With a dedicated staff of 35 we enjoy working on innovative and responsible financial solutions. Because trust and reliability are essential to our business, we make sure to keep the crucial skills internal.
What makes Voima a true force to be reckoned with is our blend of specialists, who have vital experience, skills and educational backgrounds in such fields as finance, IT, customer experience, digital design, security, ESG, legal, sales, translation, communication, business development and management.
Our CEO is Marko Viinikka, the founder of Voima. Before founding the company, he worked over 10 years in asset management and gained valuable skills in sales, financial markets, wealth management and regulations. Marko has also acted as an active investor on behalf of different groups of investors. These experiences provided him with a deep understanding of the financial world and made him able to cope with stressful and complicated situations.
Marko has effectively built Voima from scratch, and so he has witnessed the entire history of the company from its inception. Both from personal and corporate perspectives, Marko is eager to learn—be it through trial and error or otherwise. Above all, he strives for more wisdom and understanding in order to be a better manager, father, husband and citizen.
Marko is also the largest shareholder via his holding company Voima Capital Oy.
