Vladimir holds a Degree in Engineering and Calculating Machines from the Technical University of Moldova. He believes that education and IT are the keys to Moldova’s prosperous future: “We, as people, are not only hospitable and welcoming; we are also gifted with enormous intellectual potential. Our roots go back to one of the most ancient civilizations of antiquity - Cucuteni–Trypillia. The qualities and abilities passed down from generation to generation clearly indicate that we have a significant human capital. It must be developed and used by all means”.
Vladimir co-founded the second biggest mobile operator in Moldova – Moldcell JSC. During his tenure as Chairman of the Board, Moldcell grew steadily and reached 50% of the national market.
Vladimir’s construction company built the Center of Business and Finance – the first A-Class office building in Chisinau and Ambassador Luxury Residence setting the highest standards for the whole industry.
At the end of the 1990s, Vladimir's company, in partnership with the Moldovan Government and Hewlett-Packard, implemented the first of its kind, national-scale educational project, providing a fully equipped computer classroom in every Moldovan school.
