No.1 Russia-based recruitment vertical HeadHunter has promoted former deputy general director Dmitry Sergienkov to CEO. He replaces Mikhail Zhukov, who has been appointed president, retaining his seat on the board of directors. The changes will take effect on March 1. 

Sergienkov has ten years of experience in mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions, both inside and outside Russia. He has been with HeadHunter since 2017, as deputy CEO since 2021, and prior to that as director of strategy and product development. 

In his new role of president, former CEO Zhukov will be involved in developing relations with key shareholders and authorities, as well as risk management. In addition, he will continue to work with management and monitor the strategy execution.

Sergienkov said, “I am grateful to the board and Mikhail for the opportunity and to all of our employees for their tremendous support over the years. With labor markets worldwide in a state of fundamental change, I am convinced that we are uniquely positioned, as one of the largest global players in internet recruiting, to realize all the opportunities this entails in the new phase of the company’s life.”
