Interdean's staff changes in Paris, Russia and Ukraine.
Interdean has added two new members to its team: Alexandra Demeure has become a Global Relocation Assistant, based in the Paris office; Alexander Sikorsky, has become the Regional Sales Director in Russia.
Alexandra is a graduate of law and has specialised in immigration. Her work involved organising long & short-stay visas and work permits, initiating claims for asylum and refugee status and arranging rights of residence for UE/EEA citizens and their accompanying families. She is fluent in French, English and Spanish, and knows some Danish too.
Alexander Sikorsky has over ten years’ experience in the relocation and moving industry. Alex began his career in London in 2000 as operations manager for a relocation company then joined Interdean in 2002. In 2005 and 2006 he worked as general manager of a removal company in Cambridgeshire, then relocated with his wife Kate, to Kiev, Ukraine, to take on a new role as Branch Manager of Interdean Ukraine. The couple now have two children and are relocating again to Moscow to take up the new position.
“I see my new role as regional sales director for this region, that I have cultural ties with, as an amazing opportunity in my life. I am excited about this new challenge and the opportunity to help increase Interdean’s market share in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. My goal is to develop business, grow sales and build up a strong sales team. My experience as an expat who relocated his family already twice will serve me well in understanding our clients’ needs and build and maintain strong relationships."
Meanwhile, Marina Chornokozha has taken over from Alexander as the new branch manager in Kiev. Marina’s background is in logistics; having worked in the industry for eleven years. In 2006, Marina joined Interdean where she has spent three years as operations manager and a further three years as sales manager.
Marina is looking forward to her new role: “I consider my new position an exciting challenge and I look forward to using all my experience gained during working in operations and sales. I believe that this will help me to maintain the current strong and stable position of Interdean in the Ukrainian market and to ensure our further growth.”
Marina takes on the management of the Kiev office at an exciting time for Interdean Ukraine. It was revealed recently that Interdean is now the only FIDI accredited international relocation moving company in the Ukraine.
