I am a proactive leader with managerial and motivational skills, an entrepreneur, investor, author, and founder of ARFEN. Experienced with over 10 years of demonstrated history of leadership and business development.
I love twists of fate in my colorful life, and they always bring success. Recently my EB1A petition as an extraordinary individual has been approved, and my family and I got our LPR status in the United States of America.
I was made in 1987 in the small petrochemical city of Nizhnekamsk, TASSR (Tatar Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic), in a family of honored chemists. In 2005 I graduated from the National Tatar Gymnasium No. 2, where we learned all our subjects in my mother tang - Tatar language, and only after 10 grades at school I started to build up my proficiency in Russian and English languages. During my youth time, I spent my free time in my grandma’s village surrounded by dark forests helping her to manage the countryside lifestyle.
In 2010 I graduated with honors from the Faculty of Economics at the Kazan Federal University in the specialty "Management of the organization,”; and I am on the list of the best students of the University.
In 2014, I received a Ph.D. in Economics with the dissertation topic "The system of indicative management of innovative development of complex industrial enterprises (on the example of the Republic of Tatarstan)."
After the university graduation, I had a tough time, and I had to choose between working for the government or being independent and taking risks with my own business. The right decision had been made, and the business was established in late 2009. I founded Arfen Group, and I started to sell wall guard systems for hospitals and expansion joints for industrial facilities. We have survived several crises and continuously grown and become the #1 company in this field in CIS countries. In 2014, my company became the #1 international partner of the main manufacturer ARFEN in Turkey. At the same time, I became an investor and commercial real estate developer. Сurrently I have engaged in business development in the United States as co-founder of ARFEN Inc., and founder of construction company Vanguard Construct LLC and management company BNB Guest House LLC.
I was awarded a diploma of Russian Business Leaders (2016) by the US Department, a diploma for participation in the competition commission “Builder of the Year” (2018), a diploma for work as a member of the jury “Student of the Year” in the nomination “Best Economist” (2019), a certificate for participation in the implementation of the project “ Factory of Entrepreneurship” (2020), awarded the medal “European Quality” for scientific works (2021). Marked with letters of thanks as part of various Expert Councils of the city of Kazan and the Regional Youth Public Movement of Young Scientists and Specialists of the Republic of Tatarstan, a letter of gratitude from FISU (2013), Universiade Kazan 2013, Fina (2015), UCLG Eurasia (2016), FIFA (2017), UNESCO (TISBI, 2018), WorldSkills (2019), DUM of Russia (2019), APMSB RT (2021).
Sometimes a lot of people speak about hobbies, or even you can find stories about hobbies, and once I had time, my friend and strangers started to ask me, "Aidar, do you have hobbies? Share them, please, with me?". I had never thought about this topic at that moment. I did not know my hobby, but everybody shared that they liked skiing, running, singing, reading, or whatever. But what about me? Even I started to have diving classes, mastered my skills, and started night diving with Nitrogen to tell them that this was my hobby. However, it was not my hobby, it became part of life, and sooner or later, I found my hobby. My hobby is life, I love to live, and I like observing how everything changes and analyzing it. I love each part of life, even while learning something new or doing what I already want and know how to do.
