Hello, I’m Henri!

Welcome to my Portfolio. I’m thrilled to invite you to peruse my past work and professional experience, and get to know a bit more about me. It’s my firm belief that a good challenge offers an opportunity to develop and improve, which is why I make a point of seeking out new ones in the professional realm as well as in my personal life. Take a moment and look around, and contact me directly to learn more.

 

Bio

I've been over the hill and back, survived every kind of attack. I consider myself fortunate to live these times, since I am fascinated of the progress and development around us. Due to my natural curiosity, I have always been eager to dive in to new areas, to seek for another approaches and to find blue oceans. Despite the age of a senior, I have the attitude of a junior.

 

Professional Path

(Recent occupation on top!)

 

Licensed Realtor

Another career change! After closing down previous business, I decided to seek a new company instead of a job. I wanted to get involved with a company that renews its business, no matter what the business was.

General Manager, Merchant, Entrepreneur

I owned two small convenience stores, located in Espoo, Finland. My company employed about ten young individuals with a turnover about 3M€.

Business Consultant, Entrepreneur

I was providing services as an independent business consultant, concentrating on the fields of business- and sales strategies, Supply Chain Management and logistics.

Development Manager

I joined a family owned company as a sales representative. My chair got bigger along the way, the company was sold couple of times and eventually I split in 2009 from a large international company when I was in charge of development of a sales function.

Education & Miscallenous Experience

I have been studying on practical basis. If I have realized a lack of knowledge on something I needed to do, I have looked up the way to gain appropriate skills.

I am also experienced on many levels, from floor level to board rooms. That is probably the reason why I am able to speak all required languages. And why I get along well with co-workers on every level.

What next?

You tell me!


I am quite flexible. Everything I do, I do with strong hands on-attitude, from boardroom to blue collar. I am always keen to develop things, whether we are talking about processes, strategies, information systems, etc.


The biggest driver for me is the work itself. I am not that interested in titles. I have a lot of experience, which is indeed not a burden but advantage. Because by nature, I am interested in utilizing unorthodox ways to gain better results. At the same time, I respect the known. Seeking new approaches does not mean re-inventing the wheel, but more often than seldom new perspectives can bring significant improvements. I am thinking commercially and believe, that growth and profitability are mandatory and thus justify existence. And if there is some sort of a tech-angle involved, the better!


If you truly want to have my ear, some keywords are useful: strategic, development, growth, international, commitment, tech, quality, integrity. The more of those, the more fueled I'll get!


Since my life has it's fundamentals built already, I don't have "domestic interference" lurking behind the corner. I have everything I need: The family and healthy kids, a house, a summer cottage and a car. And two small dogs, naturally.  I have hobbies, enough books to read and movies to watch. And so on... And I have time and energy to help You and your business!


Get a hold on me and we can discuss to find out if we can help each other!
