At the moment registering an entity, branch or representative office in Russia, a foreign citizen without residence permit is not allowed to be appointed as the first director of this company. The entity or office in Russia, after being registered, needs to get a formal permission which allows to employ foreign citizens and the foreign citizen needs to obtain a Russian work permit and corresponding visa.
In case you have no suitable person to be appointed formally as general director, we offer interim-management, also known like non-executive management functions to our clients. It is a temporary delegation of the general director function to one of our partners or our management company. Interim management may be divided into administrative and operational interim management.
- Administrative interim management is used for setting-up a business in Russia
- Operational interim management is usedfor handling internal challenges and during restructuring phases.
