A strong position in Russia

Get a strong position in a huge market


Strong interest in Nordic commodities and an increasing purchasing power makes the Russian market very appealing for Scandinavian brands. Through our insight in the culture, our solid network of partners and retailers and a focus on performance ORDO can help get a strong position in this lucrative market with 140 million inhabitants.

These days a lot of Scandinavian brands are looking into the possibilities of introducing themselves in the Russian market – or they are on the verge of optimizing the current presence in this market. Both makes sense as the Russian market holds great possibilities – and the interest for Nordic brands has only grown in the many years, I have handled sales and distribution in Russian within especially premium luxury brands, healthcare, mobile and it.

Yet Russia can be a hard nut to crack – because how do you secure the right approach in a gigantic country with a foreign culture influenced by both political and business-oriented challenges? In my experience it all comes down to a deep cultural insight, the right partners, and a strong focus on execution.

I have 11 years of experience of creating results in the Russian market – for brands such as B&O but also as General Manager for Nokia where I was directly placed in the field and helped secure a radical growth. Therefor I know how to create a team and a network of partners that performs best in class in this culture. And I know the right partners – not only within the large metropolis Moscow and St. Petersburg but also in the cities placed around the country with more than 1 million inhabitants. Cities with other cultural aspects that makes it important to have partners that know how to perform in these regions.

Niels is a great leader, with a strong eye for talent and how to develop and stretch them. He has strengths in building solid, trusted relationships, both externally with partners and internally. He puts a high bar for himself and his team, and achieved strong results in a fast-changing environment. I truly enjoyed working with Niels.
