Successful GBC family business reception
It is no secret that in order to strengthen relationships with our clients, EY takes part in different initiatives. Such was the case with an evening event dedicated to family-owned businesses from Germany and Russia (EY offers specialty services for family businesses).
This event was hosted by the EY German Business Center, with assistance from the EY Family Business Center, on 30 May in the German Embassy and included a panel discussion moderated by Anton Ionov, Russian EY Family Business Center Leader.
Ambassador Ulrich Brandenburg co-hosted the event and, after a welcome address from Tobias Luepke, Leader of the EY German Business Center in Russia, gave an introduction to the economic environment for family-owned businesses and described how the Embassy supports their activities in Russia. Also, the audience’s many questions led to a very interesting and lively discussion. The reception ended with a buffet and a chance for the participants to network.
The meeting was really successful and helped us further build client relationships and enhance our reputation in the marketplace.
