BayRu CEO Aaron Block said, "In addition to serving on our advisory board, each gentleman has been my partner, co-investor, client and/or friend. Together, they have over 150 years of Internet and Russian business experience. It's very humbling and inspiring to learn from their tremendous successes."
Advisory board member Jonathan Tubb was one of the first advisors to join BayRu. He remarked, "Like many others in Russia, I've had trouble finding a trusted international shopping partner in Russia. Customs clearance, payments, returns...everything is a bit more difficult here. Needless to say, I'm not only an advisor but also a happy BayRu customer."
The new advisory board meets quarterly and members are compensated with BayRu stock. Not a bad deal, considering that the company is growing 10% - 30% per month.
Advisor Steve Shpilsky stated, "The founders managed to bring together a mix of seasoned operators and savvy investors. They partner with world-class organizations like eBay, Amazon, Alfa-Bank, and Ozon.ru. Their technology is second-to-none. I jumped at the chance to help them catalyze their growth in the Russian market."
BayRu is a fast growing service that, for the first time, provides Russians safe, convenient access to a wide variety of international goods. BayRu brings Russian consumers the world’s specialty goods via an “American”
