One of the main values of the company is growth, so we are always happy when our colleagues move up the career ladder within the company. Now we have a very strong team of folks who have been working in Concorde Capital for a long time and have gone through almost all stages of their career evolution,” commented Igor Mazepa, CEO of Concorde Capital.
