Jarkko Konttinen appointed as Managing Director of Miltton Creative

Jarkko Konttinen (MBA) has been appointed as Managing Director and partner of Miltton Creative. Miltton Creative specialises in creative marketing and is a subsidiary of Miltton Group, the fastest growing marketing and communications agency in the Nordics. Konttinen will further strengthen Miltton’s expertise in creating meaningful marketing communications, with a special focus on customer experience. With the lead of Konttinen, Miltton Creative will seek growth and broaden its service portfolio further.

“We have worked with Jarkko for a long time, admiring his dynamic and innovative ways of leading and his building of Finnair’s brand and customer experience. It is rare that such an experienced specialist will move from the client-side to agency-life, so we are excited to have Jarkko onboard. At the same time, I would like to thank Olli Sirén for steering Miltton Creative’s growth path this far,” says Fredrik Heinonen, Senior Vice President, Miltton Group.

Konttinen has extensive experience in international marketing and he has worked as Finnair’s Vice President Brand, Marketing & Product Development, and more recently as Vice President, Inflight Customer Experience, Product Marketing & Ancillary and Retail Business. In addition, Konttinen has been a board member of Visit Finland and Finland Promotion Board, as well as a member of oneworld’s global marketing management team.

“I’m impressed by Miltton’s overall growth and the way it has both challenged and shaken the Nordic marketing communications industry. I am excited to join Miltton and build Miltton Creative further to become a more international and innovative marketing communications agency. By combining sharp customer experience understanding, meaningful marketing communications and service thinking, the next few years will be aimed at creating strong growth and the expansion of our services even further,” says Konttinen.

Since being established in 2014, Miltton Creative has grown and created a new way of delivering meaningful result-driven marketing communications. Simultaneously, Miltton Group has invested significantly into its growth by broadening the range of services it offers and by recruiting leading professionals from across the societal spectrum. Olli Sirén, one of the founders and former Managing Director of Miltton Creative, will continue as a partner at Miltton and work closely with Miltton Group’s wide-ranging customer base to further develop integrated marketing communications concepts.

“The past three and a half years have been fueled by strong growth for Milton Creative. We have succeeded in our growth goals during the first phase and now is a good moment to seek further growth by inviting an experienced professional like Jarkko to lead the change,” states Sirén.
