‘Yandex.Money is currently the leading online payment service in Russia, both as an e-wallet for consumers and a payment service provider for businesses. Maria Gracheva is a remarkable leader who has been responsible for a great portion of Yandex.Money success over the years,’ says Alexander Shulgin, Chief Operating Officer at Yandex in Russia. ‘Maria has been leading different teams at Yandex.Money for over a decade and has acquired very deep knowledge of the industry. We appreciate her achievements and hope that the new CEO will ensure that Yandex.Money not only continues to lead the way in online payments, but also expands its activities. Eventually, this will help us create an ecosystem to forecast and fulfill all payment needs of companies and individuals in different life and business situations’.

‘Yandex.Money has an important goal to achieve - not only does the company need to meet the time challenges and market demands but also to stay ahead of the curve, developing convenient and innovative services for both businesses and individuals,’ says Lev Khasis, First Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of Sberbank Russia. ‘We expect that Ivan Glazachev’s experience and knowledge will be useful for company’s clients and make a positive contribution to its business’.

He spent the last 10 years at Russian Standard Bank and became a member of the Board in 2012. He served as the Executive Director responsible for acquiring department and transactional business. With his active participation, Russian Standard Bank became the third biggest player in acquiring industry in Russia and developed and implemented the biggest white label card-to-card money transfer platform, which is now used by many commercial organizations in Russia.
