Teemu Kokko took a leave of absence from his duties as president in February 2022 to support his wife Maimo Henriksson in the work of Finland's ambassador to Sweden.

– According to many experts, relations between Finland and Sweden are the most intense ever, and this was reflected in the number of guests and delegations. I have met an enormous number of people from different areas of life, and I believe that those encounters will also benefit Haaga-Helia, Teemu says.

Teemu says he was looking forward to returning to work, and that it feels good all in all.

– Haaga-Helia has been in very capable hands during my absence, so it's easy to come back. I want to say thank you to Minna Hiillos and her team, Teemu says.

What Teemu is looking forward to most is meeting new and old colleagues, as well as national cooperation with the education sector. He is jumping on the moving train, and is also looking forward to getting involved in the international scene, firstly with the Ulysseus European University meeting in Montenegro coming up in December.
