A changing of the hoodie at Rovio, the Finalnd-based creator of the catapulting Angry Birds series of casual games that has seen its profit fall by more than half in the last year: its CEO Mikael Hed is stepping down, and he is passing on the reigns to Pekka Rantala, who most recently has been the CEO of Finnish drinks maker Hartwall but also spent many years with Nokia. In the words of Rovio, Hed is “passing the hoodie”, to Rantala, a nod to how its execs are known to don red hoodies as their corporate uniform.
