Sergey Detyuk, Chief Information Officer of Metinvest Group:
"Our task is to find opportunities in the digital market that are best fit for our business, and on their basis implement projects and create IT-services capable to support Metinvest Group's development. Digital technologies are one of key elements for the business transformation. On this journey, both understanding and willingness of the business to change, and the capability to realize non-standard projects effectively have similar importance. Establishment of Metinvest Digital is not just about allocating IT in a separate legal entity. We set the task for ourselves to build such collaborative culture and work environment in the company that will inspire and motivate our IT-professionals to create and implement the best digital solutions for Metinvest Group, and for external market – in the future."
