Roger Holm, M.Sc. (Econ.), has been appointed Senior Vice President, four-stroke, and member of the Ship Power management team as of 1 September 2013. In this position, he is responsible for Wärtsilä's four-stroke activities globally.

Mr. Holm joined Wärtsilä in 1997 and has held several managerial positions, most recently leading the Seals and Bearings organization within Wärtsilä Services. Before that he has had the positions of Vice President, Solutions Management and Vice President, Business Development, also within Services, and has worked as CIO for Wärtsilä Corporation.

In connection to this appointment, Wärtsilä PowerTech and the Ship Power four-stroke organization will be combined into one entity. The reorganization is a continuation to the changes implemented in 2012. It aims to further strengthen the competitiveness and to serve customers more effectively with increased flexibility, faster decision making and optimal utilization of resources. The new setup will become effective as of 1 January 2014. As announced in June, the current head of PowerTech, Lars Hellberg, will pursue his career outside of Wärtsilä. He will support the change management until the end of September.

The new four-stroke organization in Ship Power will consist of all four-stroke R&D and production for both the Ship Power and the Power Plants markets. In addition, it is responsible for engineering, project management and four-stroke sales for the Ship Power market. The Power Plants and Services organizations will not change as a result of the new organizational set-up.

Mr. Holm will report to Jaakko Eskola, Senior Executive Vice President at Wärtsilä Corporation and President of Ship Power.
