There are not so many people in the world who were able to go all the way from a simple assembler of parts at a factory to the post of the head of a very large retailer. One of such outstanding managers of modern Russia is Malis Alexander Adolfovich - a businessman who has managed to become a reformer to some extent and hoping that his grandchildren will remember him as the person who made the Internet accessible to many users. We will talk in detail in the article about the fate of this well-known man.
Birth and childhood
Malis Alexander was born on September 4, 1972 in the city of Moscow. His mother, Nina Ilyinichna, works as a professor at the Department of Taxation at the Academy of Budget and Treasury of the Ministry of the Russian Federation.
From an early age, Alexander was very fond of various electronics and, while still a schoolboy, he regularly earned money at one of the industrial enterprises producing electrical engineering.He was even able to get a category of second-rate collector. However, the young man was well aware that without getting higher education in life, it would be very difficult for him to reach career heights.
Malis Alexander chose the Moscow Aviation Institute as his native university, where he began to comprehend the basics of applied mathematics. But after a while he moves to another educational institution - the Moscow Institute of Commerce, where he gets extensive knowledge in the field of financial accounting and auditing. Thesis defense was held in 1995.
During his studies, Alexander Malis (“Euroset” will appear in his life a little later) worked actively: he regularly shod horses at the local hippodrome. The guy quickly mastered this craft and began to receive decent money at the time. For one savvy horse he earned 20 rubles, while the average salary in the country was about 150 rubles per month.
The beginning of the way
According to some journalists, Alexander Malis, whose biography contains many contradictory facts and not fully verified data, from 1990 to 1995 was a financial analyst and head of a department at an auditing company called Rusconsult.In 1992, an enterprising guy became the founder of a company specializing in providing organizational services.
A joint project
In 1994, Malis Alexander, together with his brother Oleg, an excellent expert in the field of banking consulting, opened his own business based on the creation of a telecommunications commercial structure, named Corbina Telecom.
The company provided consulting services in the field of lending to various private companies and enterprises, and also helped to find and attract investors to business projects. But a little later, the brainchild of Malis reoriented to the resale of services in the telecommunications area. The initial contribution to this venture for the brothers cost three thousand dollars.
In 1996 (according to some information in 1997), the companions bought a telephone exchange for 50 thousand American dollars and built several sections of their own network. From that moment, Corbina Telecom turned out to be a telecom operator.
In 1998, Alexander Adolfovich graduated from the graduate school of the Research Institute of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation.
In the early 2000s, the cash turnover of "Corbina Telecom" amounted to $ 10 million. It was at this moment that the Malisean brothers realized that without attracting serious investors, their company would simply be destroyed and the business would not go further. And because entrepreneurs decided to sell it to the concern from the United States Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT). According to Finance, the transaction was carried out in the amount of $ 9 million. The brothers themselves received positions of hired managers. As for Alexander Adolfovich, he became the vice-president of the company, although he had previously been a commercial director and was responsible for the development of the client base and the latest types of services.
In 2006, Malis Alexander received the post of head of Investtelectrosvyaz. In the same year, Corbin Telecom was acquired by businessmen Mamut Alexander and Vekselberg Victor. The deal was made through the Cyprus firm Inure Enterprises.

Four months later, the controlling stake in Kortek was sold to the Russian telecommunications giant Golden Telecom. And in early 2008, Vimpeltelecom acquired the entire “goden Telecom”.Thus, Malis found himself in the position of Director for the Development of Access to Runet.
In the fall of 2008, Vimpeltelecom bought out 49% of the shares of Euroset from businessman Mamut. Shortly before, the largest seller of cell phones in Russia ran into serious problems with the law: the head of the security service was charged with kidnapping, and the prosecutor's office conducted large-scale searches at the company's headquarters.
In April, the president of Euroset, Alexander Malis, received his post for a three-year term. Many analysts have called such an appointment the best, because the manager has established himself as a specialist in working under the most severe financial constraints. However, he always achieved the results.
In February 2018, MegaFon PJSC became the full owner of all Euroset shares. On this occasion, Malis said that this would allow his company to move on, introducing new services and services in practice, in good faith fulfilling its obligations to its partners.
Malis repeatedly noted in his numerous interviews that, due to his activities in recent years, the cost of talking on a cell phone with American subscribers has decreased twice for Russians.
In 2010, Alexander Malis, whose wife always supports him in difficult moments, began to carry out large-scale earthworks at his manor in the village of Aminadav near Jerusalem. The businessman received all the necessary permits for this. However, the entrepreneur's neighbors did not like his idea to enclose their property with a 12-meter fence, they filed a lawsuit. As a result, they came to a compromise: Malis had to reduce the height of his fence to three meters.
