ENTREPRENEURIAL NARRATIVES ARE CONSTRUCTED IN DETERMINED TEAM WORK

I am the CEO of Canelco. I have three decades of experience in working in small and medium-sized enterprises. Over the years, I have participated in over 100 corporate restructuring processes. I believe that success requires people’s strong commitment and extensive competence. Achieving set goals also demands people’s ability to cooperate. Companies’ success stories depend on people.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND SUCCESS
REQUIRE CONSTANT RENEWAL

Constant renewal creates conditions for companies’ success and sustainable increase in value. Companies’ success is built with the help of competent people. I have over two decades of experience in the strategic development of small and medium-sized enterprises. Renewal requires effort and investment in the future. I believe that courage is necessary to produce better results for companies and their owners.

JOINING EXPERIENCE TO YOUTHFUL ENTHUSIASM PRODUCES SUCCESS

I know what entrepreneurship is and what developing a company requires. For over three decades, I worked as an entrepreneur and manager. The development of my business culminated in listing the company. The success of a company requires bringing together the competence of different generations. The versatility brought by experience and the energy of youth create an environment that promotes growth. I build networks useful in business development. I will help you in board work, management, and preparing and implementing your company’s strategy.

GREAT RESULTS REQUIRE GOAL-ORIENTED AND COMPETENT PEOPLE

I have over 35 years of experience in working in small, medium-sized and large-scale industry companies. Setting clear goals and working in cooperation are the keys to success for today’s business life. In addition to suitable diversity among team members, developing a company requires constant strategy improvement. I have experience in serving as a member or chair of the board of around 40 companies.

ACHIEVING GOALS REQUIRES
COMMITTED INDIVIDUALS

The main resource of companies that achieve goals and realise plans lies in individuals. A well-functioning accounting and reporting system provides management and staff with information about the company’s performance. I have nearly two decades of experience in managerial reporting, and internal and external accounting. In our investee companies, I work as a partner for the leadership and financial management personnel in different projects related to renewing the enterprises’ financial management or leadership systems. I believe that goal-oriented management produces great results and creates wellbeing for the entire company.
