EM, the leading strategic communications and investor relations consultancy for clients in Russia, China and other emerging markets, today announces three senior hires to further strengthen its market-leading offering.
Jamie Hyman joins in London and strengthens EM’s fast-expanding tech and financial services practices. She has extensive experience developing and executing communications strategies for clients including banks, fintechs and asset managers. Jamie is a former journalist with 20 years’ experience, and before making the switch to PR, she was an editor for Waters Technology and Inside Data Management.
Yury Krebs is one of the top IR professionals in the market and has served as IR director at two major London-listed Russian corporates, VTB Bank and Sistema. While in Valencia, he has been working on new solutions in the fields of digital reporting and financial data visualisation.
Daria Khilenkova brings top-class financial communications know-how to the EM team in Moscow. As VP for corporate communications and public affairs of Renaissance Capital, Daria has more than 15 years of experience working across high-opportunity emerging and frontier markets in the EMEA region, including those in Sub-Saharan and North Africa, as well as deep knowledge of the financial and investment banking worlds.
“2020 has been a wild ride for everyone, but we have been in this game long enough to know that crises are not to be wasted. We used the lockdown to invest in our team, to develop new skills and ideas, and above all to make sure we remained as relevant and valuable as possible to our clients. We are thrilled now to be reinforcing the team still further – Jamie, Yury and Daria are all outstanding in their fields and will help us to take our capacity, skillset and geographic reach to new levels.”
