Spinverse team recently got together to shortly meet up with most of the colleagues face-to-face (keeping a safe distance). We wanted to raise a toast to this year’s successes and most of all, to our Consultant Vilja Vara, who reached a milestone of 10 years with Spinverse this autumn.
When Vilja first joined Spinverse back in 2010, Spinverse was a much smaller company in a much smaller office than what we have today. When Vilja, a M. Sc. in Chemical Technology from Aalto University School of Science and Technology, started at Spinverse, she was working as a coordinator in various large ecosystems and R&D programs ensuring that everything runs smoothly in events and other activities. Spinverse’s Managing Director Laura Koponen and Principal Consultant Markku Heino worked with Vilja at the time — and still do. They agree that when Vilja is at the reins to take care of project coordination, project activities are always running well, as all the bits and pieces are kept together.
Today, Vilja mostly works in the program partner team for two different Business Finland programs (Smart Life Finland and Personalized Health Finland) but offers her valuable support to other projects as well. Upon receiving her Chamber of Commerce anniversary pin for her 10-year service (and a lovely bouquet of flowers), she said that she has not only gathered a lot of experience in coordinating and running very interesting projects but has also got wonderful colleagues with whom she has become good friends over the years.
Everyone in the Spinverse team congratulates Vilja — keep up the good work!
