Where do the brightest industrial engineering students go when they can’t decide between pursuing a career at a top-tier consulting firm or working at a startup? We’d like to think Columbia Road offers the best of both worlds.
This was the case for Toni Laitila, a razor-sharp consulting promise from Aalto University. Toni is known for his work at Slush, Metso, and Sievo—as well as his A-level grades.
Toni Laitila joins Columbia Road as an Associate and is responsible for Growth Consulting. He is working with big Finnish corporations as well as the hottest startups, such as the collaborative economy startup Sharetribe.
“I'm really excited to be part of Columbia Road. Working here is a great chance to learn from the best in the digital business. It’s rewarding to get to guide our customers in the areas they need the most help with,” says Associate Toni Laitila.
“We are very excited to recruit young star Toni to our team. His ability to grasp new business problems in complex business contexts has amazed us all,” comments Sampo Hämäläinen, Managing Partner at Columbia Road.
During his free time, Toni runs and goes to the gym, reads non-fiction novels and binge-watches Better Call Saul and The Office. Toni’s interest in Dunder Mifflin’s business might also be the reason why he is so good at transforming paper-based businesses into digital ones with Schrute-like dedication and passion.
