A New Member has Entered the Ranking of 200 Richest Businessmen in Russia
March 5, 2020 11:18


The founder of Komus has been included into the list of the richest Forbes businessmen.

A new member has entered the ranking of 200 richest businessmen in Russia. For the first time, Forbes estimated the fortune of the founder of the Komus Group Sergey Bobrikov at $ 800 million.

This amount is enough for a businessman to get into the May ranking of 200 richest businessmen in Russia. Being a native of a Don farmstead, Bobrikov graduated from the Riga Flight Technical College in 1981, and was sent to work as a radio engineer at Volgograd Airport. Three years later he entered the Faculty of Law of the Moscow State University. After graduating from the Moscow State University in 1989, he got a job as a lawyer in the student youth centre that worked under the Communist Youth League City Committee. When he worked there, he began to develop the cooperative movement together with his three friends. And in 1991, he discovered a golden mine - the supply of office forms: enterprises across the country suffered from shortage of those.

When, in 1992, disagreements between friends arose, Bobrikov bought out their shares in Komus. He later switched from the retail trade in office supplies to working for corporate business.

Today, according to Forbes sources, online sales may account for up to 50% of the company’s turnover. Three key areas are retail (the company has 105 stores), wholesale, as well as corporate customer service.

Bobrikov has his own Youtube channel where he occasionally posts short videos about his trips abroad, including cycling in Europe. In addition to cycling, the multimillionaire is fond of volleyball and holds beach volleyball festivals in different cities every year. The group also finances the Miss Office international beauty contests managed by the wife of the Head of Komus, Svetlana Bobrikova.
