Aalto EE strengthens its organization with an experienced marketing management specialist


Aalto University Executive Education (Aalto EE) has appointed Mirjami Mäkinen (M.Sc.Econ.) as Senior Advisor from September 1, 2016. Mirjami has long-term and extensive experience of senior executive and marketing positions in Salomaa Group. Over the last nine years, she has served as Chief Executive Officer of Salomaa Yhtiöt Oy, the Group parent company, and as a member of the Board of Directors. 

“Aalto EE does valuable work on behalf of Finnish businesses. Aalto EE experts understand companies, their operational preconditions and business models, and know how to efficiently interweave theory with practice. Finland's most international educational partner knows what kinds of skills and competencies are needed in Finland and abroad, at present and in the days to come. I look forward to being involved in encouraging businesses to develop and share their expertise on a continuous basis, and ensuring that the program contents support the success of Finnish companies in the best possible way,” says Ms Mäkinen.

At Aalto EE, Mirjami Mäkinen will participate in the planning and implementation of program concepts and the development of new cooperation models.

“Mirjami's expertise and experience provide us with a stronger basis for expanding our offering for marketing executives and experts in particular. For instance, our pilot Trainee program is already proving successful. Moreover, Mirjami's background in executive positions in a family-owned company provides the opportunity to develop accurately targeted content for this segment. I very much look forward to working more extensively with her,” says Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director for Aalto EE and Professor of Practice at Aalto University.
