be merged to offer synergy value to customers, says Narinen.

– Interaction at the customer interface must be continuous. That allows us to recognise customer needs before the projects are launched. The goal is that we are invited to take part in projects without needing to offer our services. AINS Group has the expertise and commitment to customer targets needed for that – there's no two ways about it.

Pekka Narinen took over as AINS Group’s COO for structural engineering and joined the executive team on 1 September 2021. Narinen will support the heads of units and divisions and focus on the development of sales of multi-disciplinary projects and operations in the capital region and for the industrial sector.
