Kallas, who joined the company’s management group in this new role on June 1, will be tasked with strengthening and developing the company’s long-term strategy work and communicating Teleste’s objectives even more clearly to stakeholders.

Teleste’s business lines span customer bases including leading European telecommunications operators and the world’s leading rolling stock manufacturers. The customer base also includes authorities responsible for public security, as well as public transport operators in Europe and other parts of the world.

Teleste is also expanding its operations particularly in the North American broadband market.

Kallas previously worked as a senior manager, strategy for Accenture, spanning a number of different industries

“The position of SVP, group strategy is a new one at Teleste, and I will start building the role with enthusiasm and forward-looking curiosity. Broadband network technologies and modern video security and information solutions are becoming increasingly significant with regard to the smoothness and security of people’s daily lives. As a renowned technology provider in these industries, Teleste has an excellent opportunity to be successful in the changing markets thanks to the company’s strong customer centricity and ability to develop technological innovations. Our aim is to clarify Teleste’s objectives, also in the longer term, along with the concrete means by which they will be achieved,” said Kallas.

“The importance of environmental and sustainability perspectives is growing for Teleste’s customers as well, and these themes will be increasingly highlighted as focal points of our strategy. Our advanced product solutions in areas such as analytics and diagnostics already enable our customers to operate at a higher level of sustainability and security than before.

“High-speed internet, safe urban spaces and smooth public transport – as a new member of the Teleste team, I’ve found it fascinating to realise how often we come into contact with the company’s products in our daily lives, even if we do not necessarily notice it. In addition to communicating our strategic objectives, we also want to more clearly communicate to our stakeholders what Teleste actually does and how our handprint is visible in society.”
