ICG was founded in 2006 as a strategic business development tool supporting foreign businesses in Russia, and Russian businesses in Europe, North America and South-East Asia. Since 2008, it has become a leading strategic independent advisory think tank for the boards of directors of the largest international and Russian banks and companies (Gazprom, Rosneft, Sberbank, VTB Group, Russian Railways, Sovcomflot, United Aircraft Corporation, etc.). ICG has proven record of providing non-executive directors with an in-depth analysis of strategic management decisions, offering alternative solutions, adapting world's best corporate governance, strategic management practices and banking technologies to national specifics of doing business in various countries.
It was our task to audit strategic offers presented to the boards of directors of most important Russian clients by the leading global strategy consulting companies like McKinsey, BCG, Bain and Rolland Berger, as well as by international audit and consulting companies Ernst and Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Accenture and BDO Unicon.
Slogan – short, simple and clear
Taking into consideration the latest trends in building global value chains which require national diversity in the boards of directors more than before, we would like to offer our expertise in providing second opinion as non-executive/independent directors or strategy implementation advisors (shadow directors) to boards of directors (BoDs) in diversified and integrated multiple business units' banks and companies in Europe, North America and South-East Asia.
