He is an excellent problem-solver, able to make decisions and act independently, see issues both from strategic and details perspective, analyse and forecast issues impact, communicate clearly and manage things on priority. I highly appreciate Konstantin’s overall leadership contribution during the last 9 years, which allowed to have a stable, efficient, compliant and internal customer-oriented finance service and finance support, enabling about four times business and organizational growth during this period, as well as smooth and successful passing of several internal, external and tax audits.

Gebhard Rogenhofer

Konstantin is one of the most competent finance professionals that I have had the pleasure to work with. When he is given a problem he spends time to fully understand all the implications before the designing a plan of how to overcome it. He is capable to deal with issues ranging from system and processes to intricate complicated international tax issues. He is able to manage a diverse team maintaining motivation and enthusiasm no matter how difficult the circumstances. His foresight in dealing with issues at an early stage has saved the company in many instances.

I have worked with Konstantin for almost 7 years. I have always been impressed by his knowledge and deep understanding of IFRS requirements, taxation rules, and ERP system interdependencies. I truly consider Konstantin as one of the best experts in these areas.

During several years I worked closely together with Konstantin. His local financial experience helped us a lot to stabilize the Finance department of our entity in Ukraine. As tax expert he is absolutely at a very high level. Complex financial and tax subjects Konstantin solved and his great contribution from Finance perspective to the development of the business in Ukraine has been of an enormous value. Konstantin is an integer and high Finance and tax professional.

Piet Karemaker

Head of Finance Services, Country Cluster EAME (2015)

SYNGENTA (EAME)

…the bookkeeping was not up to international standards. The company operated on two different SAP systems, trial balances showed fluctuating differences and product costing was not accurate at all, etc. Within short time period Konstantin gained the overview on the complex business model of TOV Syngenta and solved together with the team one by one the problems. With reliable figures Finance rebuilt the trust of Group Finance and local Management supporting the following growth of TOV Syngenta. Konstantin’s leadership qualifications are reflected in a for CIS countries small staff fluctuation. I can recommend Konstantin to anyone looking for a competent and integral CFO.
