Timo Lehtimäki

I've been around for a while. My longest single endeavour was a 28 year long period as an entrepreneur in health and social security business. When not working, I resort to sports - also in managerial positions. With Kare it's my job to handle investor relations and investor network. If you get a call from me, I most likely have an interesting company to present to you.
