Editor-in-Chief of Za Rulem magazine, the biggest motoring magazine in Russia with circulation around 300’000 copies a month, with powerful web-site and digital applications (iOS, Android, Windows). Za Rulem magazine was established in 1928.
Motoring Media Career:
- I began the career of a journalist in 1993 after graduating from Moscow State Technical University. I specialize in writing single and comparison car tests, reviews of new cars, automotive exhibitions, car factories, etc.
- From 1993 to 2014 I worked like a staff writer in Autoreview magazine (second biggest in Russia) and was responsible also for Ukrainian market from 2006 till 2014. After 21 years in Autoreview I was invited to Za Rulem magazine like Deputy Editor, and from October, 1, 2014 I hold the position of Editor-in-Chief and steer all our activities on all platforms (print magazine, web, social networks, digital apps).
Awards and Nominations / Professional Performances:
I was twice named like the best motoring journalist in Russia. I represented Russia at the famous world contest “The Car of the Century” (1998—2000). I was also a member of the World Car of the Year jury, but a few years ago I decided to give preferences to the AutoBest contest, which is considered to be very important for Russian market.
AUTOBEST is the only competition in which selected not supercars or super achievement, but the real cars for real life. That's why AUTOBEST has a great future, especially in Eastern Europe.
