   I am a one-man enterprise. My strength derives from decades of
   experience in CEE markets, which gives me a deep understanding
   of the particularities and mentalities of the region, of the difficult
   administrative conditions, and of the particular wishes of the
   region’s markets. Since 2000, I have prepared the way for two
   international concerns (one Austrian and one German) to enter
   the Russian market and I have successfully accompanied them
   to this day! Starting with the search for a suitable site for a Rep.
   Office through to the selection of the ideal location for production,
   including the search for staff and recruitment. Answers for all
   your questions!
