Although Olavi spends much of his time abroad, he and his family have lived in Kuopio, Finland for over 40 years, where he is a well loved member of the community and supporter of local industries. He is married, with three beautiful daughters who have their own families.

In the winter, Olavi jump-starts each day with an ice-cold swim in the nearby frozen lake and spends much time cross-country skiing with his wife across the enamoring Finnish winter landscape. During the summer, he can be found tending to his ship, or in the forest, cutting wood for his several saunas. He also plays a mean round of golf and loves to prepare his signature birch-smoked salmon roast for his family and international guests.
