"I’m glad to be back to Auriga again. After spending some time apart and working at other places, I started realizing even better what brilliant people we have gathered here, what high level of maturity has been reached over almost 20 years of operation, and what huge potential the company has. It was a pleasant surprise to discover that despite the economic downtime, the company remained stable, flexible and agile, truly focused on bringing maximum value; the people are still full of energy and ideas. We are preparing to launch a number of interesting initiatives and partnership programs. So, I’m optimistically looking into the future and expecting a lot of fun from hard work of converting this big potential into a better market position over the next two years.”
