More about this expert:

Passion To make businesses economically successful through sustainable / ethical decisions and operational models. To help Finland prosper by taking Finnish companies abroad. To play with technology. How did I become me? Through 20+ years of project and business management in or for a wide range of high-tech and service companies: I went from application engineer to business segment manager in DuPont de Nemours making airplane and turbine engine components from advanced materials; I consulted Nokia, Ericsson and other IT / telecoms players for many years in PRTM Management Consultants and as an entrepreneur; I dug deeper into leadership and teamwork dynamics with Finnish pioneers Innotiimi; I ran the Finnish modular space rental operations of the world leader in the field, Algeco. In nearly all jobs I learned something about sustainability technology and operations, from power plant design to building energy efficiency to life-cycle analysis, building on my education in Mechanical, Energetics and Aerospace engineering. I am also an Export Advisor for the French government. The problems I solve Innovation; product/service development and commercialisation; technology project definition, management or recovery; international business development; mergers and operational restructuring for growth and cost efficiency
