Biography

Most of time I live in St. Petersburg, Russia. 

Finished Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University in 2007 on the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics. I started working during my 2nd year of university. My first employer was the biggest Gold Partner in Russia. There I first met Navision. It was 14 years ago… Wow, it seemed to be like yesterday. 

After 2 years, I moved to customer side, an international IT company, which used Navision 3.7 worldwide. It was a wonderful period, I traveled a lot, met new people, solved thousands of support cases, and made several upgrades. But it was necessary to move further, and I co-founded NavDesign. I saw I big perspective in NAV flexibility, simplicity and extensibility. Here we focused on creation of ISV solutions, mostly in project management and budgeting areas. We raised from 3 people to 17 in 3 years. Then the political situation worsened, and it became difficult to compete with big partners. And so, I decided to sell the company. 

I found acquirer quickly, sold the company and headed into the cloud development department inside this company. I worked in this position for 2 years, learned AI and Machine Learning; that was an interesting time. But the company was not focused on NAV. And as I still loved NAV.

I decided to leave and founded startup AirApps. The main focus of this company is to extend Dynamics 365 Business Central with modern smart apps and help other partners to move their IP to the cloud by teaching them or making all the job for them.
 
My passion is to generate new ideas and bring them to life.
Since May 18 - an MVP in Business Solutions
