Avdeev Roman received his education from a regular city school. He began to receive good grades only during the last years of his studying.
After finishing school, he entered Moscow Power Engineering Institute. During his second year at the university, he was drafted into the army. He received his diploma of higher education only in 1994.
Roman Avdeev first tried his abilities as an entrepreneur in 1989, after the law on cooperation was established in USSR and trading activity of individuals ceased to be considered a crime. Roman Avdeev founded a cooperative store that produced decoders for televisions.
Then he had the ideas about banking as a separate business area. In 1991, private business finally became a legal reality, and in 1994 Roman Avdeev acquired Credit Bank of Moscow, or, more precisely, he received a documentation package, a small office and 14 employees. The bank existed only officially, but it was not really operating.
A little bit later, Avdeev bought the controlling shares of the sugar factory which was located in the Lipetsk region. In the 2000s, the manufacturing company called ‘Chernozemye’ was founded on that territory. In 2008 it was sold.
In 2008, he began to develop the corporation called ‘Sever-Les’ located in the Arkhangelsk region. It included 18 companies engaged in the timber industry. Subsequently, the corporation with the annual revenue of 65 million USD was sold.
In 2012, Avdeev founded the company called ‘Ingrad’. Its main specialization is the erection of high class residential complexes in Moscow and in the surrounding areas.
In 2015, Roman began to develop ROSSIUM Concern LLC. As a result, it turned into an investment holding including not only banks, but also other institutions involved in financing, commercial property trade, and pharmaceutical products manufacturing.
