, Vice President, Risk Management at Metso, has been granted recognition as Risk Manager of the Year in Brussels, Belgium.

The award was presented to Laukkala by the Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) together with Commercial Risk Europe on December 6th, 2016. The Excellence in Risk Management Awards were organized for the first time to honor outstanding individuals for their achievements in the field of risk management.

"I sincerely appreciate this award. Being recognized like this would not have been possible without the outstanding network of Metso risk management professionals and the Finnish risk management association with whom I am privileged to work," Laukkala says.

In recent years, Metso has set up a solid foundation and effective processes for managing different types of risks. All risk management operations are aligned with the company's strategy and business objectives, supporting the continuity of operations, improving people's safety and contributing to overall competitiveness.

"Risk management in our continuously changing operating environment requires constant monitoring and effective networking with multiple stakeholders. For example, nowadays proactive monitoring of the world's political situation has become more and more important. In addition, cyber security is definitely one of the emerging issues that will need more attention in the future," says Laukkala, commenting on the changing landscape of risk management.

Laukkala joined Metso in 2002. He previously worked in the Finnish Defense Forces in international assignments. Laukkala has headed Metso's risk management organization since 2004.
