Fresh Blood to Roima
Roima Intelligence, a Finland-based growth company with a mission to boost European industrial manufacturing, has recruited two experienced leaders to reinforce its crew: Antti Wallenius recently started as the new director of Roima’s Operations Management business unit, and Tero Huuskola joined Roima to lead the company’s Sales and Consulting.
Roima’s recruitment drive continues strong – the aim is to have 200 professionals developing and providing Roima’s solutions already by the end of this year.
Antti Wallenius has served the industry for nearly 25 years, holding various positions in areas ranging from process automation to management consulting. Previously, he has worked for Siemens, CGI and most recently for Fujitsu as Business Development Director responsible for manufacturing industry.
“Leading and developing Roima’s Operations Management business unit is an inspiring challenge for me. I get to use everything I have learned during the past 30 years and especially all the experience I have gained in international corporations for developing Roima’s growing and internationally expanding business”, states Wallenius. “I have felt very welcome here among Roima’s experts during these two first months.”
Tero Huuskola has solid experience of managing companies and developing the seamless cooperation of sales and marketing teams. He has formerly served as Managing Director of Metric Industrial and as Country Sales Manager of Omron in Finland. Now Huuskola is responsible for the sales of Roima’s software products and professional services.
“Roima’s extensive know-how sparked my interest. Roima is a forerunner in its field and a growing company that is able to respond to the opportunities of its changing operating environment and those of its customers. It’s great to work here among these hard-core professionals”, rejoices Huuskola.
The former Director of Sales and Consulting, Jukka Salovaara, left Roima on June 1 to enjoy his well-deserved retirement.
