Victor Pinchuk is one of Ukraine’s most successful businessmen, whose role in civic, international affairs and philanthropic organizations has made him a leader in Ukraine’s growing interaction with Europe and the world.
Born in Kiev in 1960, he graduated with honors from the Dnipropetrovs’k Metallurgical Institute in 1983 and earned a PhD degree in 1987 before starting his career as a research engineer in pipe production.
In 1990, he founded Interpipe Company on the basis of his patented innovations in pipe design, engineering and production, which were successfully adopted by leading metallurgical factories in the former USSR. In 2006, he founded EastOne Ltd., an international investment advisory company whose portfolio comprises more than 20 businesses and large-scale projects, including Interpipe and media assets in Ukraine and internationally.
