Oleg Tinkov is the BoD chairman of Tinkoff Credit Systems and has a long entrepreneurial history in Russia. He established Petrosib, which operated TechnoShock and MusicShock stores, in 1993 and sold it after it had grown significantly. He parlayed these profits into Darya, a semi-finished meal producer, then sold out to start Tinkoff breweries and a chain of 12 restaurants. In 2005 Tinkov sold the brewery business to focus on credit card solutions, forming Tinkoff Credit Systems.
He holds a degree from a mining institute in St Petersburg and attended a marketing course at UC Berkeley.[an error occurred while processing the directive]
