CFO Petri Pentti to leave Neste Oil

Neste Oil's Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Petri Pentti, will leave the company at the end of September to take up a position as CFO of the Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) in Dubai. Neste Oil's Corporate Controller, Risto Takkala, will take over Pentti's duties as of 1 October until a successor is appointed.
Petri Pentti has been CFO since Neste Oil was spun off from Fortum and listed on the Nordic Exchange in Helsinki in April 2005. He joined Fortum's oil refining division in summer 2004 to help prepare the spin-off and IPO.
"Neste Oil is a great company, which is set to see interesting developments for many years ahead. I've enjoyed working for the company, but I felt I could not pass up the opportunity of working in Dubai, one of the growth centers of the Persian Gulf, especially as my family liked the idea of a move there as well," says Pentti.
