From a little boy’s dream to an interesting career

Frans Junno, the product manager of fully electric EQ passenger cars and eVans vans, is living his dream. He moved to Veho in the summer of 2021, after working in the automotive sector for five years and studying business. Frans has been interested in cars, new innovations and electronics ever since he was a little boy, and he is a keen follower of the automotive sector, even outside work.


“At the 2018 Paris Motor Show, I got to know about concept cars and the upcoming Mercedes-EQ range of fully electric cars. I knew I wanted to be a part of that development. Veho has a very impressive position in the automotive sector in Finland. When there was a job opening, I applied for it and was chosen,” says Frans, recounting how he ended up becoming the product manager of the fully electric Mercedes range.

As product manager, Frans keeps different interest groups aware of the EQ and eVans products, supports sales, trains staff and sees that the strategy for the range is working.

“We have been launching products every couple of months, so I feel like I am at the heart of driving electric. I also participate in planning the strategy for the range,” Frans says without hiding his excitement.

Interaction boosts the technological edge

Even though Frans’s heart beats for electric car technology, people are also very important. In large part, his work involves different kinds of communication with the Mercedes-Benz Group AG, dealers and other stakeholders. “The warm welcome from an amazing group” has felt good.

From this and some exceptionally long careers, Frans has concluded that he isn’t the only one who enjoys working at Veho. Veho’s customer orientation and the way it is taken into consideration in all activities has made an impression on him. According to the product manager, the electric department also comprehensively considers infrastructure and charging solutions.

“If I have a good idea, I am encouraged to put it into action. It is motivating to realise that your employer has both resources and continuity. A shared interest in cars creates an encouraging atmosphere,” Frans notes.
