I’ve been blessed with many opportunities to advance in my career at Beamex and had no real reason to apply for any senior role outside the Beamex organization
“I’ve been able to fulfill most of my professional goals at Beamex”, says Juha Salimäki, one of the Beamex Business Professionals, who has worked for nearly 17 years at Beamex Oy Ab in various roles and locations across the world. I have a commercial background and more than 15 years of experience as an entrepreneur in multiple business sectors and this mix of expertise and experience I have been able to utilize and take advantage of during my professional journey at Beamex.
When I started to work at Beamex in 2001, I was first involved with our marketing and sales department as an all-rounder and gradually grew more into sales focused roles. During the years I’ve held the titles of Sales Engineer, Area Sales Manager and Sales Director. In my current position as Director at the Beamex headquarter, located in Pietarsaari on the West coast of Finland, I’m responsible for our sales and operations in Africa, Middle East, India and Asia. We have several sales support offices located across these regions, which I am also responsible for. We have a multi-cultural team of entrepreneurial minded professionals with whom I enjoy working with. It is the blend of people and personalities that make us the best in our field.
I have been also on a couple of multi-year expat assignments in India and in the Middle East and have collected a lot of experience while working in different countries and cultures and have been able to utilize and benefit of these great experiences in my work.
“I’ve been blessed with many opportunities to advance in my career at Beamex and had no real reason to apply for any senior role outside the Beamex organization”. First of all, one needs to have ambition and long-term goals but also realism in expectations especially when it comes to the timing of next career advances, not all will have the same opportunities, but it also depends very much on the person itself and how actively one seeks to pursue new possibilities. Since the company has grown a lot during the years, such possibilities have become possible.
With almost two decades behind me at Beamex, I still can see many new and exciting challenges coming on my professional path at this wonderful company and can see myself working here also in the future.
Hope to see you onboard the Beamex Team someday!
