Early Life: Childhood, Education
Doronin was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia on November 7, 1962.
He attended Moscow Lomonosov State University, from which he graduated with his bachelor’s degree.
In 1985, when he was 23 years old, Doronin left Russia for Switzerland with less than $250 in his pocket (because Russians were prohibited from leaving the country with more than that amount). Once in Switzerland, he found a job with financier Marc Rich. He was soon mastering all that related to the commodities trading world, particularly metals and oil.
Professional Life: Businesses, Investments
The early 1990s were a fruitful time for a productive, hard-working Russian man with a European pedigree. In 1991 Vladislav Doronin started his own company which he named Capital Group. Within a few years, his establishment began making major viable real estate investments in Moscow. One of his first developments was to build a large office building in the city that catered specifically to western customers that were flooding Moscow. Companies like Phillip Morris and IBM quickly learned that the Capital Group’s structures were the best in Russia for Western-style office work.
Doronin’s company eventually grew to control about 7 million square meters of mostly “A-Class” office, residential, and retail real estate.
In 2014 he became the major owner of the holding company of Aman Resorts, The Aman Group. Aman Resorts owns around 30 luxury resorts in 20 countries. By August the following year Doronin had become the sole owner of Aman. Aman Resorts concentrates on operating highly lavish low-capacity resorts. Aman operates properties in Vietnam, Turkey, Greece, Phuket, Thailand, Turks and Caicos, Cambodia, Bali, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Montenegro, Japan, and more. In April 2015, the company paid $500 million for floors of New York City’s Crown Building on Fifth Avenue. The Aman brand, in recent years, has been expanded to also include Aman Private Jet, with the aim of conveying travelers to and from his hotels. The company also launched two supplements brands, Aman Skincare and Aman SVA.
Not satisfied with his accomplishments so far, Doronin founded the OKO Group in 2015. Through this establishment, Doronin has acquired several high-profile residential and commercial buildings in New York City and Miami. In one instance, the company paid $54 million for a property on Biscayne Bay in November 2016.
