Career Story: Antti Hurme

Antti Hurme
Global Account Manager
Vantaa, Finland

My name is Antti Hurme and I started at Marioff in 2009. My education is M.Sc. (Tech), I studied at Tampere University of Technology majoring in fluid power engineering, and my minors were industrial management and product development. During my studies I always pictured myself working in a Research & Development team, and an interesting research engineer position opened at Marioff just the right time.

Marioff has an open, multicultural work community, which contributes to the inspiring work environment we have.

In my current role as a global account manager, I develop existing and find new global key accounts to ensure profitable growth in the power and food industries. My goal is to ensure a successful customer experience and global consistency in HI-FOG® water mist fire suppression offering. I build business relationships with global key accounts to understand their businesses now and in the future which will enable Marioff to grow with other industry leaders. Global key accounts are served with constant cooperation between global sales network, marketing and R&D.

The best part of my work is cooperating with professionals in sales, product development and marketing with different backgrounds to make sure that the HI-FOG® products and services meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.

Prior to my present position, I worked in a business development team in two positions. Marioff’s business development team focuses on developing and promoting HI-FOG® water mist fire suppression technology and I was responsible of the industry and energy segment. I joined the company as a research engineer and my main tasks were HI-FOG® component research and full scale fire tests. I have really enjoyed the possibility to work in several positions at Marioff.

Employees are encouraged to bring forward their ideas and feedback. In addition, Marioff supports work-based learning and work rotation, which enables professional development and provides great career opportunities.
