Juha Peltola

I’ve been the managing partner of Vaaka Partners since 2006. Prior to joining the firm, I worked at McKinsey & Company, with acquisition finance at OP Group, and was a co-founder of Valuatum, a start-up in equity and debt research solutions. I have an M.Sc. (econ) from the Turku School of Economics. I also have a background in professional sports with a world champion title in orienteering.

Vaaka Partners has developed from a small bank-owned private equity firm to a successful independent mid-market buyout firm during these years. In addition to actively developing our companies, I am also responsible for the leadership of the firm as well as all our investor relations. I’ve enjoyed immensely my role in building business champions like Reima and Musti Group as a member of the Board. I’m currently working with Unisport and Nordic Healthcare Group as a member of the Board as well as the Vaaka lead for these companies.

I am currently a member of the Board of the Finnish Venture Capital Association and served as the Chairperson 2013-2015. I was a member of the midmarket council at Invest Europe during 2015-2021.

Building growth and creating new jobs feels like the right thing to do. It brings a sense of purpose to my work.
