I joined Philips in 1984. Since 1991 I have been working in the area of improvement and innovation of software development processes. In more than twenty years I have gained a broad experience in this area both in and outside Philips. From 2009 to mid 2012 I have been COO of the InnoHub in the city of Espoo, Finland. The InnoHub has been an initiative of Philips and VTT to boost innovation of products and services in the area of health, well-being and lifestyle in Nordic and Baltic countries. Currently I head the Innovation Consulting group in Philips Finland, and supports Philips Group Innovation in the area of medical device development.
