Hannele said, "I'm looking forward to leading the Nordic operations from Helsinki - working within such a technically astute and innovative region provides an exciting opportunity. Establishing a Nordic headquarters demonstrates BravoSolution's commitment to providing truly localised and experience-based services for the many innovative businesses in this region."
