On maternity leave

One has to dream. And one must stand out from the rest.

Armi Ratia

My name is Sallamaarit Markkanen and at Blic...

My work week is filled with responsibilities of an account manager, as well as following closely the events in Finnish politics and taking care of Blic’s external communications. I have experience from many diverse projects, ranging from food products to ICT and grocery retail. I’m at my best in challenging projects, where I can use my creativity and where can come up with new ideas.

My political career began at the local, municipal level in Siilinjärvi. Over the years, I have served in various positions of trust e.g., in the European Parliament, the Ministry of Education and Culture and in the board of the Center Party. I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and I have also studied social sciences.

Besides my creativity and excellent organizational skills, I bring humour from the wonderful Savo region to the Blic’s team!
