Metso said this week Kirsch, who ran its mining business in Australia for about a year, had also joined its executive group. Victor Tapia is leaving the company and vacating the mining equipment presidency, but will "take on another internal assignment" in the meantime.

Nasdaq Helsinki listed Metso had sales of about EUR3.2 billion in 2018. The company employs more than 14,000 people in over 50 countries.
