‍Background

Prior to co-founding DevCo, Otto worked at RIT Capital Partners as responsible for their private investments portfolio and at Merrill Lynch International with focus on Nordic M&A Background
Before DevCo, I was based in London working both in investment banking as well as private equity. I had the opportunity to work on projects and with people from all around the world.

Why DevCo?

I find it rewarding to interact with highly driven people, both privately as well as professionally. During the past few years, I have spent a significant amount of time supporting the positive development of Vexve, also in the role of interim CEO when we acquired the company from Jarmo Nieminen. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to call the people at Vexve and DevCo my colleagues -  my work feels more like a lifestyle rather than a job.
