Baltimore, MD, March 23, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Award honors the Baltimore area’s management all-stars – the leaders who work behind the scenes day in and day out to build the top companies. The executive honorees are chosen based on their display of ethics, leadership, collaboration, creativity, and dedication and support to their organizations’ missions.
Alexander Chizhik spent the first six years of his legal career as a Naval JAG officer, where he learned the skill of finding an answer — and finding it fast. “In my experience, a general counsel must be an expert generalist,” Alex says. “That means knowing enough about the varied legal topics to be able to pose the right questions to the right people who are experts in a particular field, and knowing when to dig deeper into an issue by targeted research.”
One of Alex’s favorite quotes is: “Don’t let your past limit your future. The future is unwritten.” His work habits can be summarized as “constantly learning, constantly improving and constantly meeting daily challenges head on.”
As an Operating COO and Corporate General Counsel, Alex has a strong focus on all aspects of VIMRO's financial, administrative, human resource and regulatory compliance operations. In the last two years, Alex implemented a new integrated accounting and time- and expense-keeping system, which allowed the company to scale from a staff of 26 to nearly 70 within a year without losing control over management. He applied the management skills he learned in the Navy to establish a management structure that gives his people the necessary tools to make operational decisions on their own without engaging executive management every time.
Alex convinced his executive team of a need to restructure the company for a better market position and future investment opportunities. As a result, the company initiated an introspective review of its capabilities and began a change that ultimately led to the renaming and restructuring of the company and honing of the marketing message to the marketplace.
The VIMRO Team Congratulates Alex on a well-earned award and recognition.
