Andritz needed treasury to go next-level, hired Minna

Austrian tech-plant builder Andritz may not be a household name in the Nordics, but with a 9-billion-euro turnover and 30,000 employees across the world, it is a complex corporation to manage. In this session of Treasury 360° Nordic on 23 May, Minna Helppi shares her recent experience of coming in as the group’s head of treasury, and describes the path she sees to a better leverage of today’s technological possibilities in the treasury operations.

Frequent acquisitions have been a central part of the group’s development, and as long as new units have been profitable, a lot of operational responsibility has stayed with themselves out there. However, in treasury, that brings a drawback, and Minna Helppi is now – for example – overseeing a drive to bring down the number of banking relations from the 300-or-so, and consolidating the treasury management system setup across the group. A lot of currently email-based processing could get more systematic, she reckons – but first of all the need lies in aligning the whole staff to share the understanding of their big picture.
She was interviewed on stage by SEB’s Harri Rantanen.
