My main responsibilities in the Division are to advise international investors on establishing operations in Latvia and on various inter-institutional cooperation as well as provide overall leadership and support for our team.
Prior to heading the Investment Promotion Division, I was the Deputy Director of LIAA’s Business Incubator in the port city of Liepaja where I advised investors about possibilities for business in the region and acquired broad experience in assisting start-up development. In my earlier career at LIAA, I worked at the Agency’s headquarters in Riga as the lead advisor for investors considering setting up operations specifically in transport & logistics, IT & Global Business Services (GBS) and metaworking sectors.
Prior to joining LIAA in 2011, I worked in the construction industry preparing financial estimates as well as participating in and managing various national and international projects that provided solutions to a number of economic and social issues.
I hold a master’s degree in business administration from the Swiss Business School in Zurich, Switzerland, and a master in finance from BA School of Business and Finance in Riga, Latvia.
