HE MAY HAIL FROM a small town in East Kazakhstan, with
a population just under 20,000, but there was nothing
small about Roman Yevseyev's dreams.
At the age of 16, Yevseyev moved to England, where
he completed his Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Business
and Management at Oxford Brookes University. He
then relocated to Beijing to take an intensive Mandarin
language course before heading to the United Arab
Emirates to work.
His educational journey didn't stop there.
In 2013, Yevseyev arrived in Canada as an international student to complete Seneca's Global Logistics &
Supply Chain Management program.
"Learning about different cultures opens up your
point of view," Yevseyev says.
Soon after graduation, he began a purchasing/
supply specialist position with Maple Leaf Foods Inc.,
eventually advancing within the company to become
a senior demand planning analyst.

Education travels well

That experience led him to his next career at Spin
Master, the Canadian global toy and entertainment
company behind iconic brands like Etch A Sketch and
Air Hogs, the well-known line of toy airplanes, helicopters, rockets and cars.
His responsibilities at Spin Master, as senior
demand planner and later as a category analyst and
demand planning lead, were not child's play, but he did
help corporate giants like Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon.ca get toys to children around the world.
He was well-prepared for the task, citing his Seneca
education and professors with real-world working
knowledge as a catalyst for his success.
"All of my teachers worked in the industry,"
Yevseyev says. "Some of them were actually working in
the industry while teaching part time."
Yevseyev has recently celebrated the beginning of
a new role, Demand Planning Manager at Tilley Endurables, a Canadian hat and apparel brand.
Since completing his studies, he has also used his
Seneca-honed business savvy to create his own company. In 2017, he and a friend launched Steam-Bros,
which rents steam cleaning equipment for business
and residential use.
Ever grateful to the school that helped launch
his career, Yevseyev continues to return to
campus to participate in alumni panels, helping current
students navigate their own paths in supply chain
management.
"[Giving back] is a must-do thing for all grads. It not
only gives you a good feeling but helps others," he says.
Wherever his dreams take him, Yevseyev knows he's
got an education that will travel with him.
