Russian businessman, banker, former Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation (1996-1997) in charge of economic, Vladimir Potanin is one of Russia's oligarchs. He is currently president of Interros, a holding company that controls the world's largest producer of nickel, Norilsk Nickel, which represents1.4% of Russian GDP. Vladimir Potanin's fortune was estimated by Forbes at $ 17.8 billion in 2011.
In 1978, Vladimir Potanin began studying at the Faculty of International Economic Relations of the former USSR, and at the Institute of International Relations in Moscow. Graduated in 1983, Potanin was recruited by the export department of the Ministry of Foreign Trade, where he evolved day by day and made his network until 1990
This year, Russia began a revolution by opening its private sector. Potanin left office to create with Mikhail Prokhorov the company Interros Holding Company.
In 1993, the holding company acquired MMC Norilsk Nickel, thanks to the Onexim Bank chaired at this time by Potanin. Like all Russian oligarchs, Potanin was among the first to benefit from the privatization of many Russian companies and conglomerates after the collapse of the USSR.
With a market capitalization of his holdings of nearly $ 30 billion in January 2007, the holding Interros has assets in many areas such as energy with Russia Petroleum, finance with Rosbank, metals with Norilsk Nickel and Polyus Gold (60 %) or with Rambler media TV.
