Having experienced the urgent pace of a bank’s trading floor and the slideshow-filled days of a management consultancy, I felt like coming home when I joined Intera in 2008. To me, private equity is first and foremost about working with people – it’s all about building trust, partnerships, and life-long friendships. When one combines a great team of people with a touch of critical analysis and goal-orientation, one can reach even the most ambitious goals.
Through Orthex, Intera has allowed me to be part of an effort to globalize Nordic consumer products, and through Normek, I have gained experience of the construction sector. At the moment, I am spending a major part of my time to support Merivaara’s success on the global health technology market and to grow Polarica’s game meat and wild berry business. The most valuable experiences I’ve accumulated over the years consist without doubt of experienced entrepreneurs’ tips and advice on what it takes to create international success stories.
