Uolevi Raade

Uolevi Raade (5 July 1912 - 13 May 1998) was a Finnish industrialist and a long-time managing director of Neste (now "Neste Oil"), the Finnish national oil refining company.

Raade was born in Turku, and received university degrees from Helsinki University of Technology and Åbo Akademi. In 1955, he was appointed managing director of Neste. In 1959, he also became the chairman of the company's board. He acted in both positions until his retirement in 1979.

The former headquarters building of Neste, now occupied by Fortum, is colloquially called "Raaden hammas" "Raade's tooth". It was constructed 1973–78 and is still the tallest office building in Finland.
