MTS EXECUTIVES RECOGNIZED FOR LEADERSHIP
Tuesday, September 28, 2010
The Russian business daily Kommersant has recently published its 11th Annual Ranking of Russia’s Best Managers. We are happy to announce that three of MTS’ top executives were selected as leaders in their respective categories. Mikhail Gerchuk, Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, was chosen as the Best Marketing Director for the year 2010. Sergey Nikonov, Vice President for Human Resources and Administration, was recognized in the Best Human Resources Director category, and Ruslan Ibragimov, Vice President for Corporate and Legal Matters, was selected as the Best Corporate Governance Director.
The ranking is Kommersant’s joint project with the Russian Managers Association, a nation-wide independent non-governmental organization, which identifies the best professionals in Russia among managers across different industries based on the evaluation of their professional reputation during the year. The rating also takes into consideration the weight of each candidate’s industry in the country’s gross domestic product and his/her citation index in Russian mass media. The initial number of candidates in the running for this rating at times exceeds 5,000 people. This number is then reduced to 2,000 and then to 1,000 for final consideration. The principle of the rating is simple – "The Best choose the best" – with the jury made up of industry experts.
