The September transfer market continues busy. MDI made top-notch midfield acquisitions as Lic. Phil. Mikko Valtakari and M.Sc. Juho Nyman join the team from the beginning of October. Both men are sure-handed and hardworking and they bring about winning culture and also some new tricks. Signing of the pair gives a massive boost to MDI’s expertise in innovation, economic and labour market policies.
During the last 20 years, Mikko has successfully built business e.g. in LTT, HSE, and the latest, in Tempo Economics. As for Juho, he has worked the last six years as a researcher and a wingman to Mikko in Tempo Economics. Mikko is satisfied with the move that has been under negotiations for some time.
– We have noticed that we have complementary expertise and similar mindset in doing things. In addition, MDI gives a natural home to the evaluation and consulting of public sector activities we have operated in Tempo Economics, Mikko notes.
MDI’s Managing Director Tommi Ranta is thrilled with the new arrivals.
– Signing of Mikko and Juho gives us more torque in our ongoing and future projects. In particular, the pair reinforces our research-oriented approach and methodological know-how. I’m sure our capability of providing our customers with insightful consultancy is significantly better now, Tommi states.
– With joint forces we can better serve our existing and future customers, Mikko ends with a smile.
Mikko and Juho join the team as specialists October 1st, 2017. At the same time, MDI invites Mikko as a partner.
