After roles inside the European Commission, both in Brussels and at the EU delegation to Tajikistan, Sergey Golyshin has witnessed government proceedings first-hand. He earned campaign creds as well knocking on doors in Bristol for “Britain Stronger in Europe”. 

His government experience has made him a more informed recruiter with a realistic sense for the skills and character required to succeed in public affairs roles. Ever since joining Mavence, Sergey has proved especially adept at identifying emerging talent with fresh ideas and approaches to crack tough policy challenges in Europe and beyond.
