25 Fellows for 25 Years: Miska Repo

F-Secure Life

As we celebrate our 25th anniversary over the next month, we’re paying tribute to the women and men who helped build the success story that is F-Secure. You can experience that story here and help us fight malware in our anniversary arcade game.

Today we speak to Miska Repo, the Country Manager for Italy, who joined F-Secure in 2004.

Where were you 25 years ago?

25 years ago I was spending my summer months in Switzerland. Great time, and a lot of nice memories…

What’s surprised you most since you’ve joined F-Secure?

The thing that has surprised me most is the global F-Secure spirit we have in the company. Great people, great company!

What’s your favorite piece of technology?

My favourite piece of technology is my smartphone. What you can do with it nowadays? But right after that comes the espresso machine we have in the office 😉

What F-Secure memory is most irreplaceable to you?

The most irreplaceable memory for me must be the successful market entry to Italy and the hard work related to that. As a consequence of that I won the F-Secure Country Manager of the Year award in 2006 which was a very nice recognition from the company for me and my team.

How will the world be different in 25 years?

I think in the end we will all have our everyday problems and joys in 25 years time like we have today, so the world will probably not be much different than it is today. Of course technology develops as we speak and probably it will bring some cool new things to everybody. Waiting for those supersonic solar powered flying cars… 🙂

What’s your 25th birthday wish for F-Secure?

I wish prosperity to F-Secure and all its employees, partners, and customers around the world who in the end make the company as it is today. Keep on innovating!
