Following an open competition, Mykhailo Hrybanov was appointed the new head of the Odesa Customs of the State Customs Service. 58 candidates competed for a leading position at Odesa Customs. Within 45 days, the competition committee conducted three selection stages, which were preceded by online testing for knowledge of the Basic Law of Ukraine. Five applicants reached the final interviews with the head of the State Customs Service, where Hrybanov won.

The head of Odesa Customs underwent specialized education in the Academy of Customs Service of Ukraine and has experience in customs and business.
