Dare to start acting. Fail and learn. You will get stronger and achieve your goal.
Climbing the corporate ladder from internal post delivery boy to Senior Vice President – Jari Vihervuori never looked back after signing his contract with Lindström in 1987. “I have always been eager to learn from other people and curious about new experiences. I started in the post office, and went on to work in various positions at our laundry in Luumäki, from textile care work to deliveries, and eventually management-level positions.”
In 1994, Vihervuori moved across the gulf to become an area sales manager in Estonia. “It was Lindström’s first time going abroad, and my first time in such a position.” Since then, responsibilities have varied from leading business units, to now managing the regions of Finland, the Baltics, and Ukraine on a management level. “As a leader, I hope that I am able to coach and support people to find their own way, to see the bigger picture, and learn while finding answers.”
