The New Project Managers of Fiare Solutions

We are thrilled to introduce the new three Project Managers in our Helsinki Headquarters! Meet Jeffrey, Niko and Tuomas! We gathered some fun facts to get to know them better.

Project Manager Fiare Jeffrey
Jeffrey Vink

Where are you born?
I was born in the Netherlands, in a city called Dordrecht.

What was your childhood nickname?
I don’t think I really had one. I mean, my friends just call me Jeff.

What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
I like to play games on the PlayStation 4; mostly shooters…. I guess that’s nerdy? Other than that, I read books about anything I find interesting (project & product management at the moment).

How about sports? Are you an active member of Athletic Club Fiare?
Yes, I am! I go running once every week with the club. Besides that, I’m in a karate competition team and go to the gym regularly. Exercise is a great way to clear your mind after a busy day at work.

If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?
The power of teleportation; I could go anywhere instantly, saving lots of commuting time, and travel costs. I guess it’s also better for the environment compared to taking a plane to fly somewhere.

What do you like about Project Management?
There are many things that I like about project management: The variety of work, problem-solving approach, international collaborations, inspiring your teams, and providing value to your customers and society. Thinking together with your customers about how to achieve marketplace success is challenging and fun. You get to learn more about different marketplaces and industries, and each customer has a unique approach on how to make their business successful.

Anything to say or comment?
Come visit me and my colleagues at the ICMA Spring Conference in Helsinki! We’d be happy to talk with you how we can create a successful marketplace for you.

Project Manager Fiare Niko
Niko Oksanen

Where are you born?
I was born at Orimattila, and been living in southern Finland all my life.

What was your childhood nickname?
I did not have any nickname, as my name is already quite short.

What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
I fix pc and other household devices my self typically. Many times in my free time, I act as a pc user support. I also like to watch TV shows related to the IT industry.

How about sports? Are you an active member of Athletic Club Fiare?
Yes, I’m also a member of ACF, and I’m really a hobby sportsman. I’m actively practising Orienteering and Kayaking. In wintertime, I do running and downhill skiing. In the background, I also do martial arts and gym, and I run in a couple of marathons.

If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?
I would choose the ability to see the future.

What do you like about Project Management?
It’s my profession, so been working as PM and other similar roles now for 20 years, representing both customer and supplier, and experience in all phases and sizes of the projects.

Anything to say or comment?
We have very good team spirit in Fiare, and it is nice to work with skilled people.

Project Manager Fiare Tuomas
Tuomas Tiira

Tuomas has been working with Fiare for almost two years. Initially, he was based in one of our client’s office. Last December, he has been assigned to new responsibilities and assigned to work in the Helsinki office.

Where are you born?
Kempele, Finland

What was your childhood nickname?
There was so many, Tupe, Tumppi, Tuoppi, Tommo and so on…

What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Well, I guess checking tech related things from the web.

How about sports? Are you an active member of Athletic Club Fiare?
I wake up early in the morning and go for ice hockey practice or gym before work hours. I also love cross-country skiing, but sadly the weather hasn’t been so great.

Of course, I’m a proud member of the ACF and I am the current title holder of Toughest Viking, Fastest Kart driver and the winner of 10km run (just to remind Tommi). And we will see who will be polishing whose shoes after Bodom run in May.

If you could have any superpower, which would you choose?
I would have the ability of Flash. In addition to his super-speed, he can travel in time.

What do you like about Project Management?
When you got a good team to work with, even the most critical problems will be solved without pain. Sometimes it feels like somehow controlled chaos once you got many task and project at the same time. What makes it likeable is that you can trust your team to do their job and do not need to worry about it. So many thanks for the team in India and Finland.

Anything to say or comment?
Nope
