Jukka Alho (1952– ), M.Sc. (Tech.), followed the business model preferred by listed companies where the CEO is the face of the business; he wanted to publicly discuss the Post's results. He also took the Post's business expertise and organisational culture to a new level by asking, encouraging and questioning.
Alho worked as design engineer and project manager at Televa and Telefenno from 1976 until 1981, then as systems engineer, head of department, technical manager and deputy managing director at Helsingin Puhelinyhdistys (later Elisa Communications Oy) until he joined the Post. He was Finland Post's Group President and CEO between 2000 and 2007, and after 2007, Itella's Group President. He retired in 2012. Alho also served on boards of various companies.
