CEO, Sakara Records
Tuomo Saikkonen is soon starting his 20th year as the managing director of a well-established Finnish record label Sakara Records. The members of now legendary metal band Mokoma started the label in 2003 to release their own music but very soon after the first Mokoma release Sakara’s roster started to expand – now including artists such as Stam1na, Rytmihäiriö, Diablo, Jarkko Martikainen and Stoned Statues. In addition to his work as the CEO and A&R at Sakara, Saikkonen still plays the guitar and writes music for Mokoma who remain one of the top names in the Finnish metal scene.
