Name: Jarmo Tikkanen

Education:
Bachelor in Business Administration, Rovaniemi Polytechnic Business School

Position: Senior Energy Risk Advisor

Employed since: June 2010

Before I joined the Group

- I have been working in the energy industry for over 13 years in total both as Account Manager, Trading Trainee and Senior Account Manager. I was employed at the Energi Danmark Group as Account Manager in 2010 and now my title is Senior Energy Risk Advisor.

What I do

- I sell energy to the largest Finnish customers such as companies within the concrete industry, the food industry and public administration. However, I also spend a lot of time preparing tenders, finding new prospects and attending a lot of meetings both with potential and existing customers. In 2013, we won a large tender and succeeded in bringing in Hansel, the Finnish state, as customer. Since then I have been taking care of the customer relationship.

The energy market is changing significantly in the coming years and therefore self-development within the field is becoming more and more important and interesting.

My key strenghts

- I love to find solutions to fit the customer’s needs in order to offer the best possible solution! I am good at networking and being outgoing, which is important in my job. You have to be able to talk to many different people and to know your customer. 

What I especially like about my job

- I like to work in a growing international Group with great opportunities to develop myself as energy professional. There is a positive work culture and many great colleagues.

When I am not at work

I like to do different outdoor activities such as downhill skiing, sailing, tennis or maybe just go for a walk - everything works for me. After the exercise, you can take it easy, relax and maybe watch some Netflix with good conscience.
