Fifteen years of Mr. Demchenkov's business experience saw a career progress from a sales representative to the director of a major distribution and logistics company of a federal scale.

Having gained successful experience in distribution, the company proceeded to investigate a new business area – contract logistics. Having taken the lead over the company in 2006, Mr. Demchenkov succeeded to win new geographical markets, thus, multiplying the company's profits.
Today, the main focus of Petr Demchenkov's attention is drawn to the organizational development of the company and creating a pool of prospective contracts with leading Russian and European producers of food and nonfood goods.
