Founder of FinDe Business Consulting.
Currently living in Finland; for the past 20 years in Germany. I have more than 20 years of work experience in International Business, Marketing and Recruitment.
My experience includes e.g.
Country Manager Germany and Sales Manager Europe for Finnish thermoforming company Satatuote Oy.
Sales Director for the German pharmaceutical wholesale company Sanacorp Pharmahandel GmbH.
Ten years for Manpower, latest as Head of National Key Account Management where my team and I closed contracts with almost all DAX 30 companies, which resulted in a sales volume over € 1 billion p.a.. During this time, I was also responsible for setting up a joint venture between Deutsche Telekom AG and Manpower, the Vivento Interim Services GmbH, for whom I also recruited the new CEO.
I went to Manpower after starting up, building, expanding and successfully selling my own business center company in Cologne in 2000.
As a board professional, I have a valuable collection of business insight from Germany and Central-Europe.
As a business leader I have a proven track record for international concept launches and impressive growth stories.
I now have over 20 years’ business experience in Europe - from running my own company to high level managerial positions in firms from many different sectors in the European business market.
I can fluently communicate in Finnish, which is my mother language, German, and English.
Johanna's work has played a key role in negotiating with German customers: Johanna has also proactively search new suitable customers, handled communication and negotiation until and after the closing the deals. I can warmly recommend Johanna's business services to companies aiming at the German-speaking market.
