13 January 2016

BDO congratulates Alisa for her obtaining a fine recognition and for a successful year.

Long-distance runner Alisa Vainio and the expert organisation BDO have a sponsorship co-operation. The co-operation with Vainio started last year, when the company, which specialises in financial and administrative expert services, sought a way to support and encourage Finnish sports. Common values shared with the talented young runner were easy to find.
 
- Alisa represents very much the same values that we too emphasise in our own activities. They include persistence, know-how, persistence and success at both domestic and international levels, explains BDO's Managing Director Hannu Riippi.
