Welcome back to the Meet our People – series. This time we will introduce our newest addition to the Sales team, Katja Isohanni.

Present yourself briefly

“My name is Katja Isohanni and I will be working with the global key accounts at Variantum. In my free time, I like to explore the world by traveling. I would call myself also “a gourmet” and when I have time, I love to conjure up the most delicious meals for my friends. I also enjoy going to restaurants. This autumn, I have spent most of my free time in the forest collecting mushrooms. In addition, reading brings me great satisfaction as well as some combat sports like boxing that I try to exercise as much as possible. It offers a good balance to work.”

What kind of jobs have you had before?

“I have senior-level experience from project management in the engineering & machinery industry where I have been working last ten years. Before that, I was also working in Finnish Embassy in Moscow. Sales tasks are not new to me either. As a project manager, I, of course, worked with very many global key accounts but I have tried also new customer acquisition in a small consulting company.”

How did you end up at Variantum?

“Because of mergers and acquisitions, I lost my workplace. However, I saw this rather as a chance to have something new. It was time to move my career forward anyway. I was seeking a new industry where I could use my existing skills and be even more close to customers. So, I took part in the education program about B2B sales and here I am now: in the ICT sector with some fascinating sales work in front of me.”

What have the first days been like?

“I am really excited about all new things and tasks related to this field of business. People are sharing information openly and asking my opinions, too. I felt instantly that I belong here.”

Why this job is a good fit for you?

“This job provides me demanding, new challenges while taking full advantage of my previous learning outcomes. I also hope to bring some new perspective to this business and company that I strongly believe will flourish even more in the future.”
