Mr. Aleksandrowicz has significant experience in the financial market: he started his career at the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, held managerial and executive positions in the risk management and retail lending in Delta Bank (GE Money Bank), ABN AMRO, and Citibank. Since 2005 to 2016 he was Co-founder and the CEO of ‘National Recovery Service’, leading account receivables company in Russia. For the last few years he has been developing a digital startup – ‘Doctors Next Door’ – a mobile healthcare platform. Artur Aleksandrowicz graduated from MGIMO, Financial Academy and is Harvard Business School alum.

“Artur Aleksandrowicz will be a significant asset to our team. I am certain that his profound expertise and detailed understanding of the Russian and international financial industry needs will bring UCB’s interaction with banks and other partners to a new level. Artur has extensive experience in launching and developing digital services for consumers, which is one of the bureau’s priorities for the next few years,” – said Dzhangir Dzhangirov, Senior Vice President of Sberbank and Chairman of the UCB Board of Directors.

“The shareholders are pleased with the bureau’s last year results. We are certain that UCB will continue to strengthen its leading position in the market, building up its database and developing innovative services. We express our gratitude to Nikolay Myasnikov, the former Acting CEO of UCB for all his efforts. He remains in the company as a Deputy CEO and will be in charge of the development of the existing business, interaction with key clients and partners,” – said Mikhail Komissar, the CEO of Interfax Group, and member of the UCB Board of Directors.

UCB stores more than 365 million credit files from 90 million consumers, which is significantly more than other bureaus. The bureau’s hit rate exceeds 97%. UCB was established in 2004 by the global consumer reporting company Experian and Interfax and worked under the name ‘Experian – Interfax’ until 2011. In 2011 Sberbank became a shareholder, and the company started operating under the name of United Credit Bureau.
