Maxim Faldin is a co-founder of Wikimart and its co-CEO since the very first days of the company. A serial entrepreneur, Mr. Faldin co-founded several successful enterprises, including InCount, a Russian provider of B2B accounting services, one of the first accounting firms in Russia. Having built the company from scratch to become a top-20 Russian accounting firm, Maxim got accepted at Stanford Graduated School of Business in 2007.
In the summer of 2008, together with his classmate and business partner, Maxim founded Wikimart with the vision of building "eBay of Russia". But it was not until summer 2009 (right after his graduation from Stanford) that Maxim came back to Russia to lead the small Wikimart team. Mr. Faldin holds a degree in economics from the Moscow Sate University and MBA from Stanford GSB.
