Juha Tennivaara

Business Development Manager

I’ve had the opportunity to work for over 12 years in a wide range of positions at Yaskawa Environmental Energy / The Switch. I’ve also been able to work in many locations, including Lappeenranta, Vaasa, Helsinki and China.

Currently, I’m responsible for business development – especially focusing on growing our marine business. In addition to my daily work, I have had a great opportunity to further educate myself by enrolling in LUT University’s Executive MBA program.

I really enjoy working in a fast-paced company that has a clear focus on electrifying the world. An agile and flexible working environment combined with megatrends that support the company’s vision are a good match for my own personal passion.

Traveling is a big part of my job. I travel mostly to visit customers and to our factory locations. It’s a demanding job, but I find my work-life balance to be in good shape. I like traveling for pleasure as well, not only just for business.

On top of that, I play golf and am involved in other sports. I also enjoy relaxing at home in my spare time.
