Taronga development


Taronga development has been developing high-tech technology start-ups since 2007.

Development takes places as an investor and member of the board.

I also do consulting based on my know-how to other companies on request.

My investment portfolio is full at this moment and I am focusing on existing companies, described below.


Prior to Taronga I used to work in executive roles in large global corporations:

Digital Equipment Corporation, 10 years, finishing as country manager for Finland, Fiskars Oy 2 years, heading Fiskars’ UPS-business, Nokia 10 years, including country manager for Nokia Networksin in Australian and New Zealand, business unit manager for Fixed Switching, IBM Global Services 3 years, including Project Executive tasks.

I have Ph.D. in engineering at technical physics and I have completed the INSEAD IEP program. I speak finnish, english, swedish and understand german and french.
