I entered the sign business in 1981 and founded Imagon OY seven years later as Arto Okkonen T:mi. Over the years, I have seen Imagon grow from a one-man-business with my garage as the office to an international sign business. I believe that the key to success has been the excellent team that we have had at Imagon.
Today, I share my knowledge and extensive experience in the boards of different companies. I am the main owner of Imagon and a member of the board. I am also a member of the board of two companies, the Chairman of the Board of two and the Vice Chairman of one. I have also been active in the city of Kajaani as a member of the city government since 2009 of which the Chairman of the Board for four years.
I am born and raised in Kajaani where I still live with my wife, our Finnish Lapphund dog Peski and our cat Roope. My wife and I have always been very enthusiastic builders and dancers – we love to attend traditional Finnish summer dances. During the summers, I ride my motorbike, and during one season I can drive up to 30 000 km! When I feel the need to relax, I heat up our sauna on the lakeside and enjoy the picturesque lake view.
