About me

Gender MALE
Industry Internet
Occupation Head of Executive Advisors
Location Helsinki, Finland
Introduction My background is in banking - 30 years altogether with particular focus on e-banking since 1982 when Union Bank of Finland launched home banking. Then I worked 7 years for Tieto (a leading North European IT Integrator) as VP and Head of Executive Advisors. My special interest is to demonstrate that the e-habit created in banking can be transferred to other services (business or public sector) and make take off faster as the enduser can reuse his e-trust and e-habit when the familar e-banking tools are re-used for new purposes - in practise embedded in other services. My present work as independent advisor includes chairmanship at ZEF Solutions and continued work in the Real Time Economy program.
