CHRISTER NIEMI APPOINTED AS A SENIOR ADVISOR


27.2.2020

Christer Niemi has started at Trailmaker as a Senior Advisor. Niemi is an experienced business growth developer – he has helped growth companies to succeed for example as aboard member in several Sentica’s portfolio companies. Niemi sees Trailmaker asa valuable long term partner for private equity companies.

Niemi got to know Trailmaker in client projects where he was involved in the role of the main owner. Trailmaker has secured success in growth companies in many different ways.

“Trailmaker's systematic process effectively manages change situations. The private equity investor is looking for a significant increase in value, and the Trailmaker concept is a great tool for ensuring profitable growth”, Niemi says.

According to Niemi, the biggest challenge for growth companies is putting the strategy into practice.

“Only a small percentage of strategies are implemented, let alone on schedule.In the worst case, no change will occur. The Trailmaker concept is a powerful tool in securing the implementation phase. At the same time it ensures that the executive management and the board supporting it have a broad common vision.”

The challenges facing growth companies are familiar to Niemi from many perspectives, as he has worked with growth companies in a variety of roles during his career, most recently as a partner at Sentica.

“Growth companies and entrepreneurs have always been very important to me. I’m enthusiastic about entrepreneurial stories – how the idea has started and how the company has moved forward”, Niemi says.

A warm welcome to the Trailmaker's team, Christer!

JUHANI ELOMAA APPOINTED AS A SENIOR ADVISOR


6.8.2019

Top level finance and management professional Juhani Elomaa has been appointed as Trailmaker’s Senior Advisor. Elomaa has been the CEO of publicly listed asset management and financing corporation Taaleri Oyj. Currently he is the Vice Chairman of the Board at Taaleri Oyj.

At first Elomaa became acquainted with Trailmaker in the role of a customer at Taaleri Oyj. He became convinced of the concept's feasibility as a strategy execution tool from its concretism and transparency.

“Corporate strategies are broad and large-scale, which means there is often a gap between planning and execution. Things become difficult when the focus isin both complex and simple things at the same time”, Elomaa says.

“With Trailmaker, companies can achieve a common view and ensure their strategy is concrete enough to be communicated to all their employees”, he states.

Juhani Elomaa has earlier worked as a member of Sampo Bank management team as well as head of Mandatum Private Banking. He is a Master of Social Sciences from University of Turku and eMBA.
