Lassi Lankinen – the enthusiastic addition to our sales team

Hi, nice to meet you, you can call me Lassi. For Asians, the name usually associates with the Indian Yogurt drink (Mango Lassi is my fav) and North Americans usually think about Lassie the dog, when hearing my name. 😁

Recently I watched a Netflix documentary about Michael Jordan. The inspiring series sparked an idea in my head – I too must find my winning team. 🏀 I have been a Finders Seekers fanboy since 2018 and in my heart I know I am part of a winning team now. I am at home. 

Why join Finders Seekers?

 🥇 The best work atmosphere in the world
 🚀 International ambitions
💎 Top talent
🎢 Amazing growth story
💡 Employer Branding and recruitment is close to my heart

Right from the first day, it was obvious that we are a TEAM. Everyone lives and breathes our mission and it is always a pleasure to come to the office. Waking up in the morning is exciting when you sell a service you truly believe in. 

My role at Finders Seekers

As a part of the sales team, I help our customers buy the right services from us to build their winning team. I work as the jack of all trades when it comes to sales. From day to day sales activities with prospects to improving processes and how we use technology to support sales. If your role entails recruitment or you are concerned about how to keep excelling in finding the right talent do not hesitate to send me a message!

What do I bring to the Finders Seekers family? 

I started my sales career at an early age. My father is an entrepreneur and I joined him in construction fairs to convince consumers and resellers about the superiority of the central vacuum systems he was selling. With me, I bring years of experience from living in different countries. I have lived in Minnesota, Dusseldorf, Dublin, Utrecht, Amsterdam, and London. I have over 10 years of B2B sales and sales leadership experience. 

I am a storyteller, and I have plenty of eventful, adventurous stories from around the world.  How did I end up running down a mountain in Hiroshima during a storm wearing only a plastic bag? Ask me and find out. 😁 I also bring my peculiar sense of humor which lights up the room I am in. 

If I had to choose my two favorite quotes they would be: 

“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” ― Eckhart Tolle

“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”  ― Anthony Bourdain

When I am not working you can find me on the slopes snowboarding, on the ice playing ice hockey, or being a nerd at home playing CIV6 on my PC. 😊 I also love going to electronic music festivals. If you want to play CIV with me or perhaps go to a festival, do not hesitate to get in touch with me!
