Waves welcomes new CFO

Maria Borovikova joins us from a background in banking and finance, representing a wealth of experience.

Waves welcomes a new Chief Financial Officer: Maria Borovikova.

Maria brings a great deal of experience and expertise to the Waves team and ecosystem, having spent the first two years of her career with Deloitte in the field of bank auditing. She then spent six years with CTC Media Inc, Russia’s leading independent broadcasting company. CTC offers four free-to-air TV channels throughout Russia, with a potential audience of over 150 million viewers, plus an additional presence in countries around the world including the US and Australia through CTC International. During her time with the company, Maria was responsible for the finances of CTC International, and for two TV channels within the CIS.

Most recently, she spent two years at Yandex.Money, Russia’s largest online payment service, as Head of Financial Reporting Department. The move to Waves is therefore both a natural and challenging progression to her.

“It is a challenge for me to join Waves,” Maria comments. “It is a challenge to work with cutting-edge technologies, with creative people, and to work in a market that is developing at a tremendous pace. It means riding the crest of a wave.”

“We’re very excited to welcome Maria to the Waves team,” adds Waves CEO Sasha Ivanov. “Her enthusiasm, her knowledge of the banking and electronic payments industries, as well as her extensive experience with finance, make her the perfect choice for our new CFO. We look forward to working with her in the months and years to come.”
