In April 2014, the Ekonomika Publishing House released its highly-reputed ranking of the country’s 100 best top managers. This year the team of researchers used a new methodology and compiled only the nation-wide ranking of the best top managers without industry specific rankings. The ranking has once again demonstrated that the national law firms dominated on Ukrainian legal market (out of four partners listed in the ranking, no one was from the international law firm).
Michael Kharenko, Sayenko Kharenko’s co-managing partner, was named one of the top four managers of Ukraine’s legal market and listed among 100 best top managers nation-wide, alongside the CEOs of DTEK, 1+1, Kyivstar, Galnaftogaz, Zaporozhstal, MHP, Roshen and other captains of industry. In 2012 and 2013, Michael was named the No.1 top manager of Ukraine’s legal market.
For already eighteen years “TOP-100. Ukraine's Best Top-Managers” ranking has been recognizing outstanding business leaders in various industry sectors, including the legal services sector. In 2014, different groups of experts assessed the efficiency of the CEOs of Ukraine’s leading companies according to four criteria: personal qualities, the frequency of mentions in the media, online voting and style.
