A bachelor's degree in business administration, plus 5 years in the banking industry right out of college, helps me to effectively relate to the needs of the business community and translate that to development practices.

Being a leader, I tend to excel when able to take the lead on projects and cast vision for where we are going. I am also skilled at pulling together the developers and business people to help everyone.

Vladimir Potanin

Vladimir Potanin | job seekingStudying in an elite school became his stepping stone in making his own job opportunity.

Vladimir Potanin,
42, was born in 1961 into a high-ranking Communist family. He attended the Moscow Institute for International Relations, an elite school that groomed students for the KGB and offices of the Kremlin. He then went to work for the Soviet Department of Trade, where his father had also worked. In 1991, he created Interros, a foreign trade association that traded nonferrous metals, including aluminum, copper and lead. With the capital he accumulated from Interros, he started two banks, the Oneximbank and the MFK, to which many state enterprises transferred their accounts. Later, Potanin became one of the principal authors of the Loans for Shares program, in which the Russian government traded ownership in state industries for loans.

The controversial program was administered through auctions, but only select bidders were invited to attend, usually at the discretion of President Boris Yeltsin's daughter. Potanin was among the invited bidders. During Russia's transition to a market economy, he acquired control of more than 20 formerly state-owned enterprises. Potanin's business empire was considerably dented by Russia's 1998 economic crisis, but he managed to set up numerous companies to shelter his personal assets. He also diverted considerable sums to his accounts outside of Russia and threw a party at the height of the crash for more than 100 of his closest friends in a nightclub at the French ski resort Courchevel.

Vladimir Potanin attended the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO), an elite school that groomed students for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Upon graduating MGIMO, he followed in his father's footsteps and went to work for the Soviet Department of Trade.

Married with three children, he is fluent in English and French.

His hobbies include: traveling, football, alpine skiing, various water sports and chess

Mikhail Prokhorov

Maintaining your good employment record plus your good looks is a great combination in business. More girls plus more employment opportunities.

Mikhail Prokhorov (born May 3, 1965) is a Russian self-made billionaire and oligarch. He made his name in the financial sector and went on to become one of Russia's leading industrialists in the precious metals sector. He is the former chairman of Norilsk Nickel, the world's largest producer of nickel and palladium, and the current chairman of Polyus Gold, Russia's largest gold producer.

In May 2007, Prokohorov launched a $17 billion private investment fund, Onexim Group, focused on the development of nanotechnology, including hydrogen fuel cells, as well as other high-technology projects and non-ferrous and precious metals mining. One of the key areas of development is the production of materials with ultra–tiny structures used in energy generation and medicine.
In June 2007, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov announced the formation of the Government Council for Nanotechnology, to oversee the development of nanotechnology in the country. Prokhorov was one of 15 individuals appointed to the council, which will be chaired by Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov.
Mikhail Prokhorov's net worth is currently estimated at $19.5 billion, making him the 24th richest man in the world according to Forbes magazine's list of the World's Richest People in 2008.

Mikhail Prokhorov was born on May 3, 1965, one of two children in his family. His father was a member of the Soviet sports committee and his mother was a scientist. His parents sent him to a language medium school in Moscow and then to the Moscow Financial Institute. In 1989, he graduated with a first class degree from the International Economic Relations Department of Moscow State Financial Institute. He also has an older sister named Irina.

From 1989 to 1992 he was head of the International Bank for Economic Cooperation’s Management Board. In 1993, during the largely unregulated privatization of former state-controlled industries after the fall of Communism, Prokhorov (together with Vladimir Potanin) engineered the acquisition of Norilsk Nickel by the Onexim Bank, of which he was then chairman of the board.

Kwok Brothers

Kwok Brothers | employmentStarting as brothers at the family can be in employment company, as what the Kwok brothers did. They give lots of employment opportunities in their country.

Raymond Kwok Ping Luen (at the left)(born in 1952 in Hong Kong with family roots in Zhongshan, Guangdong, China) is the vice-chairman and managing director of Sun Hung Kai Properties, the largest property developer in Hong Kong. He is the chairman of SUNeVision Holdings Ltd. and SmarTone Telecommunications Holdings Limited. He is the youngest son of Kwok Tak Seng, the founder of SHK Properties and the younger brother of Walter Kwok, the chairman of SHK Properties, and Thomas Kwok, another vice-chairman of SHK Properties.

He holds a Master of Arts degree in Law from Jesus College, Cambridge, a Master of Business Administration degree from Harvard University, an Honorary Doctorate degree in Business Administration from the Open University of Hong Kong and an Honorary Doctorate degree in Laws from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Dr Raymond Kwok Ping Luen is a noted entrepreneur and leader in Hong Kong's property sector. For many years the Kwok family has taken a leading role in the territory's property development business. In the 1980s the family diversified its business portfolio into transport, infrastructure and logistics, telecommunications and information technology. Dr Kwok, through his vision and knowledge, has since applied advanced technologies to the field of business and management with remarkable success, thus contributing to Hong Kong's development into an international business and IT hub.

Walter Kwok Ping-sheung, (at the center) is born in Hong Kong with family roots in Zhongshan, Guangdong), is the eldest son of Kwok Tak Seng (郭得勝). Together with brothers Thomas and Raymond, they inherited Sun Hung Kai Properties, Hong Kong's largest real estate developer, in 1990 following their father's death.

Walter is the chairman and CEO of that organization, and the brothers share control of the firm. The Kwok brothers are the third wealthiest people in Hong Kong and Greater China Region, just after Li Ka Shing and Lee Shau Kee. Their wealth is estimated to be 15 billion US dollars in Forbes' latest annual list of billionaires.

Kwok fell in love with an ambitious lawyer Ida Tong Kam-hing (唐錦馨), but Kwok's father did not allow Walter to marry her.

His parents introduced him to Lydia Ku, whom he married, but the marriage broke up six months afterwards. Later, he married his present wife, Wendy Lee.

1997 Abduction

In 1997, Walter Kwok was allegedly kidnapped by the notorious gangster "Big Spender" Cheung Chi Keung, and was released seven days later without police intervention. Negotiations fronted by wife Wendy resulted payment of a ransom rumoured to have been in nine figures. Following his arrest in Guangzhou in 1998, Cheung confessed that he had put Kwok in a wooden container blindfolded for four days, and fed him regular meals of roast pork with rice, until the ransom of some HK$600 million was paid. The ransom in 1,000 dollar notes was packed inside 20 large carrier bags and driven in two Mercedes saloon cars to a quiet lane in Central district. After the kidnap, the badly shaken Walter handed over the executive duties of SHKP to his younger brothers while retaining the title of Chairman and Chief Executive.

The younger Kwoks controlled day to day operations of the group, although Walter has been increasingly rehabilitated into the business in recent months. During this time, a former girlfriend, Ida Tong, is said to have become increasingly influential. This influence has led to business decisions by Kwok which departed from its previous conservative model, and without the consensus of his brothers.

Thomas Kwok Ping Kwong SBS, JP (at the right) (born in Hong Kong in 1951 with family roots in Zhongshan, Guangdong, China) is the vice-chairman and managing director of Sun Hung Kai Properties, the largest property developer in Hong Kong. He is the second son of Kwok Tak Seng, the founder of SHK Properties and the younger brother of Walter Kwok, the chairman of SHK Properties.

He holds a Master of Business Administration degree from London Business School, University of London and a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Imperial College, University of London.

Amancio Ortega Gaona | employer job postingIncidentally went to Spain not knowing that it is his Job Bank place. Starting in just a simple employment.

Amancio Ortega Gaona (born March 28, 1936, Spain) is a Galician fashion entrepreneur. Ranked by Forbes as Spain's richest man and the 8th richest man in the World in 2007. He is the founder, with his then-wife Rosalía Mera, and chairman of the Inditex Group. He currently lives with his second wife in a discreet apartment building in the centre of La Coruña (Corunna).

Ortega arrived at La Coruña, Spain, at the age of 14, due to the job of his father, railway worker. Starting as a gofer in various shirt stores in La Coruña, Galicia, in 1963 he founded Confecciones Goa (his initials in reverse), which made bathrobes. In 1975 he opened the first store in what would grow into the enormously popular chain of fashion stores called Zara. He owns 59.29% of the Inditex group (Industrias de Diseño Textil Sociedad Anónima) which includes the brands Zara, Massimo Dutti, Oysho, Zara Home, Kiddy's Class, Tempe, Stradivarius, Pull and Bear/Often and Bershka and has more than 14,000 employees.

Ortega keeps a very low profile and there are practically no photographs of him (except from one photo published at the Inditex website). He refuses to wear a tie, and likes to dress in blue jeans. He is said to take a very active part in the production and design process in the company.

When he made a public appearance in 2000 - as part of the warm-up prior to floating his company on the stock market in 2001 - it made headlines in the Spanish financial press. However, he has never given an interview, and his secrecy has led to the publication of books such as Amancio Ortega: DE CERO A ZARA (From Zero to Zara) (ISBN 84-9734-167-8).

The Prince's activities as an investor came to prominence when he bought a substantial tranche of shares in Citicorp in the 1990s when that firm was in difficulties. With an initial investment of $550 million to bail out Citibank caused by underperforming American real estate loans and Latin American businesses, his holdings in Citigroup now comprise half of his wealth worth US$10 billion.

Al-Walid is heavily involved in charitable activities across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, and is estimated to donate more than $100 million annually to charity. Much of this expenditure is in the field of educational initiatives to bridge gaps between Western and Islamic communities by funding centers of American studies and research in universities in the Middle East and centers of Islamic studies in American universities.

Roman Abramovich

medical jobs | Roman Abramovichmarketing jobs are really good in profit.

Born into a Jewish family, Roman's paternal grandparents were exiled to Siberia from Tauragė, Lithuania by the Soviets after the occupation of Lithuania in 1940. Roman grew up as an orphan. His mother Irina Vasilevna was a musician and his father worked as a supplier at a construction trust in Syktyvkar. His mother, Irina Ostrowski Abramovich, died from bacteremia as a result of a back-alley abortion when Roman was one year old. His father Arkady Abramovich was killed in an incident on a construction site when Roman was three years old. Abramovich grew up in his uncle's family in Ukhta and with his grandmother, Tatyana Semenovna, in Moscow. Before moving to Moscow he and his sister lived in Syktyvkar, the capital city of the Komi Republic.

In 1973, Abramovich went to first grade at Ukhta School No. 2. In 1974, Abramovich and his grandmother moved in with his second uncle Abram Nakhimovich in Moscow. Abramovich studied at School No. 232, which stressed the performing arts. After graduating from school and botching his university studies, he moved to his relatives in Komi. In 1984, Abramovich went to the army (artillery regiment in Kirach in the Vladimirsk region).

Abramovich attended the Industrial Institute in Ukhta before being drafted into the Soviet Army in 1984. After military service in an artillery regiment in Kirach, Vladimirsk region, he studied briefly at the Moscow State Auto Transport Institute before taking a leave of absence from academics to go into business. He later earned a correspondence degree from the Moscow State Law Academy.

The Times has reported that he was a market trader selling black market toys before his association with Boris Berezovsky.

Business career

A 2,000-rouble wedding present from Olga's (Abramovich's first wife) parents (about £1,000) was invested by Abramovich in black-market goods such as perfume, deodorants, tights and toothpaste to sell on in Moscow in or around December 1987. Abramovich soon doubled, then tripled, the investment, his confidence growing with each business success. "I think he enjoyed the thrill of it," says Olga. "When he returned from trips selling the goods, he was flushed with joy. In 1988, as Perestroika opened up opportunities for entrepreneurs in the Soviet Union, he and Olga set up a company making dolls. "It brought success almost immediately," says Olga, "but I don't think Roman ever imagined that he would become as rich as he is now."Abramovich started his commercial activity in the late 1980s when Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev's reforms permitted the opening of small private businesses, known as co-operatives. Mr Abramovich began his business career selling plastic ducks from a Moscow apartment, but within a few years his wealth spread from oil conglomerates to pig farms. In 1992 to 1995 Abramovich founded five companies that conducted resale and acted as intermediaries, eventually specializing in the trading of oil and oil products. In 1992 he was arrested in a case of theft of government property - AVEKS-Komi sent a train containing 55 cisterns of diesel fuel, worth 3.8 million roubles, from the Ukhtinsk Oil Production Factory; Abramovich met the train in Moscow and resent the shipment to the Kaliningrad military base under a fake agreement, but the fuel arrived in Riga. Abramovich co-operated with the investigation, and the case was closed after the oil production factory was compensated by the diesel's buyer, the Latvian-US concern, Chikora International. In 1995 Abramovich and Boris Berezovsky, an associate of President Boris Yeltsin acquired the controlling interest in the large oil company Sibneft. The deal was within the controversial loans-for-shares program and each partner paid $100 million for half of the company, below the stake's stock market value of $150 million at the time. The fast-rising value of the company led many observers, in hindsight, to suggest that the real cost of the company should have been in the billions of dollars.

Lawrence Ellison

Australia job listing | Lawrence EllisonBeing an adapted child is not a hindrance to excel in your jobs career.

Lawrence "Larry" Joseph Ellison (born August 17, 1944) is an American entrepreneur and the co-founder and CEO of Oracle Corporation, a major enterprise software company. He is currently listed on Forbes list of billionaires as the 14th richest person in the world. On Aug. 22, 2008 AP ranked founder Larry Ellison as the top paid chief executive despite a poor representation of stock holder value and performance.

Ellison was born in New York City to Florence Spellman, a 19-year-old unwed Jewish mother. At his mother's request, he was given to his mother's aunt and uncle in Chicago to raise.
Lillian Spellman Ellison and Louis Ellison adopted him when he was nine months old. Ellison did not learn the name of his mother or meet her until he was 48; the identity of his father is unknown.

The home was a two-bedroom apartment in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood, populated mostly with lower middle class Jews. Ellison remembers his adoptive mother as warm and loving, in contrast to his austere, unsupportive, and often distant adoptive father, a Russian Jew from the Crimea who adopted the name Ellison to honor his point of entry into the USA, Ellis Island, as well as to conceal his Jewish ancestry. Louis was a modest government employee who had made a small fortune in Chicago real estate, only to lose it during the Great Depression.

Ellison was a bright but inattentive student. He left the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign at the end of his second year, after not taking his final exams because his adoptive mother had just died. After spending a summer in Northern California where he lived with his friend Chuck Weiss, he attended the University of Chicago for one term, where
he first encountered computer designing. At 20 years of age, he moved to northern California permanently.

During the 1970s, Ellison worked for Ampex Corporation. One of his projects was a database for the CIA, which he named "Oracle".

Ellison was inspired by the paper written by Edgar F. Codd on relational database systems named "A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks." He founded Oracle in 1977, putting up a mere $2000 of his own money, under the name Software Development Laboratories (SDL). In 1979, the company was renamed Relational Software Inc., later renamed Oracle after the flagship product Oracle database. He had heard about the IBM System R database, also based on Codd's theories, and wanted Oracle to be compatible with it, but IBM made this impossible by refusing to share System R's code. The initial release of Oracle was Oracle 2; there was no Oracle 1. The release number was intended to imply that all of the bugs had been worked out of an earlier version.

In 1990, Oracle laid off 10% (about 400 people) of its work force because of a mismatch between cash and revenues. This crisis, which almost resulted in Oracle's bankruptcy, came about because of Oracle's "up-front" marketing strategy, in which sales people urged potential customers to buy the largest possible amount of software all at once. The sales people then booked the value of future license sales in the current quarter, thereby increasing their bonuses. This became a problem when the future sales subsequently failed to materialize. Oracle eventually had to restate its earnings twice, and also to settle out of court class action lawsuits arising from its having overstated its earnings. Ellison would later say that Oracle had made "an incredible business mistake."

Although IBM dominated the mainframe relational database market with its DB2 and SQL/DS database products, it delayed entering the market for a relational database on UNIX and Windows operating systems. This left the door open for Sybase, Oracle, and Informix (and eventually Microsoft) to dominate mid-range and microcomputers.
Around this time, Oracle fell behind Sybase. In 1990-1993, Sybase was the fastest growing database company and the database industry's darling vendor, but soon fell victim to its merger mania. Sybase's 1993 merger with Powersoft resulted in a loss of focus on its core database technology. In 1993, Sybase sold the rights to its database software running under the Windows operating system to Microsoft Corporation, which now markets it under the name "SQL Server."

In 1994, Informix Software overtook Sybase and became Oracle's most important rival. The intense war between Informix CEO Phil White and Ellison was front page Silicon Valley news for three years. Ultimately, Oracle defeated Informix in 1997. In the same year, Ellison was made a director of Apple Computer after Steve Jobs came back to the company. Ellison resigned in 2002, saying that he did not have the time to attend necessary formal board meetings. In November 2005, a book detailing the war between Oracle and Informix was published. "The Real Story of Informix Software and Phil White" provides a detailed chronology of the battle of Informix against Oracle, and how Informix Software's CEO Phil White landed in jail because of his obsession to overtake Ellison.

Once Informix and Sybase were defeated, Oracle enjoyed years of industry dominance until the rise of Microsoft's SQL Server in the late 90s and IBM's acquisition of Informix Software in 2001 to complement their DB2 database. Today Oracle's main competition for new database licenses on UNIX, Linux, and Windows operating systems is with IBM's DB2, the open source database MySQL (bought by Sun in 2008), and with Microsoft SQL Server (which only runs on Windows). IBM's DB2 still dominates the mainframe database market.
In 2005, Oracle paid Ellison a $975,000 salary, a $6,500,000 bonus, and other compensation of $955,100.

Forbes listed Ellison's 2005 net worth as $18.4 billion, making him one of the richest people in America, and the ninth richest man in the world. For a short period in 2000, Ellison was the richest man in the world. In 2006, Forbes ranked Ellison as the richest Californian[6]. In interviews, Ellison notes that his actual wealth — money that he is realistically free to spend — is more like $2 billion, and that if he tried to sell all of his Oracle stock, its price would fall to zero.[citation needed] Ellison also owns large stakes in both and NetSuite.

Bernard Arnault

Employer job posting | Bernard Arnault supporting your Family is your first job for being a son...

Bernard Arnault (born 5 March 1949 in Roubaix) is a French businessman. He is the 14th richest person in the world and France's richest person with an estimated net worth of $26 billion US dollars, according to a Forbes report in March 2007.

In 2007, Arnault was listed among Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World.

Mr Arnault is twice married, and the father of five children. His daughter Delphine Arnault is actively involved in the management of LVMH. His second wife, Hélène Mercier, is a pianist from Quebec. Mr Arnault is a noted art collector. Following the example of business man François Pinault, he created a Louis Vuitton foundation for contemporary art, which should open at the Jardin d'acclimatation in 2010.

Arnault was a witness at future President Nicolas Sarkozy's wedding to Cécilia Ciganer-Albéniz. He was also awarded the French Legion of Honor.
Arnault resides outside of Manhattan in New Rochelle, New York.

As of March 2007, Arnault owns a 47.5% plurality of LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton), along with Christian Dior SA and personnal holding company Groupe Arnault . Arnault is the Chairman and CEO of all three companies.

Mr Arnault's father, Jean Arnault, was an industrialist, and owner of a public works company, Ferret-Savinel.
After graduating from the Maxence Van Der Meersch high school, Bernard Arnault was admitted to the École Polytechnique (X1969) from which he graduated with an engineering degree in 1971. After graduation, Mr Arnault joined his father's company. In 1976, he convinced his father to liquidate the construction division of the company for 40 million francs, and to change the focus of company to real estate. Using the name Férinel, the new company develops a specialty holiday accommodation. In 1979, he succeeded his father as president of the company.

When socialist François Mitterand was elected President of France in 1981, Mr Arnault emigrated to the United States and created Ferinel Inc. Through this vehicle, Mr Arnault prospered, developing codominums in Palm Beach, Florida. Three years later, when the French Socialists switched to a more conservative economic course, Mr Arnault returned to France and became CEO of Financière Agache, a luxury goods company. With the help of Antoine Bernheim, managing partner of the Banque Lazard investment firm, and government subsidies conferred in exchange for a promise not to downsize, Mr Arnault acquired Boussac, a textile company in turmoil. The Arnault family put up just $15 million of their own money, with Lazard supplying the rest of the reported $80 million purchase price. Mr Arnault sold nearly all the company's assets, keeping only the prestigious Christian Dior brand, and Le Bon Marché department store.
In 1987, shortly after the creation of LVMH, Mr Arnault exploited a growing conflict between Alain Chevalier, Moët Hennessy's CEO, and Henry Recamier, president of Louis Vuitton. The new group held property rights to Dior perfumes, which Mr Arnault craved to incorporate into Dior Couture. He created a holding company of which he owned 60% and Guinness, who had a distribution agreement with Moët-Hennessy, owned 40%. Following the October 1987 stock market crash, he capitalized on the lower quoted price and soon owned 43% of LVMH. He then consolidated his position by purging executives from both companies.

He has since then led the company through an ambitious development plan, turning it into the largest luxury group in the world, ahead of Swiss luxury giant Richemont.
More recently, Mr Arnault, through personal holding Groupe Arnault and associates at Colony have had their eye on Carrefour, a supermarket, buying into the company in March 2007.

Arnault also owned the art auction house Phillips de Pury & Company from 1999 to 2003.
