Dmitry Doev: Biography

Dmitry Doev is 56. He was born in Leningrad but spent his early years in the small town of Toropets, where his mother grew up.

When he was three years old, his parents decided to return to the northern capital, settling in the Nevsky District.

The head of the family, Vitaliy Semenovich, was part of the intellectual elite. He had a degree in technical sciences and taught at the St. Petersburg State Transport University (then known as the Leningrad Institute of Railway Engineers).

The younger Doev had a mathematical mind, and he would travel several stops to take specialized classes. He excelled in the exact sciences, with a particular interest in physics. The humanities were less interesting for him.

After class, he often walked along the Neva embankments and in the courtyards of St. Petersburg. He would return home for dinner and then sit down to do his homework, he recalls.

During summer vacation, he often went to Toropets – he enjoyed spending time in the quiet town, away from the big city.

Technical education

When choosing a concentration at the Kalinin Leningrad Polytechnic Institute, he decided on the field of dynamics and strength of machines. He defended his thesis in 1989.

A few years later, he returned to his alma mater, this time as a teacher, leading laboratory and practical classes. However, after three years, his interest in teaching faded. In one interview, he mentioned that he couldn’t bring himself to be strict with his students.

From engineer to effective manager

After college, he started working at the Scientific Research Institute of Precision Instruments, which for decades has been developing unique onboard and ground radio-electronic equipment, information services, and software complexes that meet the high requirements of the space industry.

The Dmitry Doev biography was closely connected with natural and technical science research and development from that moment on. He worked at the Institute as an engineer in the combustion physics and explosion laboratory.

In the early 1990s, he tried his hand at entrepreneurship, with a broad range of interests. Together with his partners, he collaborated with companies in the industrial sector and organized the supply of complex technological equipment.

For over ten years, he was part of the management teams of several major gas and construction companies in St. Petersburg.

He headed Centrenergogaz, one of the subsidiaries of the global energy company Gazprom, helping to optimize business processes and form a centralized mechanism for repairs and technical maintenance of various gas supply system facilities. Also with his assistance, repair assets were consolidated, and the network significantly expanded with new branches.

In the second half of the 2000s, he took over a holding company that specialized in the repair and maintenance of gas extraction, processing, underground storage, and transportation facilities (main gas pipelines). Under his leadership, the company’s team, consisting of over 20,000 employees, carried out complex underwater and underground repairs. The company also took on various investment projects. By handling strategically important tasks related to import substitution, it developed the production of disposable parts as well as parts for predictable replacement used in the repair of gas turbine engines (GTE).

Dmitry Doev left the corporation in 2019 and, consequently, the gas industry. Experts consider him to have been a true reformer in this field. He then began to focus on gaining managerial experience in companies from other fields.

The Dmitry Doev biography entered a new stage in the autumn of 2021. He now works for the diversified holding company VIS. His joining the team marked a new milestone in the development of this business structure.
