Meet our new colleagues – Heikki Mäki, Arttu Malmlund, and Frida Oinonen

We are excited to announce three additions to our team.

Heikki joined VALOR in the beginning of January as a senior associate. Before this, Heikki was an authorized auditor (KHT) and worked as an audit manager at BDO. Through the years in audit, Heikki has gained an understanding of a large spectrum of different businesses, both domestic and international.

Our new analyst trainees Arttu and Frida both joined VALOR in January. Arttu is studying Finance and Systems Science at Aalto University. He has worked as an entrepreneur and as a business simulation developer intern at Cesim.  Frida is currently studying for a master’s degree at Hanken School of Economics with finance as her major. She has previous experience from working as an analyst intern at Alexander Corporate Finance.

We asked our new team members about their expectations and on their thoughts about what makes VALOR special to them.

What do you hope to gain from your new position?

Heikki: I hope to build expertise in consulting strategy and operational improvement. I really like working with customers and I’m looking forward to focusing on customers’ business and creating value to them through our engagements.

Arttu: I hope that I can put my studies into practice, and, on top of that, I hope to gain knowledge and new skills from real life. I also hope to build many new friendships during the spring.

Frida: I hope to challenge myself and get an insight into different industries. I’m also looking forward to getting to know the team and hearing about their experiences during my internship.

What makes VALOR special?

Heikki: The agility of the company and the hands-on approach of the experienced staff as well. What got me interested in VALOR is the possibility to work on different projects with different people and segments.

Arttu: Motivated teams and a result-driven culture make VALOR special. Here the people get opportunities to build the skill set of their interest.

Frida: In my opinion, VALOR provides great opportunities for a very steep learning curve, as it’s a smaller company with very experienced people and a broad range of projects. The trainee program has also received great feedback which makes VALOR special for me as well.
