About

Eastern Consulting is a Russian firm that helps international companies establish or expand their Russian operations.

We provide a comprehensive list of market entry and development services from initial sector research to dealing with the legalities of the business and local authorities. We can assist in every aspect of market entry from the initial planning process to the opening and success of a new operation.

Who we are

We offer the experience and expertise of highly qualified and successful local Russian business experts. We are relatively small but flexible, and we can adapt easily to our clients' needs. We always put our clients first and do not work with their competitors.

Location

We are located in Pskov, a medium sized city in Northwest Russia, about 300km (185 miles) from St. Petersburg and 850km (530 miles) from Moscow. Traveling to meet clients in not an issue.

Our Purpose

In our experience it is very difficult for International companies to investigate the Russian market and create a new sustainable business within that market. It is also difficult for those companies to hire and keep experienced full time Russian speaking employees.

We take all of those burdens and tasks off the backs of new market development managers. We can take a expanding company from the idea of entering the Russian market to a full staffed new operation.

Testimonials

In 2008 HORTON decided to enter the Russian market. Ms Olga Savitskaya from Eastern Consulting had been working for HORTON on a freelance contract basis from September 2008 till September 2014, and reported to me from 2012 till 2014.

Olga Savitskaya had supported Horton during the entire market entry process from zero presence in Russia to serial supplies. The process entailed initial market research, introduction of HORTON to all key OEM and Tier 1 clients, getting new business for HORTON, getting through all stages of technical approvals and tests, conducting negotiations at all levels, providing support of supplies and business processes on a daily basis, and making business trips alone or with HORTONs staff.

We would like to particularly note the most difficult yet the most attractive project a fan clutch for YaMZ 536 series engine. In August 2014 the project reached the serial supplies phase. During implementation of this project with direct Olgas involvement we were able to push our main competitor out of this project.

Being a good team player, Olga has strong leadership and organizing skills, demonstrates persuasiveness and solid presentation skills.

In our opinion, Ms Savitskaya is a reliable person who possesses all skills required for developing someones business in Russia.
