Will Mika Salmi Rescue Sulake?


As the new Chairman HABBO, will Mika Salmi rescue Sulake? Did he rescue MTV Networks? http://www.dmwmedia.com/news/2006/11/01/mika-salmi-to-the-rescue-at-mtv-as-new-president-global-digital-media According to sources a "standup guy" who is no doubt a business wizz http://newteevee.com/2009/03/05/mika-salmi-leaving-mtv-networks/, Salmi with Sulake will have his work cut out for him. But being so "anti-establishment" at heart http://www.businessweek.com/2000/00_20/b3681085.htm, he may be more BOBBA than HABBO. Is that a good thing http://paymentguy.blogspot.com/2009/10/kill-bobba-now.html?

I have known Mika professionally and personally for many years - Sulake couldn't ask for a better mix of creative and business executive, with a unique Finnish/American hybrid background. Sulake may have challenges, especially on the mobile side, but it's in good hands with Mika as Chairman

By the way, the guy sure has great experience and seems very well regarded which is truly unique - but there are 2,000,000 Americans with Finnish ancestry ;)
