For the Citizens of Ukraine

Continuent’s CEO and Founder, Eero Teerikorpi, also a former Finnish Navy officer, is stepping out of his sabbatical to share heartfelt support for the citizens of Ukraine.

This is an important subject for the Continuent team, as we have families with ties to both Ukraine and Russia, and Continuent is a global company. The rights, freedom, and independence of all people and countries no matter how small, are important to us. Music credit is "Finlandia" by Jean Sibelius.

Hello! This is Eero Teerikorpi, CEO and Founder of Continuent. Our thoughts and prayers from myself and the whole team of Continuent are today with the fellow citizens of Ukraine. As you may know, I’m originally a Finn. I moved from Finland to the US some 30 years ago, but I still share the feeling of the Finns living next to Russia with almost a 1,000-mile borderline and being attacked back in December 1936 by Russia. It requires hard fighting to maintain the independence, and we sincerely hope Ukraine will also survive this very distressing situation. Take care, my fellow Ukrainians.
