Dimitri in a few words

With extensive experience operating in international communications and media, I am a doer with a hands-on mentality. As an MBA-educated communications professional, I offer extensive experience operating in an international financial organisation with a track record of implementing brand identity in developing and managing content, producing print and online publications, as well as running marketing campaigns, and developing titles in book publishing.

The past three years, which I spent as a publishing manager and communications consultant, gave me an ample opportunity to hone a host of skills in building business platforms, producing and publishing books, designing covers, building email lists, and conducting promotional campaigns.

I launched my self-employed activities while continuing my education and broadening my perspectives on public affairs and strategic communications. This was a deliberate choice after a lengthy career in communications at the Nordic Investment Bank (NIB), an international financial institution.

At NIB, I was in charge of planning and creating content, producing publications with a strong focus on promoting the bank's brand identity. My biggest achievements were related to the development of the Bank’s digital communications channels—the website and newsletter.

You are very welcome to find more information about me and my experience on my websites Alehins.com and Dayreads.me as well as in my profile on LinkedIn.com.

If you are seeking someone
- with experience in communications, particularly in the brand-building of a financial institution;
- committed to the goal of the project, with eyes firmly on how you envision its desired outcome, and willing to go an extra mile to exceed the expectations;
- who will do a thorough research of market practices to use the best ideas and examples in the final delivery, –
I am happy to offer my skills and deliver the product as specified in your project requirements.
