VTB Corporate Magazine “Energy of Success” got The Best Start of 2006 Award at the III Annual Contest “Leader of Corporate Press-2006”. About 40 corporate media representatives participated in the contest. Within the All-Russian Forum of corporate press “CorPress-2006”, winners were awarded by Vladimir Zmeyuschenko, Chairman of Russia’s Corporate Media Guild. The Jury of the contest made a note of the high quality of the VTB magazine’s publications and its original design.
Energy of Success has been published since March 2006, and 5 editions have been issued since that. Against the backdrop of its growing population, the circulation of the magazine was increased from 8,500 to 10,000. VTB magazine is the only corporate edition in Russia with a global distribution. Geographically, the magazine covers more than 120 Russian cities and more than 80 countries of the CIS and Europe. Subscription to the magazine implies federal and regional executive bodies, including Russian President Office, Russian Government, local government bodies, VTB customers’ and partners’ offices in Russia and abroad.
In Energy of Success, we do not only tell about our own business, but also show realities both of Russia and of the world. The magazine is a platform for communication and for sharing expertise with our customers and partners. Addressing the magazine audience are heads of large companies, representatives of government bodies, artists and sportsmen.
To make it more comfortable for readers, we have launched an online version of the magazine, where contents of the coming issues are announced, articles from the current and previous issues are available, and there are some dedicated materials for our regular readers, which are not published in the printed format.
Presently, VTB Group is consolidating under a single brand 3 core Russian banks, 7 banks in West European countries, 4 banks in the CIS, and some outlets on the African continents. In light of this, VTB Group development strategy envisages publishing an English version of the magazine.
As Andrey Kostin, VTB Chairman and CEO, and Head of Coordination Board of the magazine said earlier: «Global dimension of VTB Group, which is well known not only in Russia, but also abroad, has become a major driving force behind the decision to start publishing Energy of Success magazine”.
