A Welcome Message from our Managing Partner
My path to consultancy
Welcome and thank you for visiting! I personally wanted to take the opportunity and thank you for spending at least few seconds of your valuable time getting to know our business and see what we can offer you.
Below you find my Executive Bio that lays out the foundation for my consultancy career. I sincerely hope we get a chance to work together on your business needs in the near future.
I have 20+ years of progressive global managerial leadership experience with full commercial responsibility, identifying market opportunities and driving forward sustainable businesses via actionable, manageable, and measurable tactics for consumer businesses.
I am particularly strong in leading integrated Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) business designs that drive increased sales and profits by utilizing marketing automation and data-driven marketing capabilities. Equally strong in ensuring operational excellence by re-engineering systems and business workflows.
My career includes extensive global experience managing complex multi-million dollar cost efficient Direct-to-Consumer P&L’s and marketing strategies throughout Europe and the USA. The results of my efforts have been improved levels of revenues and customer loyalty as well as profits attained by reducing internal operational costs and improving ROI on marketing investments through digital transformation. Living and working in various countries during my career has made me highly adaptable and resilient when facing changes in business environments and given me profound understanding of the cultures I have worked at.
Since 2012 I have been engaged in consultancy and developing the consultancy practice of HKH Management Consulting, a boutique consultancy agency, with growing network of partner companies. I have consulted on DTC business designs across industries such as Print, Publishing, Media, Retail, Gaming/iGaming, SleepTech., Logistics, Healthcare and Membership Organizations giving me wealth of knowledge of how to develop businesses across industries using this unique business design.
I have both M.Sc. Economics and BBA degrees from the Hanken School of Economics and Helsinki School of Economics and Business Administration (today known as Aalto University), respectively. I have also co-authored a publication “Advances in Electronic Marketing” by Idea Group Publishing.
Keep following our thinking and thoughts about DTC environment on your choice of social media platform.
Our Six Point Value Proposition
While proven techniques and methodologies form the baseline for our client work, our advice, recommendations, and solutions are always unique for your business alone.
We assemble best cross-functional teams which are focused on subject matter expertise, leveraging our membership in Global Consultancy Partners (GCP) network around our client cases. All of our consultants have at least 15+ years of experience from driving forward sustainable businesses across functions and industries. Your work directly with only senior level people.
We focus on what we are best at. That is, data-driven strategic expertise for developing consumer businesses, while at the same time helping our clients to discover the disruptive benefits of going DIRECT regardless of the industry in question.
Our decades of experience comes from truly global environment. We are hence perfectly aligned to help your organization in any cross boarder efforts. We are particularly strong in building a “bridge” for your business between Europe and North America and vice versa.
Consultancy practices rarely talk openly about the value/cost ratio of their services. As a boutique agency we work hard everyday to guarantee you the same value as any Top-4 agency in the world for half the price. And that is not all, we also hold ourselves accountable for the recommendations we make.
While many consultancies give innovative and smart recommendations, they often, after doing this, do not have service for the implementation phase. We, on the other hand, have adopted approach where we also service our clientele during the deployment stage utilizing our world-wide operational partner network.
