Work Experience

2010 - Now

Scouting Director - STARSYSTEM

"Scouting" : The activity of recruiting models. A very systematic technique for identifying, signing and developing aspiring models through a diversity and multiplicity of sources.
Our Concept : STARSYSTEM is a concept based on John Casablancas’ belief that quality scouting is the most important of all assets for a top modeling agency. We know by experience that most agencies, even when they have their own in-house scouts, are enthusiastic in developing a relationship with a powerful, trustworthy and well-structured scouting organization that will insure for them a steady flow of quality “new faces” and a very professional follow-up on the models.
Our Vision : our core business is scouting, placing and developing models, our ultimate goal being to discover the new generation of top models. The success stories and notoriety of our models, our contests and reality shows are and will contribute to build a prestigious brand intimately associated with beauty and fashion.

"Aleksandr is extremely serious in what he does, he has got strong professional attitude and skills. I have been mentoring him during his work beginnings and he always showed great commitment, focus and ability to manage the tasks he was given, respecting his role and his colleagues. I was extremely happy of his results and fast development. Despite being extremely careful at work, he is very polite and fun to work with, with a positive and ambitious mentality. I am very glad to give him a very positive reference and recommend him."

"I was lucky enough to know Alexander as a friend and sport partner before he started his newest venture. He is a driven individual, the kind who wakes up at 6am and drive on snowy roads to train before a fast packed day at the office. He knows his market inside out, managed models and employees for years, but above all he always manage to fit an extra card in his sleeve - and ideas to get around any obstacle. I believe in his endeavor, and I’m more than happy to be part of his adventure."
