Jenni Suominen Profile

Meet Jenni

Jenni Suominen

Strategist

JOURNEY
I graduated in 2008 after studying marketing and services in retail trade. I started my media agency career back in 2007 at Aegis Media (current Dentsu Aegis) and worked later as a digital and strategic planner until beginning of 2017 at Carat.
 
TODAY
In my current role in OMD as a strategist I help our clients reach commercial growth through marketing comms, and together with our awesome and talented Annalect-team we help our clients with portfolio, price and distribution related matters, too.
 
THE OMD EXPERIENCE
I believe in team work, and that I can always count on the help of our 60 and more experts no matter what the client’s challenge in marketing might be.
 
OUT OF OFFICE
I seek balance to work from Crossfit (even a couch potato can transform into a sports lover with the right type of sport), binge watching Netflix and HBO and travelling somewhere warm with clear scuba diving waters at least once a year.

Petri Karppinen

Media Director

JOURNEY
I graduated in 1998 from university where I studied marketing. I started my media agency career at Carat 15 years ago. My main responsibility at OMD is trading.

THE OMD EXPERIENCE
“There is nothing as stable as change”. Almost every day at OMD is different to the one before, and working with smart, energetic and creative people is such a great experience. Being part of OMD feels like being part of the winning team.

SAGE ADVICE
“Leave future problems for the future”. It works, if not always then often. In addition, “no pain, no gain” is very true.

INSPIRATION TACTICS
I find it’s always the people around me who inspire me. They are talented and eager to be challenged, so you need to make sure you’re awake. I often walk around the agency to talk to as many different people in different positions as I can.

Emma-Lotta Laine

Account Manager

JOURNEY
My media agency career started in 2002 as a trainee at Carat Finland and I have followed the same exciting path since that. After the trainee period, I have been working and gaining a lot of valuable experience in the media field both in Finland and in Sweden. On top of my existing BBA/BA double degree in Business Administration I studied further and graduated as a M.Sc. Economics from Hanken in 2016 majoring in Marketing. I started working at OMD Finland as an Account Manager in the beginning of 2015.
 
THE OMD EXPERIENCE
At OMD Finland I am an Account Manager for various domestic and international clients. Through having clients from different fields of business I can utilize my vast international and domestic experience. It is very inspiring to find the best solutions for the clients with my colleagues who have a lot of talent and experience.

 
INSPIRATION TACTICS
My inspiration for work comes from the interesting clients I am working with and from the inspiring atmosphere at OMD Finland. I am a true people person and a team player: I get a lot of satisfaction when I see that my colleagues are happy and motivated and enjoy working together. Outside work I get a kick out of sports: gym, running, swimming, yoga and so on. When I am not doing sports, I can presumably be found taking photographs.

Iiris Antinoja

Junior Account Manager

JOURNEY
I started working at OMD in 2014 as a video trainee with no specific experience from the field. During these 2,5 years I’ve grown from a media business rookie to a professional with a vast understanding of different media specializing in video and TV. In addition, I act as an Junior Account Manager with both big and smaller clients. I have a degree in Business majoring in Marketing and Corporate Communications, and minoring in Communications. It’s great to be able to apply also these skills in my work.
 
THE OMD EXPERIENCE
The best part of OMD is the great people I work with. You can always be sure that there’s someone to help you out when you’re in need and to cheer with you when you nail it. Also, the perks of working in a big company are the excellent opportunities to develop and constantly learn new things. It’s difficult to name an industry I haven’t worked with, so it’s quite awesome to have experience from such a wide variety.
 
INSPIRATION TACTICS
In my free time I like to balance the hectic work days by playing basketball, running and relaxing with B class TV-series. I’ve always been interested in the creative industry, so it’s superb that there are competitions for young media professionals that allow you to try your wings in a bit more creative way. My team mate and I have successfully taken part in a few by winning gold in Young Creatives Finland 2015 and bronze in AdProfit Junior 2017. And honestly, the process is so much fun in itself that it’s almost irrelevant whether you win or not.
