Marat Terterov: Armenia’s long term security will be better served by strengthening economic security, rather than defining national security on the basis of the Tsarist Russian catch-cry “armiya i flot”
The CIS Business Unit of Vimpelcom Ltd has announced the appointment of Sergey Zakurayev as Head of ArmenTel's Mobile Communication Unit.
Vimpelcom's Vice President for CIS Dmitry Kromsky says that Zakurayev as quite successful when representing Beeline in Georgia. "In Armenia we have even wider growth opportunities and I am sure that Zakurayev's working experience will foster the development of our mobile services in the country," says Kromsky.
Zakurayev believes that despite its colossal efforts to improve its quality and accessibility, ArmenTel has much to do yet to gain the trust of its customers. "I am sure that specific strategies and fresh ideas will help us to bring our services in Armenia up to the highest international level," says Zakurayev.
Sergey Zakurayev was born in Stavropol, Russia, in 1974. In 2003 he graduated from the Russian Government's Academy of National Economy. He started his career at VimpelCom in 2003 as Commercial Director of Beeline Southern Region in Russia. He has represented Vimpelcom in Vietnam, Uzbekistan and Georgia.
