Emilia Åberg appointed as Managing Director of CapMan for Good and Tukikummit foundations

The CapMan for Good foundation and the Tukikummit foundation have together appointed Emilia Åberg as their new Managing Director. Emilia brings the foundation over 15 years of marketing experience also including work with charity driven projects. She takes on the role after supporting the foundation with the successful #Steps4Tukikummit campaign organised this spring.

CapMan manages two foundations: The CapMan for Good Foundation and the Tukikummit Foundation. These two foundations have worked to support disadvantaged youth and increase wellbeing throughout society, mostly in Finland. CapMan carries on executing the ambitious targets set for both these foundations and to develop them further and into their full potential across the Nordics.

Transitioning to a new phase in our foundations requires a professional set of new tools and resources. CapMan is delighted to welcome Emilia Åberg as the Managing Director for both foundations, as Maija Ilmoniemi steps down from the role as Managing Director.

Emilia is a multitalent that has over 15 years of experience in global marketing, creating impact, sparking purpose via multiple charity driven projects and working with diverse groups of founders and innovators. A common thread in her work and projects has been the core meaning of bringing people together and working towards a bigger goal at large.  Emilia’s work will continue in her new assignment, as Emilia will fight against youth marginalisation through the work in our foundations.

“I am thrilled to welcome Emilia into CapMan, and the CapMan for Good and Tukikummit foundations. In the current economic situation, it is increasingly important to expand our reach and use our ability to create a positive impact in society, supporting our youth, wellbeing and entrepreneurship throughout society. In Emilia, we get an empathic, solution-oriented and present agent for our foundations who will help us take them to the next level and expand our impact. I also want to give my warmest thanks to Maija Ilmoniemi for her important contributions in developing these two organisations and wish her all the best for her future endeavours”, says Joakim Frimodig, Chair of the Board of CapMan for Good and Tukikummit foundations.

“I am very honoured to be working for these two foundations which both hold great history and potential to further expand their impact in Finland and the Nordics. This role brings a lot of responsibility and accountability towards our youth, which I attend to carry with pride and care”, shares Emilia Åberg, Managing Director of Tukikummit and CapMan for Good foundations.

Emilia Åberg is appointed as Managing Director of CapMan for Good and Tukikummit foundations. Emilia was appointed as of June 6th  2024. She works for the foundations on a part-time basis (50%) and will be located in CapMan’s Helsinki office.

Tukikummit Foundation was started in 2007 by a concern of among others Sauli Niinistö, President of Finland, for young people who are at risk of falling outside our society. The foundation donates funds for children in need to support their hobby activities and school attendance. CaPS has been the engine for organising the most relevant annual donations for the foundation for many years already this year CapMan took over the responsibility to manage and operate the foundation altogether. Our revised vision is to grow Tukikummit into Finland’s most significant foundation in supporting children’s hobby activities.
