WHY WORK WITH ME

In everything I do, I have a focus on business, IT and the customer experience.

I believe that closing the gap between business and technology is essential in modern business – be it then in marketing, analytics, sales or the everyday workplace. And it doesn’t have to be overly complicated for the customer or end-user. I strive to look for the leanest and most time-efficient approach to solve business problems, and create products, services and business strategies. I believe first results can be achieved or validated already within the first 5 days rather than 5 months. That way, if a pivot is needed in the approach, we lose only 5 days rather than waste 5 months. Fail fast to succeed faster. And I love getting my hands dirty in the process.

PEOPLE I HELP

IT SERVICE PROVIDERS

The shoemaker sometimes goes barefoot. And the world is going towards "as-a-Service".

Whether improving your XaaS business from the sales, organisational or product perspective, or transforming into it, we can find the needed steps forward. Creating value, increasing profit margins, improving customer experience and predictive outcomes through success science are key. 

KNOWLEDGE WORKERS

IT should be making your work more effective, innovative and flexible while still being secure.

IT should make your work more effective, innovative and flexible while still being secure. A digital strategy and a modern workplace that supports your business and workforce is key in business today. With all of the service providers and cloud applications available today, losing focus can happen easily and then increase complexity and costs.

STARTUPS AND MICROS

Growing and scaling the business can sometimes be tricky with limited resources and expertise.

Building a product and the business is best done as lean as possible from the very beginning. Losing time and money with eternal internal discussions, project fatigue, lack of resources or no modern B2B sales or marketing knowledge can be a killer.

ABOUT ME

My name is Niko, I’m 35 and I’m originally from Finland. The cold country with polar bears.

I’m an experienced Technology-as-a-Service professional with a proven track-record of creating, managing and selling managed IT services and products to business customers since 2010. That’s over 9 years now – yes, time flies.

I have held positions as Managing Director in a +1M€ annual revenue IT Managed Service Provider company and Head of Consumptional Business in a +8B€ annual revenue IT distributor company. I have created and lead a Europe-wide project, Workplace as a Service, a turn-key business IT mobility solution on a monthly invoice.

In short, I have a lot of experience in direct and channel sales of managed IT services and selling the entire IT department and office infrastructure, and creating real value for the (highly demanding) customers while increasing profits in a market that is in general leaking profits.

I am an analytical and empathic diplomat with a constant curiosity for technology and drive for action and development – I rarely stand for the status quo. I have a love for logic, simple solutions, finding value in everything, trying to make a business out of anything and trying to understand how the human mind works.

In service, I believe in “exceptional service, exceptional profit”, in all situations, I believe a “win-win” outcome is possible and with people, I believe in being direct and caring.

In my free time, I do wall climbing and bouldering, run (4 marathons to date), play the piano and read.

Whether you sell IT, create IT or buy IT, we can look into how to align it with your business and find you a cutting edge. If you have a business problem to solve, need a design sprint or just have an interesting project, just send me an email or call – I’m always open for a chat.
