Executive Vice President,
Tapio Anttila is Sitra’s Executive Vice President. According to Sitra’s rules of procedure, the Executive Vice President is the deputy of the President. The Executive Vice President ensures the functionality of Sitra’s decision-making system, chairs Sitra’s management team and participates in meetings of Sitra’s Board and Supervisory Board. He is also responsible for societal training and development at Sitra.
Tapio’s background is in education business, the banking sector, universities and the Ministry of Justice. During his career, he has become acquainted with personnel development, education and facilitation from a number of different perspectives. His doctoral dissertation was in the field of risk-management regulation in banks, but jurisprudence has recently played a minor role in his work. Tapio finds cross-societal strategy processes and facilitation projects the most interesting and challenging tasks in his work.
In the evenings and at weekends, you will often find Tapio on the football field coaching the juniors of the Puotinkylän Valtti football club or cycling around Eastern Uusimaa. He spends his summers in the outer archipelago of Sipoo. In the middle of the summer, the algal blooms in the sea regrettably often prevent swimming and offer him a reminder of the state of the Baltic Sea. Tapio writes a blog called Monologia dialogista (A monologue about dialogue), in which he combines two of his passions: dialogue and football.
Tapio believes in dialogue, the future and – of course – dialogue in the future.
