I founded Hill Audit Oy in 2010, and for a while it was just a small company with two employees. I’ve had the privilege to see the company grow as talented experts joined our team one after another. After graduating from the Helsinki School of Economics in 2002 I left my job in an accounting firm to make a career as an auditor in a big international audit firm. Nowadays my working days at Hill Audit consist of a wide range of assignments: helping clients to execute mergers and acquisitions, tax consulting, performing valuations of businesses, and, naturally, statutory audit procedures.
The best things about my work are the wonderful colleagues and the feeling I get from helping our clients. Nothing is more rewarding than a satisfied client who expresses their gratitude after a challenging project.
I like to act as an instructor, and it gives me great pleasure to see the know-how of a person increasing. I’ve lectured on consolidated financial statements at Aalto University School of Business for several years. I also provide training sessions on different topics from the fields of accounting, legislation, and auditing. I’m one of the authors of a book concerning the special matters of consolidated financial statements (Konsernitilinpäätöksen erityiskysymyksiä) published by ST-Akatemia.
In my free time I spend time with my family and do different sports. I like to spend time in nature, and in the summer I take it easy at my summer cottage in Vaasa.
I became part of Hill Audit's sunny team in January 2019. Before that, I have gained experience from international audit firm since 2014. During my career I have worked as an audit expert in different size companies operating in various industries. I have graduated from the Turku School of Economics and my major was finance and accounting and long minor was business law.
In addition of statutory audit, my work includes also consulting our clients in accounting and corporate law issues and developing internal business processes. I like my job because I can be in contact with people and especially assignments which add value for the customers and develop customer business truly motivates me.
I’m very social, and I spent my free time mainly with my family, friends and hobbies. I love animals and at home I have a cat named Vilpertti, rescued from the nature as a kitten. Next trip abroad I usually start plan already before I have properly returned home from a latest trip and my dream is to travel around the world someday.
I work as an auditor at Hill Audit and I’ve been in the industry since 2007. During this time I’ve had the opportunity to assist customers from various backgrounds and industries. I have an extensive knowledge of the laws on accounting and auditing, and you can approach me if you have any questions relating to, for example, taxation or consolidated financial statements.
Companies go through different stages during their life cycle, and I want to assist the customer comprehensively during these important milestones and help them to solve juridical and tax-related questions.
Spectator sports and exercising are something that give me great joy. You can find me on the football field playing, or standing on the sidelines cheering for younger family members. To balance out my quite sporty life I’m also keen on quality wines and beers, and have established a small brewery together with some friends.
CEO, Hill Advisory Oy
I started as the CEO of Hill Advisory when the company was founded in 2019 for the Hill companies to expand our service offering to include a broader scope of advisory services.
Before my current position I’ve worked for nearly 20 years in the private equity industry. After graduating from the Helsinki School of Economics in 2002, I spent the first 15 years of my career in London and Stockholm, working for international private equity funds. Prior to joining Hill, I was the Chief Investment Officer for Hartwall Capital in Helsinki. As a result of my private equity background I also have significant Board experience, cumulatively I’ve spent 30 years on the Board of Directors of 10 different companies, spanning different geographies and industries.
At Hill Advisory working closely with clients allows me to leverage my practical experience to their benefit. I especially enjoy the variation in the assignments and challenges that we tackle together with our clients, no two days are alike. The project nature of the work is also rewarding, the impact and the value-added to clients from successful projects is clearly observable.
I try to stay active in my free time, during the summer I spend time sailing racing and playing golf, while in the winter I go to the gym and enjoy wind tunnel flying.
