I am an Engineer Extraordinaire and this is my Journey from Gears to Greatness

I’m an engineering whiz with a knack for leadership and a passion for propelling teams to new heights. I believe in lifting others up, because together, we can achieve greatness.

My engineering background from Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ) has given me a sharp mind and a deep understanding of the world around me. But technical knowledge alone isn’t enough to be a true leader. I’ve honed my management, sales, and marketing skills through real-world experiences, both triumphs and tribulations.

During my university days, I took inspiration from seasoned engineers who had apprenticed under various masters. I’ve been fortunate to work with industry leaders like NCC, Skanska, Merko, Lemminkäinen, and many more, gaining invaluable insights along the way.

The ever-changing modern world demands constant adaptation and innovation. Organizations must embrace this dynamism to thrive. I’ve seen it firsthand, navigating challenges and devising strategies to propel companies forward.

My diverse career has given me a comprehensive understanding of the Estonian business landscape. I’ve led numerous infrastructure construction projects, gaining unique expertise in risk assessment and strategy selection.

I’m well-versed in legal frameworks, normative documents, national governance principles, and procurement procedures. My quick adaptability, combined with perseverance and resourcefulness, has made me a sought-after negotiator, dispute resolver, and efficiency expert.

Over the past decade, I’ve been an open and goal-oriented communicator, forging lasting relationships with clients across Estonia, Finland, Latvia, France, Germany, Lithuania, Sweden, Denmark, and Ukraine. My heavy machinery expertise gives me a unique perspective, helping clients make informed supplier selection and purchasing decisions.

My team and I thrive on challenges and the opportunity to create long-term value. We’re constantly seeking new opportunities and developing strategies tailored to specific conditions. Our clients appreciate our performance, persuasive arguments, accuracy, attention to detail, and ability to get things done.

In short, I’m an engineering maestro, a leadership maestro, and a maestro of making things happen. Let’s work together to create a symphony of success.
