From Vaisala’s top management to start-up business
The Vice President of Vaisala’s international service business Hannu Katajamäki (MA Sc., MBA) started as a CEO of Lukoton Oy. We’re very happy to have experienced, inspiring and exceptionally networked Hannu to join us.
Hannu has worked various management positions in Vaisala, Outokumpu and Metorex Oy before Lukoton Oy.
It takes guts to jump from well earned corporate career into a start-up venture. It has been interesting, educating and rewarding to work for big corporations. Whole my life I’ve wanted to learn new things and this sort of opportunity with Lukoton represents itself quite rarely. These guys have great idea, excellent timing, right culture and means to deliver. It gives you loads of energy to build something completely new with genuine added value.
In addition to his career 54-year-old father of three children is interested in photography, music and magic tricks. “As a start-up people, you need relationships, persistence and ability to observe thing in macro and micro level. Some magic tricks might come in handy also”, adds Hannu and smiles.
