Arto is the captain of the mothership at Basemark. He’s one of those rare techies who has risen through the ranks to become CEO.
Arto started programming when he was 9 years old, studied Computer Science and Project Management at Tieturi, then finally started getting paid as a programmer in 2005 for Indiepath. He then made a name for himself at Hybrid Graphics and NVIDIA taking graphics driver development to new heights. After multiple hands-on and management roles at Futuremark, he moved naturally into the position of running and building Rightware’s global team and product, the Kanzi UI Solution.
In 2015, Arto and Tero founded Basemark together and acquired the graphics technology team from Rightware that they had been managing. Thus the core of Basemark’s expertise was born. Besides living on an airplane, Arto has lived in California, built teams and worked with customers in Asia, EU, and the USA.
Arto has an incredible network worldwide, and if you don’t know him, he probably knows you! His passion for technology is incendiary, helping propel Basemark’s place in today’s growing graphics and compute world.
