We’re excited to announce our newest addition to the team: Patrik Pehrsson! Patrik joins Silo.AI to lead Finance & Control activities, and to support our journey in becoming the European flagship AI company.
Prior to Silo.AI, Patrik has held a series of progressively expanding finance roles at Nokia, Microsoft and Innofactor. He was CFO for Microsoft Finland and before that held a number of Business Controller roles at Microsoft and Nokia.
After Microsoft, Patrik was Executive Vice President and CFO at Innofactor Oyj in Finland, with full finance and statutory responsibility for the Nasdaq Helsinki listed company. In the past year, Patrik has been a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Business Management and Analytics at Arcada, and will also continue in this role.
Patrik has had an extensive career in finance, during which he has helped companies navigate through growth and change. Accordingly, with a strong background and experience in relevant C-level finance roles, Patrik will be helping the company to steer operations in rapid growth.
– I first met Peter a year ago at Arcada when he gave a presentation on AI and the company. I was really impressed by the ambition and expertise of Silo.AI and think it is great that I now can take part in and contribute to the journey, says Patrik.
– It’s exciting to hop aboard now that the clients seem to invest more into their AI development and we’re on a good path for growth. From my experience building a sustainable, fast-growing business operation around services and products, like Silo.AI has done, requires trust and partnerships, but also an early focus on the company’s core processes and finances, Patrik comments.
In his new role Patrik will be taking the lead of financial planning, analysis and control, working closely with Business Controller Sari Jormanainen and the leadership.
Our CEO Peter Sarlin is thrilled to welcome Patrik and believes his experience will be a great addition to the team:
– We’re extremely happy to get Patrik to support our growth toward the European market, and steer operations when pushing forward. His expertise in operations and finance in fast-paced environments and experience of international operations will help us take the company to the next phase.
It’s great to have you onboard, Patrik!
