Bentley’s arrival in Yekaterinburg put off, city council says

Yekaterinburg municipal council denied the upcoming introduction of a Bentley representation and show room in town.

‘The opening of a show room has been postponed because of the current financial crisis. In case the trouble isn’t long-lasting, the representation will start operating in Yekaterinburg in 2010 or 2011,’ Deputy Mayor Viktor Konteev’s press officer Ilona Starodubtseva said to an UrBC reporter.

Meanwhile, Stuart McCullough, Bentley's Board Member for Sales and Marketing, announced earlier that their office would appear in Yekaterinburg very soon.

‘We keep on breaking onto the Russian market, we are building up on sales outside Moscow and Saint Petersburg, and we are about to set up a representation in Yekaterinburg,’ he said.
