Andrey S. Dolgiy
Co-founder, President and CEO
Andrey Dolgiy began his career as an Air Force officer after graduating from A.F. Mozhaysky Military-Space Academy at the peak of the Soviet era. The new, capitalist economy reality was scary for many but viewed as a life opportunity for Andrey. A born entrepreneur, he realized the need to make his ideas come truth assuming full responsibility for its execution, success, or failure. He started by rebuilding economic and technology ties on the post-Soviet space lost during the transition from planned to free economy and worked hard in various cross-industries fields of the corporate world – oil and gas trading, heavy machinery and commodity brokerage, metallurgy and ore processing, financial services, distressed corporation recovery, mining, and many others.
As an expert, Andrey contributed the experience and skills earned into the creation of the new international business collaboration model which resulted in an intergovernmental treaty and eventually became the Custom Union. Going beyond Central Asia and Eurasia to the Asia-Pacific macro-region Andrey dedicates his knowledge and efforts to further extend united market advantages and benefit from what is developing as New Silk Road nowadays. Mr.Dolgiy also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Corporate Management from Moscow University of Finance and Law.
