As an expert in the area of anti-corruption and corporate governance, Brook - a graduate of Cambridge and Harvard - has garnered over 15 years’ experience in the field of business standards and specialist knowledge of the Russia region.
Brook came on board with IBLF in 2005 as Executive Director for its Russia operations. After dramatically expanding IBLF's presence and impact in the region, he took on full oversight of the business standards programme across the organisation. Currently, Brook also manages IBLF's regional activities spanning Russia, India and China.
Brook was a senior manager with General Electric during the nineties, where he held high responsibility positions in business development, sales and marketing in Western and Eastern Europe.
In 2001, Brook set up his own management consultancy, Business Interchange (UK) Ltd., which provides strategy and financial advice to Russian companies seeking to attract foreign investment. Since then, he has worked extensively with public sector organisations and NGOs in Russia on projects funded by USAID, TACIS and DFID.
"I feel inspired to lead IBLF's work on business standards and corporate governance, where we continue to attract a high level of involvement from the senior ranks of business. From a regional standpoint, in Russia, India and China we provide a neutral forum for executives to debate critical issues, exchange best practices and discuss new ways of doing business
Brook regularly appears at international conferences on business in Russia and has had articles published in several publications including The Times, International Heralds Tribune and Vedomosti. He has a strong interest in Russian culture and is a Director of Pushkin House - a Russian cultural association based in London.Related links
