CPLG Pullman has promoted Anna Artyukhova to the position of Managing Director for Russia and CIS.

In her new role, Anna will lead the Moscow team in its strategy to drive growth for clients and expand the company’s base of leading entertainment and classic brands. Anna will continue to report into Slawomir Ekiert, MD CEE & Nordics at CPLG, who will work with Anna to strategically develop the company’s business in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

Maarten Weck, Executive Vice President and MD of CPLG, says: “Anna has played a pivotal role in building our joint venture in Russia and has proved to be a very keen, effective and energetic leader. We are confident that Anna will propel our business to the next level with passion, creativity and drive.”

Based in Moscow, CPLG Pullman was formed in 2018 when CPLG acquired a 49% stake in Pullman Licensing LLC, a leading Russian licensing agency owned by Igor Kuleshov, President and owner of Gulliver Holdings, one of Russia’s premier toy and clothing manufacturers and distributors.

Anna says: “Under the CPLG Pullman joint venture, we have made significant progress growing our licensors' properties in Russia and CIS. I look forward in my new role to working with the Moscow team as part of the global CPLG family to propel further growth for our clients and to expand our business in the territory.”

Anna Artyukhova joined Pullman in 2015 as Category Manager before being promoted to Commercial Director in 2017. Prior to that, she held roles at Plus Licens and C-Toys, a division of Russian children’s retailer Detsky Mir.
