At that time Nokia was quite different compared to the Nokia we know today. There was Telenokia, NokiaData and so on. To my knowledge Nokia had several offices all around the country.

OK, so it was already spread all over the country. Even though mobile business was still in it's early years...

John, do you have any idea in which Nokia business area Pekka was working? In case he is still working for the same (or what it has become) business area. Might be easier to find him if our people at Nokia would know his business area. Nokia is such a huge company nowadays that it might be difficult to find one person from there...

Wow!

Thanks for the big response!!

Finshark, Pappatunturi, corvette63 & Peku22:

I think he worked for Nokia Mobira in the 85' to 87' in Bernardsville, NJ USA office.

I believe he was a firearms enthusiast and may have had some connection with Sako early in his career when it was owned by or part of Nokia Mobira.

I'm not sure about that last name, I want to say Kontrantada but that is just how I remember it(I hope I'm not butchering his name or Finnish honor).He may have gone back between 86' and 89'

Sorry about misspelling Findland in last post. I'm starting to feel like comming to Findland!

Thanks to all!

John

Hopefully you will get contact to your old friend John. Maybe the Kontrantada might be Kotiranta or something like that. Good luck for your search John

Macho tulee olemaan kuuluisa ennen pitkää
Entinen nokialainen Pekka Kotiranta eteni Ericssonilla Euroopan, Lähi-idän ja Afrikan matkapuhelinmyynnistä vastaavaksi johtajaksi, mutta kuluttajat naureskelivat kolhoille kännyköille vaikka Kotiranta myi, myi ja myi. Lupaava ura lässähti potkuihin viime syksynä (2001). Kotiranta asuu tätä nykyä Tanskassa, vaimonsa kotimaassa.

Maybe it's this guy, at least nobody with this name works for nokia anymore. my free translation from the old news I found:

A former nokia emplyee Pekka Kotiranta made progress as he worked for Ericsson as a Europe, Middle East and Africa mobilephone sales executive person. The consumers laughed at the bulky phones, even though Kotiranta sold, sold and sold. Promising career ended last fall (2001). Nowdays Kotiranta lives in Danmark, which is his wife's homeland.

There's no Pekka Kortelainen working for Nokia today.

By the way, I checked how many "Pekka Kortelainen" you can find from Finnish telephone catalog "Fonecta". There was 39 hits...

Pappatunturi: I agree with you, this mystery needs to be solved!

By the way, where Nokia had offices at that time? At least in Tampere and Otaniemi(?), anywhere else?

Salo.....
