Meet The WIISE Team

Paul Fairchild, Jiuliano Prisada and Mark Wiltshear are three immigrant entrepreneurs. Together with Finn, Michael Nieminen, we have more than 50 years of experience as entrepreneurs in Etelä-Pohjanmaa.

That experience can be used to help migrating workers, and their family members, to settle into working life and integrate into everyday life in Finland. This will enable companies to retain their staff longer. At the same time, we can help international students focus on what they need to do to ensure that, after they graduate, they are prepared to apply for work. Keeping these international resources in Etelä-Pohjanmaa will enable municipalities to serve a rich, varied population that is employed, settled and happy to be living in Finland.
