2015 RBC Awards
For the second year in a row, Deloitte CIS has been chosen as the independent auditor for the 2015 RBC Awards, one of the most prestigious honours recognising business achievements in Russia. A high profile panel of experts, including the chief editors of RBC Information Services, members of the political and business community, government officials, and other public figures selected the winners, which included the most notable business leaders, companies, and projects in 2015, in three categories, "People", "Companies", and "Community".
Like last year, Deloitte professionals assessed the compliance of the winner selection process with the judging criteria at every stage, including the secret vote on the shortlisted candidates. We are pleased to note the active involvement and objectivity of the panel in discussing the nominees and increased interest of the audience in the awards ceremony.
This year, media holding, RBC Group, introduced a regional award, the “2015 St. Petersburg RBC Award”, through which RBC Group is continuing its partnership with Deloitte CIS. The winners of business awards were announced at the ceremonies held on 30 November in St. Petersburg and on 3 December in Moscow.
The regional award was aimed at raising awareness of the significant developments in the economy and entrepreneurship in St. Petersburg. It identified the growth leaders in the Northwest Federal District.
"The city should know who its heroes are. This award allows us to share the best practices. Now is the time when we should be prepared for anything; opinions, ideas, and conclusions are appreciated as food for thought", said Director of Deloitte St. Petersburg, Sharif Galeev, emphasising the significance of the event.
