Moscow, June 8th 2017 - Dmitry Korobkov, Chairman of the Board of ADV (Russia’s biggest communications group) becomes its CEO once again.
Previously Dmitry had left operational management to study digital markets and innovative approaches in communications. For the recent couple of years he has been active as a venture investor and mad tech entrepreneur in various startups, including London-based CognitionX, Attest, Action.AI as well as others. He also holds advisory positions in several international business accelerators such as Seedcamp or Collider.io.
‘New technologies are reshaping all the markets. The ways of reaching the audience and interacting with it, delivering content and analytics are changing dramatically. Being one of the most ‘innovation-sensitive’ fields, advertising should adapt to these changes as fast as it can’, says Dmitry. He stated his return to operational management was inevitable because not only business processes should be revised but the overall understanding of the advertising industry.
Kirill Korobeynikov, the former CEO and Member of Advisory Board, will keep working as a business development and key account executive.
