Doev Dmitry Vitalievich is a prominent business leader in Russia. He started as an entrepreneur, holding managerial positions in various organizations. Now he leads a holding company that implements critical projects for the regions through public-private partnerships (PPP).

Dmitry Doev: Early Years and Schooling

Dmitry Doev

Dmitry Doev was born in 1966 in the city of Leningrad. Then his family moved to the Kalinin region (now named the Tver’ region) and settled in the small town of Toropets. The manager always remembers this place with love. This ancient town has preserved earthen fortifications and many historical buildings. Doev Dmitry Vitalievich spent his early childhood among these architectural monuments. The history of his mother’s family is closely connected with this city. The future top manager often visited Toropets during school holidays after his family moved back to Leningrad.

Doev Dmitry fondly remembers Leningrad, where he and his parents moved when he was three. The family settled in a residential area that displays many plaques commemorating events surrounding the 1917 revolution. According to his retelling, Dmitry Doev liked to take walks among these and other residential buildings after school. As a child, he enjoyed reading and watching movies, especially of the science fiction genre. Like many teenagers of that time, Doev Dmitry Vitalievich dreamed of becoming an astronaut.

Doev Dmitry: Education and Teaching

From his early days, Doev Dmitry Vitalievich showed a penchant for exact sciences like his father, a teacher at the city technical university. Therefore, a school that specialized in mathematics was chosen for his education. Dmitry Doev grew up as quite an independent child: he traveled to an educational institution unusually far from his home by public transport, unaccompanied by his parents. As the top manager recalls, the school workload on students was tremendous, but his studies energized him.

According to Dmitry Doev, his father’s career was firmly connected with applied sciences, so Dmitry followed in his footsteps. After completing his tenth year in school, the future manager chose to go into engineering and entered Leningrad Polytechnic University.

After earning his diploma, Dmitry Doev was invited to one of the country’s scientific institutes, but he only worked there briefly. He later actually returned to the Institute to teach. Dmitry Doev conducted practical classes and helped students to carry out laboratory research. After teaching for three years, he decided to change his profession.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich: First Steps in the Business World

In the first ten years after the collapse of the USSR, Doev Dmitry chose to go into business. The range of his business interests was quite broad. He tried his hand at the investment business and led a construction organization. While with a company that supplied industrial equipment, Dmitry Doev could apply his knowledge as a businessman and engineer. The Dmitry Doev biography, therefore, shows him to be a versatile entrepreneur well-versed in engineering. This set of abilities gradually became known in professional circles.

Dmitry Vitalyevich Doev’s growing business connections and reputation as a specialist set the stage for him to receive an invitation to engage in a radical restructuring of one of the subsidiaries of a large gas production company. His main task was to create a unified system for repairing and maintaining gas infrastructure facilities.

Dmitry Doev was able to recruit qualified personnel quickly, modernize the algorithms of the enterprise, and reduce production losses and costs. The enterprise also opened new branches in many locations across the Russian Federation. In 2008, Mr. Doev was known as an efficient manager who was very adept at his work.

Dmitry Doev: An Agile Innovator

Doev Dmitry Vitalyevich optimized the repair company, united all service structures under one management center, and brought the staff to a new professional level. For example, the holding specialists began maintaining and developing underground gas storage tanks.

The Dmitry Doev biography notes that he set up maintenance and repair services for all gas company facilities, from gas well equipment and pipeline transportation systems to processing facilities. According to Mr. Doev, forming a unified service structure became his main achievement in this position. Thanks to implementing the latest diagnostic methods and timely repair of all elements, Dmitry Doev’s organization could supply energy from producer to consumer without interruption – no small feat as such reliability had not been the case in Russia for some time.

One of the most important tasks given to the organization was also the import substitution of critical parts and equipment needed for the gas supply system. Engineering knowledge primarily shapes Dmitry Doev’s biography. Here, he organized the domestic production of spare parts, and his enterprise began to produce its own turboshaft engines for gas compressor units.

After 2019, the top manager left Gazprom, and for the next three years, he held positions in management for several companies related to the real sector of the economy.

Doev Dmitry: A New Stage in His Career

By 2021, Dmitry Doev’s biography included many successful managerial outcomes; for this, his name was included in General Director’s ratings of the best leaders in Russia. General Director is a well-known professional magazine for business leaders.

At the same time, he accepted an invitation to a new position as head of the infrastructure-holding VIS Group, which was in a state of restructuring and rapid entry into new markets. This company also took steps towards sustainable business development, receiving high levels of credit confidence from various rating agencies. According to the VIS Group Board of Directors, such changes required excellent managerial skills, which Dmitry Doev possessed. For Dmitry Doev and VIS Group, one of his tasks was identifying factors that could harm employees’ health. In the long term, the new leader was expected to contribute to the company’s development and increase its investment opportunities.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich implemented several significant initiatives for the Group in a short time. The package of concluded contracts of the holding includes projects for decades to come.

Dmitry Doev: VIS Group and Bridge Building

The Dmitry Doev biography is partially associated with construction. From his first days as the leader of this extensive infrastructure holding, he started working on transport construction projects.

With a population of one-and-a-half million, Novosibirsk is the largest city in Asian Russia. It is nearly bisected by the Ob’, whose width within city limits reaches 850 meters, historically causing significant difficulties in the city’s development and the regional transport infrastructure.

But now, under Dmitry Doev, VIS Group is building a new bridge across the River Ob’ in the capital of the Siberian Federal District. It is named the Central Bridge. At the heart of its design is a support pylon in the form of the letter “H,” over a hundred meters high.

Dmitry Doev says that the new bridge going up in Novosibirsk is one of Russia’s largest of its kind. It is being built by the VIS Group and its subsidiary CKK (Siberian Concession Company). The plan will link three highways and create a direct passage to the largest airport beyond the Urals. More than sixty thousand cars a day will be able to pass over the six lanes of the new bridge without delay. The highway will significantly alleviate excess traffic in the city center.

Once in operation, the Central Bridge will make it possible to overhaul other existing bridges in the city.

Dmitry Doev and Roadbuilding Projects in the Moscow Region

The construction of roads and bridges is essential for the Russian Federation since a good transport network allows peripheral local economies around the country to experience tremendous growth. For the Dmitry Doev-led VIS Group, this is a sure bet. The VIS Group has long made the public-private partnership (PPP) format a key to its operations. An essential component of this cooperation is the construction of road infrastructure.

Doev Dmitry is sure that one of his projects, the highway from Vinogradovo to Tarasovka, can be included in several critical projects in the Moscow region. The 16-kilometer route, which bypasses Mytishchi, will connect the Dmitrovskoye and Yaroslavskoye highways, allowing one to get from Korolev to Sheremetyevo Airport in 10-15 minutes. Mr. Doev believes a restricted access four-lane highway with a maximum speed of 120 km/h will help reduce the traffic flow along the northern section of the Moscow Ring Road by 20%.

Dmitry Doev helped VIS Group attract regional enterprises to fund highway construction. Nearby regional cities are also engaged in the supply of building materials, concrete, metal and reinforced concrete structures.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich: High-Speed Roads in the Far East

Dmitry Doev and VIS Group commissioned the first Far Eastern expressway last year, which resulted from cooperation between a private investor and the state. The project cost amounted to tens of billions of rubles, of which the VIS Group invested 21 percent. The thirty-kilometer highway near Khabarovsk connects with the central streets and the airport and links up with several federal routes. According to preliminary calculations by Dmitry Doev, this VIS Group project will reduce the traffic passing through the city center, improving the air quality in the regional capital. The Khabarovsk Highway is a toll road with a permitted speed of 120 kilometers per hour. According to experts, by 2025, the daily capacity of the bypass will reach 25,000 cars. In the future, the route is expected to extend to Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island, which borders China.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich believes that this route will help develop the economy of both the capital of the Khabarovsk Territory and the nearby settlements. Transport infrastructure will give impetus to new areas of small and medium-sized businesses.

According to Dmitry Doev, VIS Group utilized 1,500 specialists in various fields to facilitate the construction of this highway. For the first time in this region, they applied a technology that significantly extended the life of the asphalt used.

Dmitry Doev: VIS Group and a Unique Arctic project

Road construction is far from the only specialization of the holding managed by Dmitry Doev. VIS Group is one of the few construction companies that have developed complex facilities in the Far North. These projects include the State Philharmonic and the Arctic Center for Epic Literature and the Arts. So far, buildings of such complex configuration and scale have never been built on soils with permafrost: the Center’s height will be almost 40 meters, and the total area will be over 30 thousand square meters.

By 2021, Dmitry Doev’s biography was filled with successful implementations of complex projects. Such a life story must also note that construction in the Russian Far North is arduous. Nevertheless, construction of the Center began in the summer of 2021, and by the end of 2022, the building was almost a third ready. The project, developed by an organization led by Doev Dmitry, promises that the Arctic Center will be fully prepared by the end of 2024. The area around it will become a public space with walking and recreational areas.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich: Construction of Educational Institutions

The Dmitry Doev biography shows that he has led VIS Group since 2021. This Group is also engaged in other social projects across Russia. In 2015, VIS Group won the open tender from the Republic of Sakha to construct a whole complex of educational and cultural facilities for children. By order of Yakutia, it was necessary to build twelve buildings at once – an accomplishment Dmitry Doev believes is unprecedented for the region. The Dmitry Doev-led VIS Group carried out the entire range of work – from design to equipment. It commissioned five kindergartens, three schools, a library, an art school, a children’s cultural center, and an international Arctic school. All this was done within four years.

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich notes that thanks to the joint efforts of the regional authorities and a commercial investor in Yakutsk, the student capacity rose by three thousand seats in preschool institutions and regular grade schools in a relatively short time. In addition, these new educational and leisure facilities make modern education standards achievable in this region. All institutions built by the holding are equipped with the latest technology, says Doev Dmitry. For example, schools have multimedia classes with interactive whiteboards, language laboratories, and modern libraries. The national school has also completed a room for a folklore theater studio.

Dmitry Doev and VIS Group: Medical Infrastructure of the Far North

In the northern region of Russia, the VIS Group holding is also constructing medical institutions. For example, Doev Dmitry Vitalievich is involved in developing outpatient care centers for the population of Yakutia. In 2019, the company committed to building a large polyclinic that will receive up to 600 patients per shift. Two blocks of the institution will be equipped with the latest high-precision equipment. In the seven years after its commissioning, it will also be serviced by the VIS Group. The VIS Group plans to supply several hundred units of medical equipment – such as magnetic resonance tomography, ultrasound, and X-ray machines. Instead of the usual paper medical records, electronic ones will be used, automatically available to all attending physicians. This will significantly reduce the number of visits to the registry for patients.

The Dmitry Doev biography includes extensive experience in the development of public services. Mr. Doev believes such projects can be a prototype for modernizing the Russian healthcare system. In addition to the polyclinic in Yakutsk, the Group will build six more medical facilities in different regions of the country.

Dmitry Doev: VIS Group and the Far East Ecology

The state also cooperates with private investors in the implementation of national projects. For example, to modernize the waste management system in the Khabarovsk Territory, in 2020, local authorities entered into an agreement with the holding company currently headed by Dmitry Doev. VIS Group, using PPP, is implementing a waste management project, an “eco-technopark.” This high-tech enterprise will sort out half of the garbage collected in the region – more than two hundred thousand tons of waste annually. This complex will become one of the functional blocks of the program, according to which the Khabarovsk Territory will sort and process all of its municipal solid waste by the year 2030.

Dmitry Doev and VIS Group pledged not only to build a waste processing complex; the agreement with the Khabarovsk Territory provides that the enterprise will operate a specialized environmental division of the holding for twenty-five years.

Dmitry Doev: VIS Group Project to Clean the River Volga

Doev Dmitry Vitalievich also contributed to the Group’s victory in the tender for the reconstruction of treatment facilities in one of the districts of the Moscow region. The project is part of a federal program to clean up the longest river in Europe, the Volga. Any Dmitry Doev biography must note his work in constructing various infrastructure facilities. Here, Mr. Doev will manage the holding’s integrated work to create new facilities for mechanical and biological treatment and water disinfection using modern technologies and equipment.

VIS Group promises that the water treatment complex will process up to 27,000 cubic meters daily. These projects are to be part of several facilities designed to reduce sewage pollution in the Volga to one-third of its present level.

Dmitry Doev: Values and Family Life

Doev Dmitry has a wife and two children. He likes spending his free time with his family. Colleagues who have worked with Doev Dmitry Vitalyevich speak of him as a person who is true to his principles, highly responsible, possessing organizational skills and foresight. The manager himself considers the desire for success to be his characteristic feature. Love for the Motherland is manifest, first of all, in the desire to improve one’s compatriots’ lives.

Dmitry Doev’s biography is connected with business, often requiring his travel to many Russian cities. He considers Kazan one of the nation’s most original and beautiful cities.

Dmitry Doev: Leisure and Hobbies

Doev Dmitry became fond of reading from an early age. In his youth, he collected waste paper to buy his favorite works. With the money he received, he bought detective stories and fantasy novels.

Doev Dmitry now prefers to read electronic books, although he also has a traditional home library. He is interested in military subjects and studies tactical battles of different eras. Mr. Doev holds that the organization of a business structure has many analogs with military command and control. For Dmitry Doev, the biography of any military figure is similar to a modern manager’s life: both must solve organizational issues and ensure success.

Doev Dmitry also keeps current, reading much modern professional literature.

The Dmitry Doev biography shows that his lifestyle is associated with constant movement, preferring active recreation. He likes to spend his leisure time riding motorcycles or skiing.
