Symbio has announced that VP for Technologies Mika Muukkonen has been appointed as Managing Director for Symbio’s U.S. and Europe business units covering Symbio’s global deliveries effective immediately.
Muukkonen has been working at Symbio for more than 8 years, first coming on board to Symbio Chengdu in 2012 as a Solution Architect. Shortly thereafter, he took the responsibility of Symbio’s SW Development & Delivery from China and the delivery center in Chengdu. Over the years he has managed Symbio’s global delivery centers and led business engagements in various areas, including scoping, prototyping, hacking, and identifying the correct technology solutions to match our customers’ needs.
“This is a challenge I’m glad to take head-on,” Said Muukkonen. “I’m looking forward to being able to contribute some of my experience working on Symbio’s global services as well as working closely with VXI on software solutions delivery to help build a true, high-value, and highly profitable global services package. In addition to that, having lived in China for the past 12 years, I have to say that it will be an emotional moment to return to Finland as well.”
Muukkonen has been heading Symbio’s Global/U.S. Business Unit (GUBU) while based in China. With this assignment, he will be hands-on in taking the next crucial steps on Symbio Finland’s way forward.
