Investment and stability, social issues and a number of charitable projects: about the work of Ilgiz Valitov, one of the well-known top managers of Russia.
It has long been fairly noted that the main thing in business development is people. Based on this principle, you can really achieve success in your business. Moreover, it is possibleto make sure that personal professional contributions, together with major investments in certain sectors of the economy,givereal results, strengthen the industrial and financial potential of companies, and, ultimately, provide people with jobs and stable wages. This approach, in the opinion of many experts, is demonstrated by Ilgiz N. Valitov, one of the Russia'sleading topmanagers who led various investment areas of VTB and Vnesheconombank.
Bank investments under the patronage of Ilgiz Valitov in the industrial sector and in real areas of economic development in different years have significantly increased the potential of the automotive, construction, chemical, machine-building, energy, and agro-industrial sectors.
THOUSANDS OF NEW JOBS
Suffice it to name a few large companies in the investment development of which Ilgiz Valitov was directly involved: KAMAZ, a concrete plant in the Leningrad region, the Kazan modern packaging plant – a unique full-cycle enterprise, and the TikhvinFreight Car Building plant (now it produces up to 10,000 cars with increased load capacity and operating life per year) – the largest machine-building facility built in Europe. In addition, today it is a city-forming enterprise, where five thousand new jobs have been created.
In due time with support of Ilgiz Valitov large projects in Krasnoyarsk region for the total sum of 175 billion roubles (participation of "Vnesheconombank" - 100 billion roubles) have been realized. And again here it is a question of creation more than 10 thousand new workplaces!
Thanks to VEB's credit support; it was also possible to establish the Russian agricultural holding Miratorg, which is now one of the largest companies in Russia's agricultural sector. 10 years ago Vnesheconombank started financing the Miratorg Beef Production Project in the Bryansk Region (over 24 billion rubles were invested in the project, 21 billion of which were allocated by VEB). Ilgiz Valitov’s attraction of banking resources made it possible to return an additional 200,000 hectares of abandoned land to agricultural turnover. The total number of cattle amounted to 500,000 and more than three dozen new, modern farms were built. The cost of the project amounted to 871.5 million dollars (Vnesheconombank loan - 742 million dollars). Such effective investments made it possible to develop livestock breeding complexes in the Orel, Kaluga, Bryansk, Tula, Smolensk and Kursk regions... Three years ago Miratorg Holding was included in the list of systemically important enterprises of the Russian Federation.
It was Ilgiz Valitov's experience, professionalism and competent approach as Head of the Natural Resources and Construction Directorate of Vnesheconombank that also made it possible to form whole clusters for the production of cars and car components in the Kaluga Region. This includes the construction of such production facilities as “Volkswagen Rus” and “Peugeot Citroën Mitsubishi Automobiles” in the Rosva Industrial Park. It should be noted that as a result of the project implementation in the period from 2008 to 2019, the total amount of tax revenue to the budgets of all levels was more than80 billion rubles, and the enterprises provided thousands of employees with new jobs.
HUNDREDS OF INVESTMENT PROJECTS
New high-paid jobs were also created with the participation of Ilgiz Valitovdue to a project to build a modern mining and processing complex in the Perm region – theVerkhnekamsk Potash Company. Last year, Russian Minister of Industry Denis Manturov also assessed the importance of this project for the development of the national economy and industry in the region. It should be noted that the total investment in the project will amount to 87 billion roubles.
Another successful investment project involving Ilgiz Valitov is the construction and launch of production of antibiotics and anti-cancer drugs at the Terbuny Open Economic Zone in the Lipetsk Region. The company in question is Rafarma, which has received a loan of approximately 2.7 billion rubles. Today the plant meets the needs of the population of six major regions of Russia, in particular, Moscow, the Moscow region, the Krasnodar Territory, St. Petersburg, the Republics of Bashkortostan and Tatarstan.
Moreover, the project has significantly reduced the share of imported medicines. It should be noted that the project was supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Health and Social Development and the Lipetsk Region Administration.
Again, this is only a part of the investment projects that were implemented under the patronage of Ilgiz N. Valitov. Over the years, he has managed to implement several hundred investment projects in various sectors of the Russian economy, which are estimated at trillions of roubles.
FOCUS ON RESULTS, ON THE PERSON AT WORK
Precise planning, control, a focus on results, a focus on the person at work, on their motivation – thisis what distinguishes Ilgiz Valitov. Creating and launching new, modern production facilities has been a kind of guarantee of social stability, prospects and individual regions and the country as a whole. Ilgiz Valitov's patronage allowed a number of enterprises and holdings to become one of the best companies and the locomotive of the Russian economy.
For reference: in 2018, Vnesheconombank was headed by former First Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Igor Shuvalov. Vnesheconombank's operations are regulated by federal legislation rather than by the Bank of Russia and are one of the most important instruments for implementing Russia's economic policy. The Bank is engaged in overcoming restrictions on infrastructure growth, increasing the efficiency of natural resource use, developing progressive and knowledge-intensive areas, implementing particularly important industrial projects and supporting business.
KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE
Ilgiz Valitov graduated from the Suvorov Military School and received his first higher education after graduating from the Golitsyn Frontier Military and Political School of the USSR KGB (later – coursesof the USSR KGB). He took part in military operations on the Soviet-Afghan border. He also graduated from Kazan Finance and Economics Institute with success. The acquired versatile experience and knowledge allowed him to develop further as a professional manager in the highest positions and toparticipate in the implementation of major projects of national importance.
As early as 1994, Ilgiz Valitov was appointed as Director of a major company ROSTEK-Kama, later he was the Manager of the Tatar branch of Vneshtorgbank in Kazan, Vice-President of VTB Bank, the Head of the Natural Resources and Construction Directorate of Vnesheconombank, and a member of the Board of Directors of KAMAZ OJSC.
As Ilgiz Valitov's colleagues note, the tremendous dedication to his work allowed him not only to realize his potential in developing business projects, but also to provide significant assistance to various charitable organizations and associations. Such charity is not a one-time thing, but systematic support for those who need it, those who help others, doing it efficiently and professionally.
Ilgiz Valitov does not advertise work within the framework of his charitable projects. However, it is known that such support is constantly provided to a number of organizations: the Foundation for Assistance in Providing Medical-Social and Rehabilitation Assistance to Children with Severe Injuries and their Consequences (the foundation of children's doctor Roshal), the "Give Life" foundation, the "Children's Palliative Care" foundation, the regional public organization of the Tatar National and Cultural Autonomous Region of Moscow, the "Suvorovets" charity foundation of the Kazan Suvorov School, the "Code of Honour" charity foundation.
It is the implementation of complex projects not only in Russia, but also abroad, and the recognition of merit and professional activity that allows Ilgiz Valitov to realize his potential in the charitable and social sphere as well.
It is obvious that the principle of Ilgiz Valitov's work, both in the area of business investment, and that in the area of social investment is the focus on the individual, on his needs and well-being. Dozens of new production facilities, tens of thousands of new jobs, the growth of the country's economic potential – allthis is also a solution to a whole block of social issues of Russia's development.
Large Bank investments gave an impetus to the continued development of enterprises in various industries, and this development continues today. Such investments in social and charitable projects also give significant results. And the lives and quality of life of the country's residents depend on the results.
