Marianna Bom, Chief Financial Officer
'Before I joined the university in 2009, I had done a long career in international financial management positions in the corporate world, at Nokia and Kone. For me Aalto was definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: an inspiring vantage point from where I can serve Finnish competitiveness and this innovative community with the help of my own skills and knowledge.
As Chief Financial Officer my task is to advance the long-term prerequisites for the operation of the university by making sure that the university's finances are on a sustainable foundation. Important themes include the expansion of the university's financial base, the development of a transparent internal funding model that promotes Aalto's competitiveness, as well as efficient and professional services.
What I like best in my work are inspiring challenges and the people – the Aalto community. Every morning when I arrive at the campus I think about the meaningful work that we do at Aalto.’
