MEET THE CEO – KAIJA SELLMAN, TOSIBOX
We met Kaija just as she was taking on the CEO role at Tosibox six months ago. After working together with Kaija, and the team, toward finalizing the investment, it’s clear Tosibox is lucky to have her. Kaija brings 25 years of enterprise software experience across sales, marketing, customer success and overall management. She held several leadership positions at IBM Nordic and IBM Finland driving revenue and growth in multiple commercial segments. Through her leadership positions she learned how to lead multinational diverse teams to achieve business objectives. Her extensive international experience from leading technology-driven businesses is evident in her day-to-day activities. Since Tosibox leverage a global network of channel partners, Kaija’s experience with re-sellers and other services firms is invaluable. She’s a big believer in the strength of partnerships with clients by building long customer relationships and business partner eco-systems as growth drivers. She emphasizes building high performing teams with diversity to deliver company targets.
