Chief Operating Officer
My early interest in learning foreign languages led me to study in US for a school year. When I came back to Russia I entered 2 universities at the same time, so studying in parallel I acquired 2 Bachelor level degrees simultaneously, a BA in English language teaching and translation and a BA in Business Management. More than 20 years I am working in business development in different international corporations acting in industries like logistics, manufacturing, wholesale and retail, health and safety of employees. I always had entrepreneur spirit which helped me to reach job targets whether by using different approach in sales or creating new products for the local market. Biggest achievement is $1 million USD in sales.
My passion is to develop innovative social projects which can make life of people easier and more happy.

I am a professionally qualified Financial Consultant. Born in London. I have 40 years experience in financial services. I learnt my trade with Insurance companies rising to senior management level and latterly with financial advice firms.

I have spent the last 7 years in Russia where I set up a financial advice business but now I am back in the UK overseeing Vintage Entrepreneur Ltd & The O45E Club.

I believe passionately in what VE Ltd & The O45E Club is all about.
