Elshan personally gave this name to GRBS putting "G" first and "R" second as a token of high respect to his previous business partner Mr. Guliyev, who was Elshan's former employer and mentor. It should be noted that success of GRBS was mainly due to Elshan’s interpersonal, business and financial management skills, as well as his profound multilingual communication abilities and unmatchable teaching skills in the areas including but not limited to Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Financial Management, Performance Management, Tax Accounting, Corporate Reporting and especially IFRS. Elshan was even recognized by GRBS staff as a nominee for the Efficiency and Frugality of the Year Award. Elshan also played tremendous role in implementation of IFRS in Azerbaijan.
