Margus Nõlvak

Chairman of the Board, Mainor Ülemiste AS
Margus Nõlvak has been with the Mainor Group since 2010, managing the environmental company Doranova Baltic. Since 2014 Margus is the Chairman of the Board of Mainor Ülemiste, the developer of Ülemiste City, the largest business city in the Baltic States. Margus is also a member of the Supervisory Board of Technopolis Ülemiste AS, a co-developer of Ülemiste City.

Ülemiste City is a region with great potential - the campus has been developed for 14 years and is about 18 percent complete. The 36 hectares have 700,000 square meters of building rights, which is the same as the total office space in the whole city of Tallinn. But already today Ülemiste City has taken the size of a separate city with its 10,000 people, which is equal to the population of Haapsalu.

Under the leadership of Margus Nõlvak, Mainor Ülemiste has made a big leap in development and has ensured stable growth of the company - companies that show more than 50% growth in three years are below 1% in Estonia. This is also evidenced by company titles in various competitions and leaderboards such as Gasell's TOP or Future Maker. Margus has been able to build a strong team around her and has been recognized with the Young Manager of the Year award.
