Senior advisor
Joined Intera 2014
Work experience Former CEO of Marioff, founder of Endeco
Current investments Trafotek

I have gathered over 20 years of broad international experience on leadership and business development in various strategic and operational roles at global conglomerates, private equity owned companies as well as family companies.

I have an extensive personal hands-on experience on leadership of Marioff Corp. originally a family business, achieving rapid international growth, involving the Private Equity Investor, leading the portfolio company to an undisputed global market leader position, and eventually managing the company’s successful exit to an American stock listed conglomerate. Along the way I have gained experience also on M&A activities and valuable multi-cultural understanding from all continents within various business segments. I believe this experience benefits Intera in the value creation prosess for its portfolio companies.

In recent years I have provided industrial advice for Intera and its portfolio companies. In addition I have taken temporary assignments for interim CEO positions. I have participated in the creation of Prevent 360 and Sitowise. I have served as a Chairman for Trafotek, Sitowise, Prevent 360 and served as a board member in Merivaara.
