Russell Bedford CEO Stephen Hamlet said: “I am delighted to see the continued expansion of our network into new territories and such positive developments in Central Asia, particularly, gaining representation in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. I’d like to extend my gratitude to our Kazakhstan firm for leading this initiative and supporting the ongoing development of the network.”
