My name is Riina Nevamäki and at Blic...

I’m a public affairs and communication specialist with more than 20 years of experience. As a partner my competence and knowledge is based on my work in both national level in the Nordic countries as well as at the EU level. I have been leading processes and preparations in creating government and company positions for various complex issues. On the basis of my long experience, I can easily interpret societal changes and see a larger picture of the actual political environment in the continuously developing regulatory landscape.

I have a long experience from the politics. From 2002 until 2019 I worked in different positions as a state secretary and special advisor in the ministries. Almost ten years I served the Prime Minister’s Office. The latest in 2015-2019 I was the Head of Cabinet for the Prime Minister Sipilä. After politics I was a partner in another public affairs firm in Helsinki and thereafter served almost three years as a Nordic Public Affairs lead for Nordea Bank Ab. I’m very used to cooperating with Nordic colleagues and leading Nordic public affairs projects.

I’m an enthusiastic and quick learner with positive and solution-oriented mindset and a person who can handle a lot of pressure. Outside the working life I’m interested in sport like skiing, football, running and gymnastic exercises. I have 12-year old twins and I’m also very active in their sport hobbies.
