Eric Block's profile

Hi, I'm Eric Block (aka Юрий Вальков). I work for MaxReform since 2019.


I was born in the former USSR – this gave me a very important life skill – never give up and overcome obstacles, value freedom, and fight to reach goals.

I had a chance to study in the USA. I graduated from The University of Akron, in Akron, Ohio. My major was Business Administration/International Business.

Later I have been living and working in Venezuela, South America, and the Russian Federation.
