Pekka-Pietari established Akela in 2008. Before that Pekka worked in Europe, Africa, Americas and Oceania, both with established fast growing companies and start-ups alike, with focus on Business to Business (B2B) and Business to Government (B2G) projects. Pekka thanks all his former employers and current partners and customers for the chances to excel, reach for challenging targets and aim to make a difference.
Today Akela continues work with innovative people and develops new concepts for training. Akela has formed several key partnerships combining international expertise with local knowledge and skills.
Akela works with Health, Safety and Environment activities; with special focus on offshore oil industry, safety and survival training and oil spill recovery. Akela is committed to help our customers to improve work place safety, work methods and skills, at the same time protecting the environment by introducing new ideas, equipment and training methods.
Akela is a family company. The founder, Pekka, is married to Kirsten, a wonderful South-African-German girl, and together with their now adult children Kai and Mia we continue to live, work and enjoy life’s adventures, so far spanning four continents and four nationalities.
