Summary

I am 41 years old graduate from Tampere University of Technology. I am currently working as a Senior Sourcing Manager. I'm in charge of sourcing touch and display modules for Microsoft Tampere-site projects and sourcing touch IC's globally for all the Microsoft Phones projects.

I am a business and technology expert with 7 years of experience in international sourcing work. I have more than 17 years experience in ramping up technologies in various sourcing and project management roles.

I am an expert in price and contract negotiations, creating business strategies and ensuring successful ramp-ups with continuous supply, competitive cost, great quality and environmental & ethical compliance. I have managed a spend of more than 500MUSD per year.

My project management competence comes from managing several display projects from requirement setting, through development, to ramp up. As a project manager I never missed the deadline for ramp up. I will not allow quality issues to slip through.
