Alina will serve as National Director of Russia’s Central Federal District – the most populated district in the country and home to Moscow among several other large cities.

Graham Weihmiller, Chairman & CEO of BNI stated, “We are excited to expand our global footprint by bringing BNI to Russia. There’s a tremendous opportunity for BNI there, and we’re thrilled that Alina will join our network of business leaders who thoughtfully and energetically build the BNI brand. We look forward to supporting her at every step of the way, and to seeing the significant economic impact that BNI has on businesses and communities across the Central Federal District of Russia.”

Alina has ambitious goals for BNI in Russia’s Central Federal District – she is working towards having 4,000 BNI Members by Year 5 in this District alone. Data shows the overall BNI Member potential for the entire country in 10 years is a staggering 45,000 Members. 

“I am honored to join the BNI family, and to bring BNI’s proven system to Russian business leaders. I look forward to making a big impact on businesses and communities across the Central Federal District," commented Alina. 

BNI Global is actively looking for other Master Franchises that can bring BNI to additional parts of the country. Reach out to Gonzalo Checa, Global Market President, to learn more.
