Business Development Officer, TravelWorks
Anna joined TravelWorks Russia when the company just established its regional partner network and has been a part of the growth process that saw TravelWorks becoming an international organisation based in two countries and recruiting online in the whole CIS region. Having volunteered and participated in the US J-1 programs with TravelWorks during her studies, Anna decided to make her career out of pushing mental boundaries and barriers for youth and students who don’t settle for being just tourists, but want to be real travellers. Playing a variety of roles in sales and team management, Anna keeps the team on their toes with innovative and breaking ideas on new industry trends in Russian-speaking countries. She knows how to influence the behaviour and choices of Russian students as well as their parents. Due to her previous experience as an Overseas Relation Officer, she has a thorough understanding of not only local, but global consumer trends, new markets, travelling dynamics, challenges and impact of new technologies.
