Master of Science (Business Administration) Tom Lindholm has been appointed Head of Lifewide Learning at Aalto University and Managing Director of Aalto University Executive Education Ltd (Aalto EE). He will start in his new position on 2 January 2022 and report to Petri Suomala, Vice President of Education at Aalto University and Chair of the Board of Aalto EE.

In his role, Tom Lindholm will be building new lifewide learning activities at Aalto University and leading Aalto EE. In ten years, Aalto EE has grown into the largest university-owned executive education and professional development organisation operating as a business in the Nordics. At the same time, lifewide learning has grown in importance.

‘To meet the future competence needs, Aalto University endeavors to leverage the synergy between its own extensive offering – degree education, Aalto University Open University, FITech Network University and Aalto University Summer School – and Aalto EE’s offering and form a closely-knit lifewide learning entity’, Suomala states.  

Tom Lindholm has a long background in the learning and development environment; he was the CEO for Talent Vectia from 2012 to 2019. Prior to his position as CEO, he led and worked in different positions from 2003 to 2012 in the consulting company Vectia. Before his career in the afore-mentioned consulting companies, Tom Lindholm worked at Scandinavian Airlines, Wärtsilä and at Åbo Akademi University. Currently he is working as an interim Program Director for the KEKO ecosystem program at YIT and as board member at the HAUS Finnish Institute of Public Management Ltd and Grannenfelt Finance Ltd.

‘The need for continuous learning is increasing rapidly in the society of today and learning agility is a crucial competence both on individual and organizational level. The speed of change and the digitalization creates new opportunities and requires new skills and capabilities. Aalto University and Aalto EE are in a unique position to offer new learning and development possibilities to individuals and organisations,’ says Lindholm.
