Recruiting executives in Russia & CIS

Regions CT Executive Russia CIS

Russia, as well as the other successor states of the Soviet Union, are of great interest to international companies in search of long-term business opportunities.

The continuing need for modernization of the industry ensures a constant demand for investment goods. Due to the increased purchasing power in recent decades, Russia and Kazakhstan are important consumer goods markets. Russia has also established itself as a production location in some industries, e.g. in the fields of automotive, food, and healthcare.

CT Executive Search supports international companies by recruiting top talent into senior positions in Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Central Asia, and the Transcaucasian Republics. Typical roles in this region are those of Managing Director, Representative, Chief Operations Officer, Sales Director, Plant Manager, Human Resources Director, and Finance Director.

We work closely with companies from Russia and other CIS countries interested in recruiting expatriates. These are usually senior professionals who are recruited to various top management positions within the companies.
