Experienced engineering professional joins Finnish outfit
Seloy Live, has appointed Jukka Vänskä as its new COO. Highly experienced in industrial engineering, consumer electronics, electromagnetic technology and the automotive industry, Vänskä was previously Sales Director for a Finnish-based manufacturer of glass/plastic emergency exit roof hatches for buses.
“When I heard there was an opportunity to join Seloy Live, I became very excited – and now here we are!” says Vänskä. “During my 20 years working for various global businesses I have gained experience across various areas of responsibility, engaged with many different negotiations and dealt with diverse set of customers, all over the world. With my experience and skills I believe that
I can guide Seloy Live to a growth path that is both controlled and sustainable.”
Boasting an MSc in Industrial Engineering and Management, Vänskä initially spent 20 years in the hand-held electronics industry, providing global OEM solutions for cellphone consumer interfaces. Before joining Seloy Live, he was Sales Director for Valeo Group’s Thermal Bus Systems, Finland, responsible for roof hatch products globally.
“I believe in leadership rather than management,” Vänskä adds. “It is the people that make the difference, when the team is motivated and plays well together. Within my first few days at Seloy Live I was able to conclude that there are great people in this team, and I believe we have the building blocks for carrying on and growing the Seloy Live success story.”
