Spinverse team recently got together to meet up at the office for an afterwork get-together. There were quite a few reasons to celebrate, but one of them was to raise a toast to our Bioeconomy team leader and Director Kaisu Leppänen, who reached a milestone of 10 years with Spinverse this autumn.
Before Kaisu joined Spinverse back in 2012, she had worked as a researcher at the Finnish Forest Research Institute with a Master's degree in Chemistry. She has also been able to pursue her strong interest in biomass, circular economy and renewables in her positions at Spinverse. Over the years, her commitment and can-do attitude has positively developed her career path from her first position as an Analyst to a Director and team leader of the Bioeconomy team.
Kaisu is now the sixth person at Spinverse who has been awarded the 10-year anniversary recognition by the Finnish Chamber of Commerce. Upon receiving her Chamber of Commerce anniversary pin for her 10-year service, Kaisu says: "It has been a privilege to work on such a wide variety of intriguing cases and roles over these years. It’s been a front-row seat to follow and contribute to the development of new innovations in bioeconomy and circular economy but also to the journey of a growing expert organisation. The inspiring and warm team spirit at Spinverse and the chance to work with the companies and organisations driving the green transition continue to be the absolute highlights of my work."
We all in the Spinverse team congratulate Kaisu — keep up the good work!
