Mr. Vasilyev's career as both a businessman and artist is marked by his ability to continually break new grounds in the development of the growing Russian market.
In the world of business, Mr. Vasilyev has been the initiator and leader of many large investment projects. Among his accomplishments is the launch of Russia's first futures market on the Moscow commodity exchange (1992-1993), the creation of the "Beeline" mobile telephone network (1994-1996), and the organization of Russia's first production of radiotelephones under the "Goodwin" brand name (1997-1999).
In the world of the arts, Georgy Vasilyev produced the musical "Nord-Ost", Russia's first musical produced to Broadway standards.
