Invesdor, one of the leading equity crowdfunding platform in the Nordics, has announced two additions to its team.
Erik Rehn has been appointed as sales director at Invesdor. Rehn will be responsible for planning and overseeing Invesdor’s global business-to-business sales. Invesdor said his most important mission at Invesdor will be to develop a scalable sales model to boost Invesdor’s international growth. He will also be country manager of Invesdor’s Finnish home market. Previously, Rehn was heading up IBM’s Watson AI business in the Nordic countries and working in sales and strategy planning positions at IBM in the UK.
Additionally, Mikko Kangasaho has been appointed as project manager in Invesdor’s IT team. At Invesdor, he will be responsible for coordinating internal software development, prioritizing development projects and outsourcing of software development. Kangasaho moves from IT consultancy Eficode, where he was a programmer and later a project manager.
“The recruitments are a strong addition to our company’s two core areas: business-to-business sales and platform development,” said Invesdor CEO Lasse Mäkelä. “With Mikko we will continue developing the heart of our business, our investment platform, and building new increasingly sophisticated features on top of it, whereas with Erik we will be able to really boost our growth. We warmly welcome Mikko and Erik to the team.”
Rehn said the main reason for joining Invesdor was the people and the mission;
”I really felt that Lasse, the board and the co-workers were very smart and easy to work with.”
Kangasaho said his biggest challenge will be prioritising projects at Invesdor as they boost international growth and their competitive advantage;
“Particularly interesting will be the strategic targeting of resources in an industry that combines dynamism and change on the one hand and regulation and established competition on the other,” added Kangasaho.
