About Founder

Born in May 10, 1982. Degree in Economics; Degree in Intercultural Communication. I have started my career in Germany conducting market research projects for German companies in steel and timber industries.

Six years later I moved to Russia, where I promoted through roles of increasing scope and responsibility from a Market Research Manager to the Deputy Director of Export Sales and Business Development Director, served on Atlantis-Pak’s Strategic Council. I was responsible for strategic market research and competitive analysis, global sales strategy formulation and implementation management, establishing foreign branches in Europe, America, MENA and Asia and ensuring continued revenue growth, directed global strategy implementation activities, managing workflow of +30 export managers and sales reps to drive export sales. Today Atlantis-Pak is a leading global company with headquarter in Russia and sales network worldwide, and is ranked in the top 10 companies in the flexible packaging industry with sales to 85 countries. I am proud to be a part of this fascinating success story.

After 10 years with Atlantis-Pak brand I moved to the USA, where I drive business expansion into the US and South America as a Director of Sales and Strategic Marketing of DIMET GmbH, the manufacturer of electromagnets and heavy lifting equipment for the steel industry. It was success, and in 2022 I decided to focus on my own projects.

Being passionate about sales and a cosmopolitan, I was always surrounded by skilled professionals from different industries, and these good connections gave me the ability to build a strong and persistent team of business developers and marketers to assist you in your international projects.

If you are interested in global expansion or want to solve a specific task in area of our expertise, feel free to contact us:
