Yan Belyaev, the founder of the largest international footwear exhibition in Russia, Euro Shoes premiere collection, has become the General Director since February 1, 2023 National Shoe Union (NOBS), replacing Natalia Demidova in this position, who was appointed Advisor and remained a member of the Board of the industry organization.

“The main goal for the shoe community today is to join forces, all our efforts, resources and opportunities. Only in this way will the Russian shoe market remain civilized, only in this way will it be able to survive and develop in the future,” believes Yan Belyaev.
