To become Finland’s leading digital agency by 2020, Evermade has appointed Sami Relander (43, PhD) as its new CEO. Relander is a digital industry veteran with over 20 years of experience. Previously Relander served as the CEO of Frantic.
According to Relander, “Evermade was the easy and obvious choice for me: they have unmatched technical quality and attention to detail, exciting clients, and the nicest people working in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. I’ve been welcomed with open arms and look forward to the challenge ahead.”
Julius Haukkasalo, one of the founders of Evermade and the outgoing CEO, will now focus on his new role as director of sales and marketing.
“Having Sami as a part of our team was a no-brainer for us. We were looking for someone to help us take our growth and development to the next level, and people with his experience and smarts are few and far between,” says Haukkasalo.
Evermade employs over 25 professionals and is profitable, debt free, and holds an AAA credit rating.
