Erik Toivanen has been appointed Conficap Oy’s Development Manager as of January 1st, 2022. In his role, he is responsible for Conficap’s development work and participates in the strategy process, real estate development projects and investment planning of the company. Half of the working time is dedicated to real estate business and half to strategy work, as well as to investment and other business. The Development Manager reports to Antti Pitkänen, Director of Real Estate.

Erik Toivanen represents the fifth generation of Conficap’s owner family and has been working for the family company since 2019. Toivanen has been following the activities of the family business closely for many years and has increased his skills with real estate business management training (PGP 27) and strategic management training organised by the Finnish Family Firms Association.

“Ownership has always obliged me to participate extensively in the activities of the family company, even outside the role of controller, but with the new appointment, these tasks are now easier and clearer to carry out. In my new role, I am involved in, among other things, specifying the ownership strategy and mapping out possible new holdings,” Toivanen says. In addition, participation in Are’s Board of Directors gives perspective to Conficap’s business operations.
