I have worked in the Executive Search industry for 32 years, the last 21 in one of the world’s top ten Executive Search firms. I took part in over 1 000 Executive Search Assignments and met thousands of Business Executives from all kinds of industries and walks of life – successful and visionary top-level Business Leaders, Pioneers, Forerunners, Trendsetters in the Business World.
I started my career as a Business Controller, eventually becoming Department Manager at an international Transport and Forwarding Company, where I worked for seven years, being responsible for the business control activities and the self-cost calculation for the company. I was then head-hunted into the Executive Search industry, where I started as an Executive Search Consultant but soon became more and more involved in Research. Eventually, I jumped over into the Research Function and became a full-time Research Manager.
I was born in Helsinki and graduated from the Swedish School of Economics in Helsinki. Hanken (nickname) is a leading, internationally accredited university with over a hundred years of experience in the field of education and research in economics and business administration.
