Pekka Huotari has been named as Ylva’s Group Treasurer. Huotari is coming to Ylva from Cramo, where his responsibilities included arranging financing for the company’s investments and acquisitions. Huotari will start in his new position on 14 August 2023.

Pekka Huotari, MSc (Econ), will be coming to Ylva to take up the position of Group Treasurer. In his new position, Huotari will be responsible for the Group’s financing arrangements and managing related risks and costs.

“We are grateful for the outstanding cooperation all our funding providers have given us during the two largest construction projects in our company’s history, Grand Hansa and Lyyra. They have shown they share our vision of the importance of sustainable real estate investments that help modernise the city of Helsinki. The appointment of Pekka Huotari emphasises the continued importance of debt financing in Ylva’s real estate business. Huotari brings with him extensive expertise and a vision of how to utilise different instruments and arrangements in the current interest rate environment. I want to welcome Huotari warmly to the Ylva community and his new position!” says Ylva’s CEO Leea Tolvas.

Huotari has experience in arranging financing for investments and real estate projects. Previously, he has worked at companies such as Cramo, SATO and the energy company E.On.

“In a capital-intensive line of business, like real estate, financing is extremely important for a company’s bottom line. The property market is currently an unwelcoming environment. However, I have faith that the excellent locations of Ylva’s properties and the company’s investments in sustainability provide a stable foundation in terms of the properties’ funding. I am also excited to have the opportunity to work for a company with an ownership structure as unique as Ylva’s. Promoting the interests of students and working for the future ultimately benefits the whole country,” Huotari says.
