of the family's companies and graduated with a master's degree in economics
from Hanken School of Economics in 1992. He started his career in the
same year by founding a store called Beer Company in the centre of Helsinki.
Over the years he took up several positions within the family businesses
working as a financial manager in K. Hartwall Ltd and later expanding the
company by co-operating with Lankapaja. Soon after Victor's involvement
in this modern Finnish metal manufacturer Lankapaja came under part ownership
of the Hartwall family.
As the family office K. Hartwall Invest was founded in 2000, Victor took
over as managing director. New challenges awaited Victor when the family
founded a Ukraine based real estate company HT Property Development.
