Mikael Castrén has been appointed as CEO of TAPAUS, Timo Aalto will take on the role of CEO of TAPAUS' parent company LIWLIG Group

Helsinki, Finland (24.1.2023) Event agency TAPAUS is undergoing a management change with the appointment of Mikael Castrén as the company’s new CEO. Mikael has previously worked as Business Director of TAPAUS, responsible for the company’s customer strategy and events’ impact measurement, among other things. 

Timo Aalto will move from his position as CEO of TAPAUS to become the CEO of its parent company LIWLIG Group. Timo is one of the two founders of TAPAUS and has been the CEO ever since the company was founded almost 11 years ago. 

“I’m proud of the wonderful gang at TAPAUS, the fantastic clients and the strong partners. Each phase of the company needs its own leader and I believe that Mikael is the best person to steer the company into the future, as he shares the same people-oriented, open and forward-thinking culture that is strongly in TAPAUS’ DNA,” says Timo Aalto. 

Founded in 2012, TAPAUS is the leading event agency in Finland and has grown to become the Nordic leader as part of LIWLIG Group. The Nordic cooperation also brings tangible benefits to TAPAUS’ customers, as the diverse range of services and expertise of the sister companies complement TAPAUS’ local offering in Finland. 

“I am excited about the opportunity to share the next stage of TAPAUS’ growth journey together with its clients and staff. My goal is to cherish our company culture and solid value base. While the focus is on business development, we are always putting the people first. I will take on the new role at an exciting time, as TAPAUS is the leading player locally and at the same time the Nordic expansion brings more and more opportunities for our clients and staff,” says Mikael Castrén.
