Biography

Vice president of operations, M Room Company USA; project manager, Local Greens Co. and Ilme Advertising

Some might say Joel Andersen was born to build. Whether it’s in the form of teams, companies, or outreach programs, Andersen constantly sets his sights on how to develop his community even further. Professionally, he’s helping expand the U.S. presence of three Finnish firms: M Room USA, Local Greens LLC and Ilme Advertising, in various leadership roles. And when he’s off the clock, he’s serving as a Volunteer Boy Scouts of America youth leader and Cub Scout den leader, and as Southwest Florida Enterprise Center Advisory Board member, to help entrepreneurs reach their full potential. He’s also had a hand in developing Naples Accelerator and been recognized by the likes of Naples SCORE, David Lawrence Center, and Greater Naples YMCA.
