Liubov Duyko is again amongst St. Petersburg’s most influential women according to “Delovoy Peterburg” business newspaper

31 October 2014

It is an annual tradition of “Delovoy Peterburg” business newspaper to present the ranking of 50 most influential women of the city, it is devoted to the city’s women, to the female features in management and to the key sectors where the women’s effectiveness shows up in a most remarkable way. Lyubov Duyko is among 50 most influential women of St. Petersburg in various areas, from culture to medicine, from business to public administration, as presented by “Delovoy Peterburg”. Lyubov is the only advocate in the ranking and shares it with the Chair of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, actress Kseniya Rappoport, Transaero Air Company co-owner Olga Pleshakova, President of the charity foundation “Shag Navstrechu” Tatyana Zingarevich, Managing Director of MEDI Group Marina Kasumova, VTB Vice President Yulia Barinova and others enlisted in the ranking.

“Dear madams! It is the third time when our newspaper published the special addendum “St. Petersburg’s most influential women”. It is issued not in the best time for our economy, and we all know very well, that the search of the ways of recovery out of the crisis, as well as any other hard and ungrateful job, is placed onto the female shoulders. There is no surprise that our council of experts named Nadezhda Savinskaya as the most influential woman of the city in the year 2014. Many banks in the city are in quite a bad shape, some have already lost their licenses, their clients and counterparts are panicking and the very person who has to settle all this financial mess is the head of St. Petersburg department of the Central Bank. All of us – the city dwellers who entrusted their life earnings onto bank deposits and counting on the bankers’ assistance in making our most courageous dreams come true – wish Nadezhda Alexeyevna best of luck and patience.”

- Maksim Vasyukov, “Delovoy Peterburg” Editor-in-Chief.
