25 Fellows for 25 Years: Timo Laaksonen

F-Secure Life

infogAs 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 the Vice President of our Content Cloud initiative Timo Laaksonen who joined F-Secure in 2012.

Where were you 25 years ago?

Relatively fresh off Business School, a few years in work life. Exactly 25 years ago I was a sales manager at Nokia Data in Turku, Finland, responsible for the travel business segment, i.e. hotels, cruising lines, travel agencies, airlines, etc. A bachelor still, no kids. Actively playing volleyball at the time.

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

The fantastic energy, excitement and innovation that my fellows have shown in building content cloud business.

What’s your favorite piece of technology? 

My mobile phone. Can’t live without it!

What F-Secure memory is most irreplaceable to you?

Those moments with our operator partners where we have shared the excitement of entering the personal cloud business, together.

How will the world be different in 25 years?

Smaller, still. Travel, communication, interaction will be many times easier than it is today breaking down artificial barriers between people, businesses and nations as we get closer to each other. The world will be one of interwoven interests, networks and opportunities. As long as we respect the nature in all our decisions the world will be a very good place in 25 years from now.    

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

My wish for all the people in F-Secure: Live, love and learn – to your full potential.
