Success in this task is measured by the GDP of Finland – we are looking for a CEO.

The Finnish government has set a 75% employment target, and for a good reason. Only growth in employment will safeguard our national well-being.

The creation of new jobs depends heavily on the success of our companies in the international B2B marketplace.

Finnish companies have a high level of research and product development expertise, and Finland as a country is regularly ranked among the best in the world in terms of innovation, competitiveness and the business environment.

However, there is always room for improvement. One thing in which we are not yet among the best in the world is the commercialization of innovations. The excellent products and services produced by Finnish companies will find their markets and customers better if we invest more in productization, commercialization, sales and go-to-market efforts.

Building commercial success stories is a matter of heart for Salomaa Group. We propose a national goal to make Finland one of the top 10 countries in the world when regarding commercialization by 2030.

As part of this, we have established a new company, Proof Advisory. Its mission is to help Finnish companies to become internationally renowned in commercialization.

Now we are looking for a CEO who shares our passion.

We are now looking for a CEO to lead Proof’s rapid and profitable growth. Do you share our passion?
