Helsingin Sanomat's former editor-in-chief Kaius Niemi has accepted a new role at communications agency and consultancy firm Miltton, following his resignation from the newspaper last November.

As Miltton's new director of Growth and Technology as well as Partner, Niemi will be responsible for steering the company's growth and expanding its network and team of advisors, according to a company statement.

"He will bring his understanding of the international media landscape, public debate and technological developments in media and communications to Miltton’s clients," the statement reads.

Niemi stepped down as editor-in-chief of Helsingin Sanomat in November after being caught driving drunk in the parking lot of the headquarters of Sanoma, which owns the paper.

Helsinki District Court fined Niemi 23,800 euros after finding him guilty on a charge of aggravated drink driving.
