Sensmet’s board has appointed Toni Laurila as company’s new CEO on Jan 8, 2021. Toni Laurila is a Co-founder of Sensmet and he has had the key role in the technology development of Sensmet µDOES® multi-metal water analyser and also in establishing the company. For the past two years at Sensmet Toni has been working as the CTO leading company’s R&D activities.
At the same time earlier CEO and Co-founder Kalle Blomberg becomes the new CTO. Kalle has led Sensmet since founding the company to phase where we are entering the global water monitoring markets but now as our production and R&D team grows rapidly his deep knowhow on the Sensmet water analyser technology is required as CTO.
“Founding the Sensmet and leading it for the first three and a half years has been an extremely instructive experience. Seeing all the phases from founding the company, proving the concept and technology, securing the seed round and releasing the first product to the market has required a steep learning curve and couldn´t have been achieved without the exceptionally talented team which has already grown to eight water professionals. During this time also the global water scarcity has become ever greater challenge and the demand for novel solutions to tackle this problem is vast.” says CTO Kalle Blomberg.
"This change is natural continuation of the company’s organisational development accomplished in the last four months. Sensmet is strengthening the business development, sales and management of the company to meet the growth targets." comments CEO Toni Laurila and continues "I can better focus on customer relations, business strategy and financing which I have done more and more last year." The swap in the roles of the Co-Founders enables to utilise their expertise and interests as a part of the strong development of Sensmet. In the fall 2020 Sensmet hired Janne Suhonen as the CCO, Mikko Suutari as the production manager and Arve Lukander started to chair the company board. These developments allow Sensmet to reach a strong position to realise the company vision to transform real-time water quality analysis in process industry and environmental monitoring.
Toni’s first tasks include updating the growth strategy of Sensmet, securing capital funding, and start building global partnership network for sales, installations and service.
