A Bit About Mikko

Mikko is a passionate car and motorsport enthusiast.  Mikko has a loving family and an amazing wife who is a business owner and leading real estate agent.  Mikko enjoys spending time enjoying the Pacific Northwest and the great outdoors with his family and their 2 golden labs..."just don't get any mud in the car." 

Mikko is famous for making personal connections on every team he joins, so much so that the only problems we have is when we try to move him off and to another project.  Mikko is a joy and a pleasure to work with.  He is bright & optimistic personally and also pragmatic & detailed professionally.  Mikko is the kind of person you want around if you have a hairy project or initiative that also needs a friendly, calming leader to empathize and bring skeptics or detractors into collaborative promoters.

 

Mikko has developed and led large Delivery Teams and Delivery Programs.  As a skilled and experienced business management consultant with exceptional program, BPO, PMO and delivery expertise, Mikko has been a welcome addition to every team he joins.
