Christer Niemi joins Trailmaker as Senior Advisor

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 a board member in several Sentica’s portfolio companies. Niemi sees Trailmaker as a 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.
