I am offering my 38 years of experience in public and private sector international and development finance for developing and preparing new business and investments in renewable energy and sustainable technologies. I have been pioneering new blended finance instruments at multilateral development banks and for public clients e.g. increasing access to energy, promoting energy efficiency and supporting small and medium business in emerging countries. I have also been working with a variety of financing institutions, multilateral, bilateral, private and public. At Finnfund, IFC and as independent consultant I learned how to find financing solutions for private international and Finnish business in difficult environments in Asia, Latin America, Africa and FSU.Through my work at EBRD I got to know the FSU energy sector well, especially the gas markets with Gazprom as my main client. Currently I am seeking for ways to introduce output-based aid financing instrument to Asian Development Bank, a new innovative way of inclusive finance and energy access in Asia. Business development is close to my heart and among my strengths. I am a team player, believe in team work and can also work independently with all kinds of clients.
