Spinnova Plc: Spinnova’s General Counsel Lasse Holopainen appointed to the management team

General Counsel and Board Secretary Lasse Holopainen has been appointed a member of the Spinnova management team as of 1 September 2022.               

As General Counsel, Lasse has been responsible for all legal matters of the company and advising senior management on legal and compliance related topics. As Board Secretary, he supports and advises Spinnova’s Board of Directors and its committees in their work. Lasse will continue in these roles as a management team member reporting to the CEO.

Lasse joined Spinnova in November 2021 from Nokia Corporation where he was most recently engaged in patent licensing, litigation and other legal matters. Lasse’s past experience also includes heading the legal function of a young software startup as well as corporate M&A work at Roschier, a leading Nordic law firm. Lasse has a Master of Laws degree from the University of Helsinki.

“During his time at Spinnova, Lasse has already had an important role in Spinnova’s growth story and now him becoming a member of the management team is a natural next step, as the company is scaling up its business. As we grow, we will inevitably face more complexity so having a business-minded legal function fully engaged in the work of the management team will be highly valuable”, comments CEO Kim Poulsen.

Spinnova is committed to using only sustainable raw materials such as FSC certified wood and waste. SPINNOVA® fibre is produced without harmful or complex chemical processes, and has the touch and feel of natural fibres such as cotton and linen.
