Designated by Citigroup as the Top People Management Solution, TransparentBusiness is posed to set new standards of workforce management and, possibly, become a major tech company valued at tens of billions of dollars.

But what is the history of TransparentBusiness? Who are its principal decision-makers?

The Board of Directors of TransparentBusiness consists of four persons:
– Silvina Moschini, the Chairwoman and President;
– Alex Konanykhin, the CEO;
– Moe Vela and
– James Costos

Alex Konanykhin defected from the USSR in 1991 and was granted political asylum in the United States for opposing corruption in Russia. Because Alex had studied at the best tech college in Russia, he started an IT outsourcing business in New York City, which received a lot of acclaim during the Internet Craze years.

Silvina Moschini had worked in senior executive positions for VISA, Compaq and Patagon – one of the most successful FinTech startups of the Internet Craze era – before founding her business communications company in Miami in 2003. In addition to founding a successful company, she’s a prominent international speaker and industry expert, with hundreds of TV appearances.

In 2007, Silvina and Alex met, married and merged their businesses. In 2008, they moved to Italy and, to efficiently manage their staff in the United States and in other countries, they asked their tech team to develop the TransparentBusiness platform. Initially, it was just an internal tool of KMGi, their outsourcing company, but in 2016 Citigroup designated TransparentBusiness as the Top People Management Solution, as the result of an international competition with more than 200 software companies as contenders.

Encouraged by such an endorsement, Silvina and Alex presented TransparentBusiness to other major corporations and secured deals with Google, Microsoft, SAP, Cisco, ADP, Facebook, EY and some other major corporations.

During 2018-2019, legislators in 32 states introduced bills suggested by TransparentBusiness, seeking to make transparency mandatory for government contractors.

Moe Vela, formerly the Director of Administration of Vice President Joe Biden and Senior Advisor to Vice President Al Gore, is overseeing TransparentBusiness’ efforts to make transparency the new standard of public procurement.

James Costos, the recent U.S. Ambassador to the United States advises TransparentBusiness founders on the matters of international development.

Howard Needle, the CFO of TransparentBusiness is a former Managing Director of National Westminster Bank and Bank of America.

Andrew Winn, the Chief Investor Relations Officer of TransparentBusiness is a former Head of Credit, Europe, of Barclay Global Investors.

Our objective is to make TransparentBusiness synonymous with the category of Business Transparency, globally.
