According to Kauppalehti (in Finnish), the Finland based ZenRobotics has announced that it has signed Jorma Eloranta as their new Board Chairman. Jorma Eloranta is the former CEO of Metso. ZenRobotics specialises in creating robots to better sort recyclable material for waste management companies. While the solution may sound traditional, it is all but that. The company has created a very sophisticated approach to the problem with machine vision and other sensors.
The new board after the announcement is Jorma Eloranta (chairman), Timo Ahopelto, Mika Nieminen, Jufo Peltomaa and Marko Walavaara.
Jorma Eloranta stepped down from his job as the CEO of Metso in February. Metso is a global supplier of different technology and services to the mining, constrution, power generation, oil and gas, recycling and pulp and paper industries. Therefore one could conclude, ZenRobotics signed on board the right person for the job.
