We create communications that supports leadership and builds value.

We are Mailand

About us:
Work with us?

The idea of Mailand saw daylight on May 11, 2006, at an Aalto Executive Education EMBA lecture: “Strategic communications for B2B companies and specialist organisations”. The consultancy was opened in February 2008. Since then we have served businesses and organisations who aim high and recognize the value of PR for their growth.

Mailand is a PR consultancy that supports leadership and builds value. Our clients are companies and organisations that thrive, rethink their industries and renew the society.

Communication connects the agencies, clients, the media, politician and authorities – and this co-operation requires sharing the same moral, legal and social values. This is the foundation of how Mailand works.

We are not afraid of throwing ourselves into even the most difficult tasks if there is a good cause. We will give our full support to companies and leaders who want to create a better society with their capabilities, build wealth, develop innovations, and improve our well-being and sustainability. It is easy to commit to such corporate cultures and people, and it also makes our work meaningful.

(Also, we can cite the Finnish rocker Mato Valtonen’s words that we don’t work for assholes.)
