empowering businesses
to drive route-to-market excellence

Hello and welcome to SM-Strategy.com!

My name is Sasha Makarenko, I am an independent management consultant.

For over 20 years I have built solid operational managerial experience  at HEINEKEN, by being a member of the Management teams, and by leading local sales organisations in several European markets. Next to that, I have mastered management consultancy by implementing business transformation programs,  as well as sales and distribution improvement projects in more than 20 countries around the globe.

I lived and worked in 7 countries - The Netherlands, Switzerland, Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. I have learnt a great deal of multi-cultural diversity.

I am greatly passionate about business growth opportunities, which can be achieved by shaping holistic Route-To-Market strategy, improving sales and distribution capabilities, and proactively driving required changes internally and externally.

I look forward to discussing your business challenges, and would be happy to support you as a consultant or sparring partner for your business growth initiatives.
