Journal Entry 1 by wingPeoniowing from Porvoo, Uusimaa / Nyland Finland on Friday, April 12, 2024
"Pekka Herlin led KONE Corporation to unprecedented international success, making it a role model for other Finnish expansionist companies. In the process, he became a legend in his own time, but the brighter the light cast on any legend, the longer and more disturbing its shadow is likely to be.

KONE's long-time CEO Pekka Herlin was a businessman, farmer and sailor, a complex individual who was both feared and adored.
KONE's Prince addresses openly for the first time this very complicated pioneer's life and personality. He was a contradictory soul, who left behind both great personal wealth and his children's relationship with each other in tatters."

Detail for booklovers:
Pekka Herlin's youngest son Niklas Herlin was principal owner and one of the founders of Finnish book publishing house "Teos".

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

The courier wants to know who leaves the convention with Pekka Herlin.
I've read the book in Finnish many years ago. I've been travelling with Kone lifts nearly all my life and currently I live opposite to their headcourters. Success comes with a price.
