Team Member: Henri

I have known Henri for a long time; for about 25 years. We were neighbours and classmates when we were kids.

We built, fixed and created many things together. We modified computer cases, shot short movies, fixed motors, created websites.

17 years ago, in 2000, I got an idea that it would be neat to run a computer and tech site of our own. Henri was immediately on board with this. It was a lot of hard work but in a few years the site grew into one of the most well-known computer tech sites in Finland.

Our enthusiasm for technology and electronics and everything we know now is because of the early years when we were tinkering with anything we could get our hands on, I would say.

Henri’s passion is in sales and his favourite hobby is closing deals.

Before joining Ruuvi, he had several of his own businesses and also more than 10 years of knowledge and experience in international business.

His main responsibilities at Ruuvi are obviously in sales but also in business relations, manufacturing and logistics. He also has knowledge in several other sectors and is always eager to learn new things.

Tales tell this is an invoice Henri wrote to his neighbour when he was 2 years old. A proof of his long-term interest to entrepreneurship and sales.

For Henri, a work day isn’t limited to 8 hours. He works until all the important to-do’s on his list are done.

For Ruuvi, it’s crucial to have someone like him on board. His passion and dedication are truly what helps motivate and push us to do the best we can and I can trust that he’s an another talented and invaluable member of the team.

Like Otso and Sini-Maaria, also Henri is a co-owner of the Ruuvi Innovations.
