Biography
Esko Uutela was born in Finland and has worked as pulp and paper industry consultant for his whole professional career of more than 40 years. He graduated from the Helsinki School of Economics (Marketing) in 1976 and from the University of Helsinki (Faculty of Forestry) in 1979. Since 1991 he is residing in Germany.

After working for close to 18 years for a large forest industry consulting company in Helsinki and Munich, Mr. Uutela decided to establish his own forest industry consulting company EU Consulting in Starnberg, close to Munich in Germany in August 1994. During the past years, EU Consulting has increasingly specialised in offering consulting services for two sectors: the tissue and recycled fibre businesses. As of March 2007, EU Consulting made a long-term consulting agreement with RISI Inc. of the United States. Currently Mr. Uutela is responsible for RISI's tissue forecasts and market information services worldwide.

Mr. Uutela has carried out numerous private client projects, as well as published regularly worldwide, comprehensive multi-client studies on tissue business developments and global recycled fibre markets. A new issue of the comprehensive tissue multi-client study "Outlook for World Tissue Business" has just been published.
