Bukowskis strengthens its leading position in Finland with top recruitments

Bukowskis is the leading auction house for fine art and design on the Nordic market. Now Bukowskis is strengthening its leading position in the Finnish market by welcoming Saara Wörlund as the manager of the Finnish branch office and Johan Wulff as the Head Specialist, Art. These key recruitments are a part of the active transition work Bukowskis has been carrying out during the past year in order to ensure high quality.

“During the year, Bukowskis has set even higher goals for quality, and this calls for the very best employees. Saara Wörlund and Johan Wulff will, accompanied by the other specialists within fine arts, design and works of art, be able to offer our customers with extraordinary support in making successful transactions", says Louise Arén, the CEO of Bukowskis.

Saara Wörlund has been building a local and international career in various fields, such as consumer products, in several leading roles. Most recently, she worked as a channel development manager with Danone Finland Oy, with the responsibility for launching and developing new channels on a Nordic level. As the manager of Bukowskis’ Finnish unit, Saara will mainly be responsible for strengthening Bukowskis’ offerings to new and present customers. She will take over her position on 18 November 2019.

“I’m really looking forward to leading Bukowskis's operations in Finland forward together with the strong team of specialists, who now constitute a fantastic pool of expertise within high-quality arts and design”, says Saara Wörlund, the incoming manager of Bukowskis Finnish branch office.

During a more than 30-year dedicated engagement in the fine art and auction field, Johan Wulff has gathered an extensive contact network and acquired a comprehensive overview of the scene. Through his own interest in fine art and activities as a collector, Johan will in his role as the head art specialist strengthen Bukowskis’ key position in the sales of fine art. Together with other senior art specialists, such as Laura Pohjola who is responsible for contemporary and modern art, Johan and Bukowskis will be able to offer their customers with an extensive customer contact network and a market leading expertise in high-quality art. Johan Wulff took over his position on 23 September 2019.

“It feels wonderful to join the leading actor in the field and to experience the unanimously serious and careful approach towards high-quality art, which, to a large extent, constitutes the Bukowskis brand”, says Johan Wulff, Head Specialist, Art.
