Vladimir Groisman was born January 20, 1978 in Vinnytsia. His father - Boris Groisman, was born in 1946. Detailed information about Vladimir’s mother is missing. We only know that she was a teacher of Russian language and literature at school.
In 1994 he graduated from the Vinnitsa high school number 35. As stated in his official biography, in high school, at age 14, Groysman started his career by working as a mechanic at the "Schoolboy" cooperative company. This “Schoolboy” cooperative company was established by Vladimir’s father.
After leaving school in August 1994, barely reached the age of 16 (!), a young man took the position of commercial director in a private enterprise named "OKO". Then he began his work as a commercial director in November 1994 at the "Youth" private enterprise. By the way, the market "Youth" - is also the creation of Vladimir’s father. He founded the company in 1994, becoming its CEO. As Groisman said in an interview: "In the nineties, I also began to trade, was engaged in the import”.
In the biography of Vladimir Groisman there is an unpleasant episode, which he strongly denies. The case concerns the "Youth" company - the most mysterious asset of Groisman family. The media published materials that at the end of 2007 in the Bank "Kreditprombank" issued a loan of more than $ 10 million to this firm. The company allegedly refused to pay back the loan. After that, Vinnitsa economic court made a decision on the bankruptcy of the company "Youth" (no longer owned by Groisman). And the problem of loan repayment has fallen on the shoulders of the state.
Today there is a rumor that Vladimir Groisman is a protege of Peter Poroshenko. Yes, Poroshenko had been undoubtedly contributed to the development of the political career of a young businessman.
