Kim Palmroos brings the perfect mix of skills and mindset to Telia Carrier’s business. Educated in engineering, economics, and management, Kim has held senior positions in several international organisations, including other companies in the Telia family.
Alongside his skills in finance, change management, and business development, he also has vast experience in information systems, logistics, HR, and facility management.
Kim first joined the Telia family in 2002 as CFO, followed later by a promotion to Country Manager, of Telia Mobile Finland. After the merger with Sonera and the divestment of Telia Mobile Finland, Kim left the Group for several years, but returned to the fold in 2011 as Vice President and head of Finance and Business Control for International Carrier. He has also held the same position for Telia Group Commercial. Together with his main finance role, he serves as Managing Director for the Telia Carrier legal entities in Finland, Denmark, and all three Baltic states. Kim is a board member on several Telia Carrier companies around the world.
If there’s one thing he truly understands, it’s competition. Kim has represented Finland in handball and has competed at elite levels both in football and ice hockey. His sporting instinct follows him to the office – while he used to say, “I hate losing”, Kim now prefers “I love winning”.
