Background

I have two Master’s degrees, majoring in both Finance and Industrial Management. After graduating from Aalto University School of Business, I started to work at Booz & Company – soon to transform into Strategy&.

A memorable work experience

Where to start… There are so many memorable work experiences in so many different ways. Earlier in my career, I really enjoyed supporting a major automotive OEM in creating a market strategy in MEA. I really appreciated the large multinational project team setting with colleagues from Strategy& offices located, for example, in the US, Lebanon, India, UAE, and – of course – Finland. Having said that, I have been fortunate to be part of several interesting projects especially in Finland. One memorable example includes creating a portfolio value creation and investment strategy for a family investment company. I have always been really excited in supporting companies in their pursuit of value creation – the thinking behind ‘Capabilities-Driven Strategy + Growth’ has played a key role in making it possible.

Why Strategy&

I believe strategy consulting is a result and people business. You cannot deliver high quality results without excellent colleagues. The folks in the Helsinki office are truly a down-to-earth and driven bunch of great people. And they know the meaning of ‘Work hard, play hard’…

Beyond Strategy&

Golf. End of story.
