The empowerment and level of freedom that Linxon offers its people are also what keeps Finn inspired. “As a Project Manager with us, you are the ‘CEO’ of your project. Everyone who is part of our team has their own responsibilities – expectations are high, and you can have an important impact and see the result of your work,” he says.
Finn joined Linxon in January 2021, and has previously held roles in sales, operations and project management at Linxon’s parent Hitachi ABB Power Grids as well as being Business Unit Manager for energy company OMEXOM. In his current role, he is responsible for the overall performance and execution of Linxon’s projects in the Nordics. One of his priorities is proactive safety work, and he underlines that “everyone involved in our projects has the right to come home safe, not just today but every day!”
In turn, he believes in giving his team members ownership, enabling them to grow and develop with their tasks while providing the necessary framework and guidance. “As a leader, it’s important to be transparent in my expectations and feedback, and to follow up and create support for each individual, for example by putting a senior project manager together with a more junior assistant project manager. Ultimately, my aim is for my team to enjoy their work, have fun and perform well together.”
