The Background of the Entrepreneur

The woman behind DTO is me, Susanna Sakko. I received a doctorate in Economics and Business Administration in 2015, majoring in management and organization. I have a long history as an entrepreneur and as a supervisor in municipal organizations. The management and efficient completion of multiple concurrent projects is routine for me. In my various tasks, I have received positive feedback especially for my good negotiation skills and my solution-oriented, supportive way of working.
My motto is: ”The sea doesn’t need to be smooth as long as the sailor has skill.”
