The Regulatory Industry found Ilona 8 years ago, at the infancy of harmonisation of Eurasian Customs Union (EAC) regulations, when the famous GOST R Type Approvals were set to be replaced by EAC. As a Russian speaking project manager with a legal background, she was challenged to investigate new regulations and to deliver reliable solution for customers to follow during the migration, considering prevailing uncertainty and contradictions surrounding the new scheme. It was an ambiguous change to say the least, when her critical thinking and attention to details were paramount in securing not only one of a very first solutions in the industry, but also making it reliable, transparent, and simple for customers to understand. She has since worked for one of the biggest and most reputable companies in the regulatory industry supporting various aspects of the business, restlessly applying her vigorous approach to every assignment. On a personal level, Ilona shares many of the team’s values in regards to environmental causes, as well as being an eager advocate for minimalism, mindfulness and physical wellbeing. She finds active rest to be most restorative getting on her yoga mat on a daily basis. Ilona is married with two little children, with whom she enjoys adventure indoors or outdoors, letting imagination and creativity manifest in the smallest of things.
