Markku has raised over $40 million in the social impact sector, working with over 20 organizations. Markku is passionate about helping CEOs and Leadership Teams develop and implement an organization's strategic and operating system and realize sustained growth. 

A self-proclaimed outdoor fanatic, Markku believes that he was a mountaineer in another life. If he could invent a holiday, it would be called ‘Celebrate Outdoors,’ and people would be encouraged to spend time with friends and family in nature. He can often be found sailing, paddling canoes, camping in the wilderness, or taking his dog Blu for long walks. If he weren’t so darn good at his job, he’d probably be leading sailing, kayaking, and hiking trips in the summer and backcountry or cross-country skiing trips in the winter. 

Markku is a forward-thinking, big-picture strategist that can visualize the final product, goal, or experience and intuitively know how to get there. His most significant career or work-related accomplishment was helping to establish A Rocha as an environmental nonprofit in Canada with over 40 staff. He’s also pretty proud of growing his consulting business here at Kaci and the great people he works with.

Markku has been project managing and leading organizations for over 30 years. Within Kaci, he engages with clients to help create a strategy and comes alongside CEOs and Leadership Teams. What he likes most about working as CEOs and Leadership Teams is the people, specifically leadership teams and theiincredible passion and dedication. The values that drive Markku are connection, community, compassion, and being constructive.

If you want to join our team of superstar clients, his advice would be to “bring yourself, laughter and initiative!” And if you asked him what his favourite part of work is, he’d say, “I love connecting with clients and learning about their organizations. I also really love coming alongside CEOs and Leadership Teams.”
