Appointment Door - Photo by Dima Pechurin on UnsplashEficode, the consultancy firm specialising in DevOps and Agile Methodologies, has appointed Hans Parvikoski as its new Chief Financial Officer. Parvikoski will also join the Group Management Team at the global consultancy firm. He assumes the role from Hannu Hänninen; it is unclear what Hänninen is doing next.

Ilari Nurmi, CEO of Eficode, commented, “Over the previous five years, Eficode has evolved from a Finnish DevOps pioneer to a leading European company in Atlassian, GitHub, and GitLab technologies and Agile, DevOps, and Cloud consulting. Our commitment to expanding our global presence, organically and inorganically, remains steadfast.

“We welcome Hans to the CFO role and to the management team. He brings a wealth of experience to our company and the management team and supports Eficode in its next wave of growth.”

Parvikoski joins Eficode from Avidly, a leading European martech service provider based in Finland. He has also held CFO roles at the Digitalist Group & Network, Idean and was head of finance at Aalto University.

Parvikoski also held finance leadership positions at Basware, Ixonos and Rauti Oyj. He began his career with Carnegie Investment Bank and also spent nearly two years at KPMG. Parvikoski has a Master of Science in Economics. He also holds a Certified European Financial Analyst (CEFA) Diploma from Aalto University Executive Education.

Parvikoski, Chief Financial Officer at Eficode, commented, “Eficode’s high growth ambitions and inspiring company culture align with my professional history. I am deeply impressed with the company’s achievements in recent years and eagerly look forward to joining the Eficode journey and participating in its continued growth. Eficode offers me new avenues for personal and professional growth.”

Enterprise Times: What does this mean

At Avidly, Parvikoski steered the company through the acquisitions of Digital 22 and Hype & Dexter. Presumably working with CapMan, the private equity firm that invested in Avidly in 2018. He will no doubt use this experience to help Eficode with further acquisitions, after the company most recently acquired Avocet in August 2023.

It will be interesting to see how he builds the relationship with Saara Kauppila. Now Head of Strategy and Corporate Development, who was CFO prior to the appointment of Hänninen. Forging strong relationships across the Management Group will hopefully see Eficode retaining his services for years.
