Antila is responsible for the company's risk management and compliance. She has previously worked in numerous companies in the financial sector and has been responsible for developing compliance activities, among other things.

“Taina is a very experienced insurance and compliance professional. It's great to have such an experienced expert in charge of developing Elo's risk management and compliance,” Elo CEO, Carl Pettersson, said.
