Jarmo Kinnunen is the Sales Director at Finn-Marin and also one of the owners and co-founder of Finn-Marin. Jarmo has been in the boat industry for over 35 years. He started as a production worker. In the evenings at home he began building rowing boats and smaller boats. Not long after he and Osmo Roukala started to work at the same factory, they decided to go ahead and started to build bigger motorboats. In year 1990 they founded the company Oy Finn-Marin Ltd and launched their first boat, Finnmaster 710.

Through all these years there have been many good memories. For Jarmo the most unforgettable moment was in 2003 when Finn-Marin signed a distribution contract with Yamaha Motor Scandinavia. This network was also the beginning for Grandezza.

Jarmo describes that the best thing about his job is that the export market is very rewarding. You meet a lot of new people and get introduced to different cultures. He also points out that the boat industry develops fast and you always need to follow the newest trends in the industry and that keeps his job interesting.

Not many people know that Jarmo’s hobby is skeet shooting. He also owns trot horses and actively follows their performance.
