A fun fact about me: When I was a kid I used to be a little bit scared of dogs but rest assure the furry dogs part of our family nowadays have taken care of not scaring me anymore. It is actually a really nice exercise playing and walking around with our dogs and as an added value one might get to restore their furniture.

Heli Vendelin, Marketing and Management Coordinator
I am the one who brings to life the marketing of Primehotels. I either create myself or coordinate with our partners the content for our marketing and social media channels.
The best part of my job is its versatility: each day brings both creative and analytic challenges. And I just love this mix.
A fun fact about me: in my free time I renew furniture and my dream is to restore our family house with respect to the old traditions. I am sure that in my next life I will be a bird or a giraffe, as I am terribly afraid of heights. Sometimes even stairs make me terrified!

It is great to see that my job has a strong impact on the business. I enjoy the versatility of my tasks and possibility to professionally develop with each day.
A fun fact about me: I think that I could probably live on blue cheese and Finnish rye crackers. To a desert island I would totally take with me some sun screen and a thick pile of sudoku.
