Een nieuwe CFO

Sinds 1 maart hebben we een nieuwe CFO aan boord bij Heeros.
Hij stelt zichzelf graag even voor:

My name is Juho Pakkanen, and I’ve recently started working as the CFO at Heeros Oyj.

My latest job before Heeros was at advertising agency 358, where I acted as CFO since spring 2017. Previously I was working as a Business Controller at Fonecta for about 5 years, and I’ve also been a Controller at both FCG and SITA Finland, so I have strong experience in management accounting in various industries.

During my career I have been involved in several development projects. Among the big achievements is introduction of Fonecta B2B business reporting model. The lessons learned are undoubtedly useful at Heeros. My experience in financial management also helps our product development, as I can look at services from the customer’s point of view.

The biggest challenges at the moment are related to forecasting, we need to improve predictability. In order to forecast reliably, we need to understand our current situation better. We have the information needed for reporting, but it’s too scattered.

What will be my first focus areas? There are several development ideas concerning e.g. invoicing and financial reporting, the first thing is to pick up these low-hanging fruits. Heeros has also developed its HR management, and this good development will continue. Future looks promising; instead of threats, I see more opportunities.
