“Roman is an experienced leader, an expert in strategic and operational consulting, organizational design, corporate policy development and team management. We are sure that his experience, combined with the achievements of Rinat Akhmetov Foundation and the Humanitarian Center, will make the Foundation's assistance even more extensive, and the staff work more effective,” commented Natalia Yemchenko, a member of the Foundation's Supervisory Board.
“The Foundation is the leader of Ukrainian charity. The scale and consistency of Rinat Akhmetov charitable Foundation’s work are unprecedented and already now may provide assistance to hundreds of thousands of people who find themselves in a difficult life situation. I am grateful to the founder of the Foundation for the opportunity to become part of the team, as well as for the ambitious tasks that he has set for the team,” Roman Rubchenko said.
