  1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?

Vaisala has always been an innovation and technology driven company with a strong customer focus.  We work closely with many pilot customers in order to help us bring new products to market.  In this process we discover new insights and best practices and are always looking for new ways to share our latest findings with other industry experts.

  1. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?

The concept of moisture movement within transformers is pretty well known in the industry however what’s less understood are the finer points related to how it happens, what it means, and how it’s measured.  I really enjoy taking a complex, confusing topic and helping to bring clarity to it by presenting new ideas and perspectives to a diverse audience.

  1. How did you get into the industry and what do you most enjoy about your role?

My background in chemical engineering served me well in understanding gas and liquid measurement applications however I knew from a very early point in my career that the “traditional engineer” role wasn’t going to suit me.  I moved pretty quickly to being on the front lines of business development and engaging with market leaders about new technologies & trends and applying that information to product development – this was a much better fit for my personality and interests.

  1. What are you hoping to achieve in the future in your personal and professional life?

The most important thing for me now and in the future is to always maintain the proper balance of time with my family and work that is meaningful and challenging to me.

  1. How do you relax in your leisure time?

The best way for me to recharge my batteries is to be active in nature – I’m an avid skier, hiker, backpacker, runner, and mountain biker.
