How Alexander is building a better working world

“I see three priority areas for action. The first is to improve the business and investment climate in Russia by supporting FIAC activities. The second important area is to encourage and promote entrepreneurship through the Entrepreneur of the Year and Entrepreneurial Winning Women programs. The third area covers our corporate social responsibility programs, which engage many EY people.  The global program EY Ripples has been opened to external participants starting this year, and we hope that by doing so, our company will make a substantial contribution to the development of the volunteer movement across the world.”
