We Behind Åland Online

Björn Pettersson

Björn Pettersson

Founder and owner

On a daily basis, I work as an IT & Service manager, but my heart has always had a special place for Åland. Since I was a child, I have had a strong connection to the island through my family, and every holiday and vacation during my upbringing was spent there. These memories and experiences from Åland led me to found Åland Online.

What started as a hobby project has grown over the years, but I still consider Åland Online my personal leisure project. Through this web portal, I have been given the opportunity to share my love for Åland and contribute to the community. My technical skill combined with my passion for the island has made Åland Online an important resource for many.

Our Shared History

Over 20 years ago, our paths crossed at work, where we quickly discovered a shared passion and outlook on working life. Over time, not only did our relationship grow on a personal level, but also professionally.

When I first started the company, the vision was clear, but as with all visions, it takes the right people to make them come true. This is where my wife Nina, with her skill and intuition, naturally became part of the company’s journey. She completed the areas I lacked and together we created a strong foundation for our business.

Interweaving our professional roles with our personal lives has taught us a lot about collaboration, understanding and patience. What started as two colleagues at a workplace has blossomed into a partnership where together we run a successful company, built on common values, commitment and a deep belief that together we are stronger.

Over the years, our shared history has become the core of the company’s culture, and we look forward to continuing our journey together with all of you who will be part of our future.
