MOSCOW, October 26. /TASS/. Managing Partner of Russia of the world’s largest international auditor Ernst & Young (EY) Alexander Ivlev won the 2016 Top 1,000 Russian Managers Awards in the Best Top Executive (CEO) category, TASS reports on Wednesday.
The official award ceremony took place in Moscow Tuesday night. The award is granted for the best management track record in Russia, the ability to establish the dialogue between the business and the government, and for building up a positive image of Russian business overseas.
MTS CEO Andrey Dubovskov, Sheremetyevo International Airport CEO Mikhail Vasilenko, EY Managing Partner for Russia Alexander Ivlev, Moscow Exchange CEO Alexander Afanasiev and Sistema CEO Mikhail Shamolin were also recognized as Russia’s Best CEOs.
Ivlev leads the Russian division of EY since 2010. He is also the coordinator of foreign members of the Foreign Investment Advisory Council in Russia. This is the first time when an audit firm executive won in the Best Top Executive (CEO) category.
“Our sector – audit and consulting services – is less in the public eye than banking, telecoms or manufacturing. Our successful performance at the awards is a sign that audit and consulting services are recognized as a sector that plays an important role in Russia’s economy,” Ivlev said.
The winners of the Top 1,000 Russian Managers Awards category can be seen as Russia’s talent pool of future public sector leaders, Ivlev added.
Ivlev joined the “top 100” of Russian President’s executives’ succession pool in 2009. Chief Executive of SUEK coal miner Vladimir Rashevsky won the contest last year.
