Peetu Öunap has been appointed as the product development director of Alma Media’s Alma Media Solutions unit starting May 30 2016. In Alma Media Solutions, Öunap is responsible for developing national and especially network and mobile products for Alma’s advertiser customers.
Öunap has acted as Finland’s country manager in Gravity4, which focuses on marketing automation and online advertising.

- I have been engaged in media throughout my career and I am now “returning home” to Alma. Alma Media is a media company that is now in an interesting phase. I believe that the company has fine opportunities ahead because digitalisation has been seriously taken into consideration in all of Alma’s operations and business development. My aim is to find good ways of producing better targeted advertising to consumers and thereby provide customers with a better return on advertisement investments, says Peetu Öunap.
- We are strengthening our product portfolio and existing products and investing strongly in developing solutions for programmatic buying and data utilisation solutions. Peetu also brings valuable expertise to Alma in international marketing, says Tiina Järvilehto, head of the Alma Media Solutions unit.

Its task is to apply itself to customers’ marketing communications challenges and also offer comprehensive solutions outside the boundaries of traditional media advertising.
