Tikka will also become member of the Group Management Team and Board of Directors as well as one of the Group's owners. Mr. Joonas Kiminki, former MD of Wunderkraut Finland, will remain responsible for named large clients and further business development.

"I am very excited to be joining Wunderkraut, a rocket growth company. It operates in areas where my core skills and competences lie such as ICT, international business and networking," says Taneli Tikka, the newly appointed Managing Director of Wunderkraut Finland and the Baltics. "It is thrilling to join a business moving forward at an accelerating pace, yet sizeable enough to deliver large customer solutions. Wunderkraut Finland is also the most rapidly growing company of the Group," Tikka says.

It has developed a wide range of web solutions based on Drupal's open source platform in different sectors for customers such as IKEA, Finnish Red Cross, German Foreign Office, Nokia Siemens Networks, National Land Survey of Finland, Suzuki Belgium, and a large number of media houses.

Profitable growth has been boosted by our exceptionally high customer and employee satisfaction," says Vesa Palmu, major owner and CEO of Wunderkraut Group, based out of London. "We approach customer projects from a business perspective instead of technology first. We are proud to welcome an experienced serial entrepreneur such as Taneli Tikka into our team to run the Finland and Baltics business which is one of our largest insofar as headcount is concerned," Palmu concludes.
