UniCredit is pleased to announce that PRO Eurasia is among 4 newly selected companies for UniCredit CEE Lounge, an innovative initiative that enables ambitious private companies to accelerate their growth.
The CEE Lounge, part of London Stock Exchange Group’s ELITE program, was launched in 2015. The 21 previously onboarded companies from 9 Central Eastern European countries are now beginning their fourth of eight executive training and coaching modules. Following these promising results, UniCredit — in partnership with London Stock Exchange Group — is onboarding the third round of clients in the ELITE UniCredit CEE Lounge RRO Eurasia and all other participating companies come from UniCredit’s network across Central and Eastern Europe.
«This program allows you to exit from the working rhythm and look at the situation from the outside, to assess the strategy, to see the potential risks and problems, and their possible solutions. It happens thanks to a tutoring staff, and valuable comments from other participants of the program. I am confident that the program will allow us to strengthen position in the international market and to find new opportunities for our business development », said Michael Lozovskiy, CFO at PRO Eurasia.
