Andrey is a self-made Russian industrialist. Over the past 20 years, he has co-founded a number of multi-billion-dollar businesses including fertiliser producer EuroChem, coal producer SUEK, and power generator SGC (now directly owned by SUEK) – which are among the largest companies globally within their industries. In the early 1990s, Andrey co-founded MDM Bank, which under his leadership became one of Russia’s most successful and largest private banks. In the 2000s, he exited MDM Bank, while investing in already privatised industries – fertilisers, coal and steel pipes (which he exited in 2006 through an IPO).
Andrey is the main beneficiary and a member of the Board of Directors of EuroChem Group and SUEK. He chairs SUEK’s Strategy Committee and EuroChem’s Nomination, Remuneration and Corporate Governance Committee. He sits on the Board of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, where he chairs its Mining Commission.
Andrey studied Physics at the Lomonosov Moscow State University and graduated from the Plekhanov Russian Academy of Economics, with a degree in Finance.
