Having experienced the urgent pace of a bank’s trading floor and the slideshow-filled days of a management consultancy, I found my spiritual home at Intera in 2008. To me, private equity investing is first and foremost about working with people – it’s all about building trust, partnerships, and life-long friendships. Combine a good team of people with a touch of critical analysis and goal-orientation with a slightly longer perspective, and you can attain even the most ambitious goals.
Through Orthex and Polarica, Intera has allowed me to be part of an effort to globalize Nordic products, and through Normek, it has provided me with experience of the construction sector. At the moment, I am spending a major part of my time in supporting Merivaara’s success on the global health technologies market. The most valuable experiences I’ve accumulated over the years consist without doubt of experienced entrepreneurs’ tips and advice on how to create international success stories.
