"Most fulfilling situations are those challenges when you get to create something from scratch to a customers’ specific need. "

Antti Lahti works at ARNON Vaasa office as Offering Manager. He creates innovative offering strategies and defines what each offering requires technically. This means that his job is to find out what type of technology would be needed to bring each offering into reality. To create offering roadmaps, he needs to consider the development path right from the starting phase to the wanted end result.

Antti has almost finished his Bachelor of Engineering studies focusing on information and communications technology, and he will be celebrating his graduation next spring.

Antti is very customer service oriented. He describes his best traits as understanding the customers’ needs and knowing how to map them. “To understand the technical specifications is obviously crucial, but one thing that also helps me is the colorful sales experience I have from my previous career. I don’t get perplexed very easily.”

"Most fulfilling situations are those challenges when you get to create something from scratch to a customers’ specific need. "

“To date, I have mostly worked on Wärtsilä projects, but this is going to change somewhat slightly in the future. The best project I have been involved in is ongoing, but I guess it’s better not to talk about it. Most fulfilling situations are those challenges when you get to create something from scratch to a customers’ specific need. You get to come up with a prototype that solves that particular problem.”

Antti is mostly an easy-going guy, but he can be somewhat extreme when he wants to be. For example, one time he arrived at a friend’s birthday party using a parachute. But this was back in the day. Nowadays he levels his brain by going to the shooting range or doing jigsaw puzzles. Imagine doing both at the same time.
