Viivi Avellán / Golf
Viivi is a mother of two, and to her, golf is a lifestyle. Viivi has been working as a journalist since 1999 – as a TV sports reporter as well as an author. It was golf, actually, that pulled her in to media, as, to her surprise, the golf TV show Draivi on channel four hired her as the person responsible for inserts. At the same time, Sanoma, owned by channel four, allowed her to get a reporter's degree.
“I can say I was living and breathing golf when I was young. I started to take it seriously when I was 9, and I was competing at Finnish championship level until the age of 16. After that, I was working as a caddiemaster and had a relationship with a professional golfer”, she admits.
In addition to Draivi, Viivi was writing for different Finnish golf magazines for ten years. She has been the editor-in-chief of Fore! since 2013 as well as the coordinator of Fore Fashion golf tour. On TV, in addition to working for channel four sports news, she has worked at MTV3 news alongside hosting several TV shows and being the producer of Elixir sports show.
Viivi's knowledge of golf is extensive, and she knows its prominent figures. That coupled with her contacts with Finnish media representatives and social media skills provides excellent tools for sharing a client's message.
Pauliina, 31, has been a show jumping professional for 15 years. It has been her passion since she straddled a pony for the first time when she was five years old. She worked as a caddiemaster for one season at a golf club when she was younger. After that, she has been working as an entrepreneur in different positions in service industry.
In 2012, Pauliina took up golf seriously. “I didn't think I could find another sport that would get me hooked as strong as show jumping did, but it happened after all. Golf is immensely addictive”, she says.
She started at Fore! in 2013. She has been working as a producer on Fore Fashion Tour since the beginning. Pauliina works at Krook Media as a producer, managing client relationships with EDGE and Fore! magazines, events, and their digital channels. In wintertime, she enjoys skiing.
