Tommi Ylinen

Chief Product Officer

Tommi Ylinen, MSc. (Tech), joined RELEX from Helsinki University of Technology and has since launched RELEX’s operations in the UK and is now Chief Product Officer. Tommi is originally from Espoo just west across the bay from Helsinki.

Tommi joined RELEX from Helsinki University of Technology where he took a Master’s degree from its Department of Industrial Engineering and Management, where he specialised in production and logistics with a minor in software, earning a distinction in the process.

It was a natural step for Tommi to join us when he completed his studies and during the next two years he was a Project Manager working closely with many of our customers to look after installation projects, to customise RELEX’s products to meet their needs, and to run simulations using our software and their data.

Tommi spent most of 2011 as a Development Manager with Kesko Food where he played a key role in developing and implementing processes for forecasting and automatic replenishment. A fluent English speaker, he rejoined RELEX late in 2011 with a brief to take our software to the UK and win over one of Europe’s most competitive markets to ground-breaking Finnish technology. Now Tommi has moved back to Finland to oversee product development and make sure it keeps getting even better.

When he’s not working hard Tommi is relaxing with equal enthusiasm. He keeps fit and enjoys floorball (a form of indoor hockey popular in Scandinavia and central Europe) and golf. He plays the piano, saxophone and even does an occasional spot of conducting.
