When Intera’s first investment fund became a certainty in 2007, I made the best career choice so far, by seizing the opportunity to get involved in building a new player in Finland’s Finnish private equity sector. At that point, I had already gained experience from both the forest industry at Metso and management consulting at Booz & Co.

Building and developing Delete, Consti and Kreate has formed a major part of my work at Intera. Alongside the creation of something new, the most interesting experiences have been the efforts to integrate several companies and entrepreneurial stories in controlled cooperation with executive management and other key individuals. It is because of these experiences that I believe we are on our way to becoming an increasingly better partner for companies seeking growth. As for our newest portfolio companies, I am strongly involved in the development work of Renta and Avara Isännöinti & Provia Isännöinti.
