Jari Ullakko to head Avaus’ new Pan-Nordic Creative Studio

Press Releases   •   Sep 01, 2017 07:11 BST

Avaus Marketing Innovations, a fast growing Nordic marketing technology and services provider, is betting big on Nordic creative development by hiring Jari Ullakko as Chief Creative Officer. Ullakko will be in charge of setting up the new Avaus Pan-Nordic Creative Studio. Jari has a long award-winning career as a Creative Director of Lowe Brindfors, Founding Partner of Swedish Grow and Chief Creative Officer of Finnish SEK & Grey.

Ullakko says that while everyone is buzzing about martech data and content, up until recently very few agencies knew how to combine them to measurable business results.

“Markets have become conversations, and I believe that during my years in top creative agencies in different markets I have learned a thing or two about how to create engaging stuff that people love for its own sake for the benefit of both themselves and the marketer”, says Ullakko. He is convinced that marketing today is primarily about initiating conversations that leave traces in the form of data.

“Avaus has proprietary technologies and knowledge about harvesting the data, making sense of it and grinding insights out of it. My job is to build a creative collective to merge it with compelling brand actions and storytelling”, says Ullakko.

Formally trained as an Industrial Designer, Ullakko has a 30-year experience in international brand building. He is a co-founder of brand agency Grow and has previously been a Partner and Creative Director of Lowe Brindfors. At SEK & Grey he has been playing an active part of Grey Europe creative development. His background and knowledge of Nordic markets and creative community is an obvious asset in developing Avaus’ Pan-Nordic Creative collective co-located in Stockholm and Helsinki.

During his career, Ullakko has been in charge of award winning work for several major Nordic and international brands such as Audi, Saab Automobile, Scandinavian Airlines, Electrolux, Helly Hansen, Lexus Europe, Finnair and Fazer. Ullakko will start at Avaus on September 1st.

Avaus Recognized as European Fast Growth Company

Press Releases   •   May 09, 2017 08:40 BST

Avaus Marketing Innovations has been chosen as a member of the Fast Growth Icons network for European fast-growing businesses. The network consists of scale-ups, i.e. companies that grow by over 50% per year with revenues of more than 15 M€ and with the potential to reach 100 M€.

According to Fast Growth Icons founder Ben Fletcher,­­ membership is recognition that Avaus is one of the most interesting and successful growth businesses in the Nordic region: “We welcome Avausand congratulate the company on being selected. It’s a really impressive achievement. We look forward to seeing their business flourish in the future.”

Fletcher says that Europe has been challenging the success of Silicon Valley during recent years and is now maturing into a vibrant tech ecosystem. VCs from across the globe recognize the potential of many European tech hubs, such as Berlin, London, and Amsterdam.

“Europe has been producing successful startups for many years now. However, the hurdles that we face of growing a $100m+ business are still very high and Europe is playing catch up with the US in the unicorn creation tables.”

Fast Growth Icons’ mission is to bridge the gap from startups to large-scale businesses. The network brings together fast growing businesses from across Europe, such as Amorelie, Liefery, Flixbus, Ratepay, N26, Outfittery, Carmundi, PayONE, SumUp, and WeFox. At Fast Growth Icons’ events, scale-ups share practical insights and experiences among themselves.

Avaus is an invited participant at the 2017 Berlin event on May 18th. The event will host well-known and established speakers such as Markus Fuhrmann, Founder of Delivery Hero, and Rolf Schroemgens, Founder of Trivago.
