I joined Vaaka Partners in 2016. Before that, I worked 9 years as a private equity professional at EQT, executing new investments and working with EQT-owned companies in Europe and the United States. I also have background as an entrepreneur, as I was the founding investor and active Chairman of the Finnish start-up Blueprint Genetics, which achieved annual revenues exceeding €20m before it was sold to Quest Diagnostics (USA) in January 2020. Prior to working at EQT, I worked in London as an investment banker at Citigroup where I was part of several deal teams responsible for global M&A and capital markets transactions worth over €50bn in total. I have a Master of Science degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Helsinki University of Technology (current Aalto University).
At Vaaka I’m currently working with Framery, Jungle Juice Bar, Medbase and Staria as a Vaaka team member and company Board Member. I am also responsible for coaching Vaaka’s investment professionals.
I am passionate about driving meaningful growth together with management teams and seasoned industrial advisors.
