Kangas’ road to becoming the export manager of V.A.V. Group has been long and diverse. After 13 years of working in various positions in the travel industry, from operations to sales to management, Kangas decided to get a Bachelor’s degree in business administration (BBA). He graduated in 2003 and began work in Tapiola, a Finnish insurance business and bank, where he worked for 14 years in many positions, including service manager, sales manager, sales coach, and development manager. His career at Tapiola was followed by what he considers one of the most important career choices: being a stay-at-home dad. – That year spent at home with my daughter was some of the hardest and most rewarding work I’ve done, and the bond we made then is still strong today.
