Introduction

Allan Kool

Management board

Allan is enterprising, innovative and tactful and maintains strong links to his social environment and other people. His colleagues describe him as loyal to his partners and with a great deal of respect for those who are loyal to him in return. A sense of authority is very important to him, albeit over situations rather than people. He is very skilled at recognising opportunities and displays great initiative in launching new projects with the energy and enthusiasm needed to make them a success.

Allan knows how to navigate his way through the minefield of conflict, dealing with others in a way that alleviates tension and steers them towards conciliation. In complex situations he always remains cool, calm and collected and he enjoys debating issues, winning people round to his way of thinking and motivating others. He does not hesitate to make proposals, lead meetings and discussions or get the team moving in the desired direction. He feels that behaviour should always be logically justified and is guided by this principle in his own work: he sets great store by facts but takes a respectful stance in regard to other people’s opinions. He always keeps his word and takes the responsibilities he has assumed very seriously, and expects others to do the same.

Anton Kruglov

Introduction

Anton Kruglov

Management board

Anton is described by his colleagues as calm, analytical and both economically and conceptually minded, as well as being someone who copes well under pressure, even in the most difficult situations. He is skilled at guiding and advising others and putting them on the right track whenever needed. In his everyday work he is a thoughtful, rational and impartial decision-maker who sees past the superficial to the full range of options on the table – with all of their attendant advantages and disadvantages – and always chooses the best possible solution among them.

Anton has great faith in his projects and indeed all of the work he does. In his mind he is always two steps ahead and truly believes in what he does. He boasts significant experience in the world of finance from earlier in his career, which contributes to the success of the company and which he is happy to share with his colleagues.

Risto Abel

Commercial property development manager

(+372) 551 4990 risto@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Risto Abel

Commercial property development manager

Risto has been described by his colleagues as an unwavering, determined, provocative (in the best sense), dutiful and result-oriented man who values trust, accuracy and the responsibility that comes with partnerships. He spends most of his time focussed on his job, believing that success comes from a lot of work and a little bit of luck, and that once you have achieved success the hardest thing is to maintain it. He places a great deal of value on the friends and partners around him and considers it important to stick to gentlemen’s agreements – which is to say agreements that may not have been put in writing but which stem naturally from an unspoken understanding between parties. He loathes about-faces and uncertainty, whether in people or situations.

Risto can be amenable at times, but driven by his convictions can also be unyielding if required, ensuring the pace and pressure of work needed to achieve results and keeping the whole team focussed on the desired outcomes. He favours a simple, sensible world view and has no time for conspiracy theories. He eschews uninformed ideas in favour of demonstrable facts and logic. He always prefers to face off against an equal or stronger opponent than someone weaker.

Rasmus Tali

Head of sales department

(+372) 5344 7685 rasmus@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Rasmus Tali

Head of sales department

According to his colleagues, Rasmus loves a challenge, or indeed anything that contributes to his development, and is always eyeing the next orchard rather than savouring the fruits of his own labour. By nature he is talented, creative and ambitious, and it is thanks to his inherent sense of artistry and good taste that he finds it easy to make decisions that are not only good, but more importantly right. He is a man with classic tastes, which appeal to just about everyone who values balance and harmony (or simply matching details) in the objects, events and emotions that life brings our way. He knows what needs to be done in order to achieve a desired outcome and does not take his eye off the target.

In himself, Rasmus is a person who always thinks somewhat outside the box whilst being characterised by his equanimity and diplomacy. As a manager he can be demanding and controlling, but at the same time always supportive and helpful. His colleagues say he is marked out by his honesty, always making good on his promises, maintaining good relations with others, his effective teamwork and his friendship, including his great sense of humour.

Oksana Ganža

Administration and finance manager

(+372) 5622 0348 oksana@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Oksana Ganža

Administration and finance manager

In the view of her colleagues, Oksana is a dutiful, reliable and hard-working young woman who values stability and good relations with her co-workers. For her, workplace and colleagues mean much more than simply fulfilling duties and counting down the hours from nine to five.

Oksana’s job is hard to quantify and difficult to measure, but the functioning of the entire company depends on it. She is something of a jack-of-all-trades: a reliable assistant to Hammerhead’s management who contributes to the development of the local property market; an outstanding administrative manager who works to resolve issues related to the company’s development on a daily basis; a competent financial adviser who helps her colleagues on a range of finance- and accounting-related matters; and the industrious manager of the HammerHub centre who fosters the development of the co-working field. Alongside all of this she finds the time to support and encourage her colleagues and is happy to share her ideas and proposals to resolve situations in the best way possible. She takes all of her roles and tasks seriously and always finishes what she starts.

Katre Tamp

Marketing and sales manager

(+372) 5383 8108 katre@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Katre Tamp

Marketing and sales manager

Although to those who don’t know her Katre might come across as a typical blonde, her colleagues say that beneath that exterior lies a strong, ambitious woman with clear goals and a broad range of interests. In her everyday work, and for that matter in her everyday life, she is bold and determined, focussing on achieving the goals she has set herself and taking it as motivation to prove herself if someone doubts in her abilities. In addition to her excellent management and organisational skills she is a creative and imaginative free-thinker who comes up with unique ideas and who is unafraid to think outside the box.

Katre is loyal, happy to work with others and always willing to help. She is a good listener and creates a positive atmosphere wherever she goes. She places a lot of value on the relationships she shares with her colleagues and fully dedicates herself to her work. Even when she goes on holiday she never forgets to remind people that they can call or e-mail her at any time, whatever the question or problem.

Oscar Leemets

Sales consultant

(+372) 5686 0558 oscar@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Oscar Leemets

Sales consultant

Oscar is every inch the embodiment of the proverb ‘fortune favours the brave’: he is brimming with youthful get-up-and-go and never allows himself to be knocked down if something fails to work out as expected. According to his colleagues he is always looking for innovative solutions and approaches and is a quick learner who is happy to share his ideas and willing to put untested sales and marketing tricks to the test.

To Oscar it is important to believe in what you sell – he can’t look a client in the eye and praise something to the skies of whose value or usefulness he himself remains unconvinced. He is quick to form personal connections with clients, to whom he has the ability to talk freely on just about any subject, from sport to art. Beneath his smiling, friendly exterior lies an ambitious young man who knows that objectives are there to be achieved and who works every day to meet the goals he has set himself.

Introduction

Dmitry Gubin

Sales consultant

Dmitry’s colleagues are said to describe him as a great guy who is easy to talk to on a wide range of topics. His desire to learn and his willingness to help mean that he contributes a great deal to the work of Hammerhead every day, being both thorough and precise in completing his tasks and never leaving anything to chance. Called Dima by his co-workers, he avoids talking for the sake of it and is instead very specific in what he says. Equally, in what he does he is very focussed on the result. Everyone appreciates his ironic, modest sense of humour, which always gets a laugh at just the right moment.

Dmitry is a creative person with outstanding image- and video-processing skills, which is why his visuals so often adorn Hammerhead’s projects.

Ahti Silk

Sales consultant

(+372) 5561 6332 ahti@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Ahti Silk

Sales consultant

Ahti’s colleagues appreciate the very conscious way he has of going about things, as well as his focus and ease of communication in conducting property transactions. He has been involved in the fields of real estate marketing and advisory services for almost 20 years and has been behind hundreds of successful transactions. He makes skilful use of the experience he has gained in that time when he takes on new property-related challenges, approaching things just as required, with a clear vision  and focussed on the end result.

Ahti’s first encounter with property transactions came during the many years he spent as a consultant in notary’s offices. He then spent 10 years working in a well-known real estate company selling residential and commercial premises, during which he earned the recognition of both his colleagues and clients and often provided advice that helped to overcome obstacles. He always sets high expectations for himself, but considers the journey towards reaching them more important than the destination itself.

Marco Pärtel

Project manager

Characterised by his colleagues as a smart, self-assured and fair-minded man who takes things as he finds them, Marco never feels comfortable in moments of tension or conflict and does everything he can to avoid such situations or nip them in the bud. Thanks to these qualities and his calm nature, he is able to establish an atmosphere of trust as soon as he meets people by working with everyone as a team player.

Marco’s sense of duty and discipline allow him to take an interest in a broad range of things. His colleagues praise him for the fact that he is always clear and precise in what he says and governs his thoughts. He enjoys discussing issues that give people food for thought, and thinking is without doubt one of his strongest suits. As such, he is logical, analytical and objectively critical.

Toomas is a methodical, objective and independent man with broad-ranging knowledge and interests. He is dedicated to his own development and that of the team and he is never satisfied with easy answers – it is important to him to understand processes and how they can be streamlined. He always approaches decisions from a logical, reasoned position. He is a self-aware and intellectual man who may at first seem a little closed off to onlookers, but who in fact is always ready to help and support his colleagues, who in turn know they can rely on him.

Ade-Birgit Lepik

(+372) 5624 3813 birgit@hammerhead.ee
Introduction

Ade-Birgit Lepik

Office manager

Ade-Birgit, or simply Ade to her colleagues, is cheerful, easy to talk to and always open to meeting new people. This makes her ideally suited to her position as manager of the HammerHub office hotel, an offshoot of Hammerhead, where she is tasked with giving her co-workers all the support they need, thereby contributing to the sustainable development of local companies. She is a very focussed young woman who resolves any problems she encounters with disarming ease. She also notices every detail, however small, that could become a stumbling block to achieving shared goals.

Ade-Birgit is quick on the uptake, thinks very logically and is always willing to take action, all of which makes her a trusted and hard-working colleague – one whose sense of humour can get people to see the funny side of even the most serious situations. In her day-to-day work she strives to avoid getting trapped in routine and makes every day as exciting and memorable for herself as she can.
