Mikael Kulikoff

Manager, Development


I have worked as Manager, Development, at TELA since 2009. I came to TELA from an IT service company, where I got to know the earnings-related pension sector first as a coder and then as a project manager and customer service manager. I have a Master of Arts Degree.

The pension system is like a river, seemingly stationary but always in a state of flux.

In my spare time:

I do fitness sports, taking the weather and seasonal variations into account in the choice of sports. In summer, I like spending time at the cottage. In winter, I often go to the theatre. I always watch for birds wherever I happen to walk.

Comments by workmates:

“As regards wider pictures, Mikael — more familiarly, Mishka — is a sharp and reflective thinker. He does nothing halfway, but always proceeds with care. Mishka is solution-oriented, friendly and has a good sense of humour. He can be laid back, unless there is a competition. Mishka is a stranger to playful competitions! He gets annoyingly high readings in TELA’s kilometre race.”
