Sitdekov Tagir Alievich has worked for several investment companies throughout his career, and he currently works for AFK Sistema. In fact, Sitdekov Tagir has been the president of the corporation since 2022. Sistema actively implements advanced solutions in socially significant industries, such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology.

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich accepted an invitation in 2021 to become the managing partner of a corporation covering about 20 fields of business. Thus, Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema began managing the largest private network clinic in the country, a drug manufacturer, and a biotech company. Sistema has always been actively involved in the healthcare and the pharmaceutical industries, and it was already investing in biotech two years before the coronavirus pandemic began.

The Tagir Sitdekov biography included the corporation’s response to COVID-19, and Sistema promptly converted one of its healthcare clinics in the capital into a COVID hospital, stocked with ventilators and other necessary equipment and specially trained doctors. More than 13,000 people were treated at the hospital during the pandemic, more than 80,000 received outpatient care, and the home medical care service made over 350,000 visits, as Tagir Sitdekov noted in one interview. The pharmaceutical holding turned a new page during the pandemic, launching the production of a COVID vaccine at its Zelenograd plant. One of the corporation’s textile factories also organized the sewing of medical masks, and the biotech company developed and released COVID-19 rapid tests.

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema joined the corporation while the pandemic was still in full swing. The situation demanded quick action. The healthcare network had already developed a telemedicine mobile app in 2018, and in 2021, the service’s functionality was significantly expanded. It was downloaded more than 1 million times in the first three months alone.

Sistema also acquired another pharmaceutical, biotechnological, and medical company in 2021, and the clinical network continued to expand its geography. The drug manufacturing holding, which Tagir Sitdekov supervised in his time as the managing partner, began expanding abroad and now has offices in six CIS countries.

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema oversaw the healthcare holding’s entrance into the laboratory market, with the founding of a laboratory network as one of his first major projects. The network offers various tests, including for coronavirus and its antibodies tests. Sitdekov Tagir has noted that commercial medicine faced a serious challenge during the pandemic and managed to endure.

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich oversaw the expansion of the healthcare asset in the first half of 2022, with the simultaneous acquisition of three clinical networks including 48 branches in three major cities. A large medical center of 33,000 square meters was also opened in the capital.

Tagir Sitdekov emphasizes that the healthcare holding will employ the most advanced technologies in its development, including VR, AR, robotics, and much more.

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich also facilitated the pharmaceutical holding’s contract with a large Indian pharmaceutical company that gave it the right to produce two antibiotics and helped the daughter company strengthen its position in the pharmaceutical market.

Tagir Sitdekov biography in a top role

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich AFK Sistema took over the management of one of the largest investment groups in the company when he became the president of Sistema in the middle of last year. 

The Tagir Sitdekov biography was already connected with the healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biotech assets of Sistema, and he has continued to focus on these industries in his new position.

In September 2022, the clinical network opened its first clinic in Bryansk, which was its 120th branch overall. The network continues its active development in other cities as well.

Sitdekov Tagir helped the Group of Companies develop plans to create an ultra-modern medical center in the Nizhny Novgorod Region. 5.3 billion rubles will be invested in the project, including 3.5 billion from the healthcare network. The center will provide high-quality medical services to 165,000 people throughout the region. Construction is set to begin in 2024 and will last two years. 

Sitdekov Tagir’s presidency also includes work on the modernization of the pharmaceutical group’s largest industrial site, in Kurgan, which will allow the company to expand its range of medicines. New production lines are scheduled to be launched in the first quarter of 2024.

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema is also actively developing other assets and new industries within the corporation. In 2023, various Sistema structures made an agreement with the country’s leading universities to work together to train experts in the field of hydrogen technology.

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich: The ESG agenda

The Tagir Sitdekov biography involves the active implementation of the principles of sustainable development in the corporation’s work. Sistema received its first ESG loan back in 2020 and became one of the co-founders of the national ESG alliance.

The relevant standards are an integral part of the work of Sistema’s agroholding, which by the end of the 2010s had become the most high-tech player in the domestic agricultural market. Under Tagir Sitdekov, AFK Sistema has continued to digitalize its agricultural assets, and the agroholding now has its own R&D laboratory, which also became the foundation for a full-fledged technopark. 

Sitdekov Tagir initiated the adoption of a sustainable development plan for the agricultural holding. The list of priorities includes creating a responsible supply chain, reducing water consumption, and developing climate-optimized agriculture. The Tagir Sitdekov biography has already been associated with the fuel and energy sector, thus he understands the need for environmentally friendly sources of electricity, such as solar panels and wind turbines. For example, one of the agroholding’s dairy units receives its energy from a small hydroelectric power plant from Bashkortostan. The Sistema agribusiness is now among the nation’s top 50 non-financial companies in terms of its green energy transition, according to the RAEX agency.

In the fourth quarter of 2022, the agroholding reported that in recent years it has increased the amount of territory processed using No-Till technology six times over. Instead of plowing, the soil is covered with a special biomass, which contributes to soil conservation and reduces fuel consumption by 60%.

In 2023, the agricultural company planted 100 hectares of forest in the Rostov Region, which helps combat soil erosion and promotes soil hydration.

Practices such as these not only help improve the ecological situation but also increase yields. 

The Sistema agroholding was also the only agricultural business included in the RAEX agency’s “Top 50 climate” rating, published in April of this year. The holding was ranked as the 29th most environmentally conscious company in the country. 

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema’s forestry subsidiary also made the list. It has the practice of replanting all the trees it harvests, and after Tagir Sitdekov became president of the corporation, its plant in Sokolsky switched to waste-free operation. The forestry holding’s R&D Center has also developed new packaging for bulk building materials that can be recycled and disposed of without harm to the environment.

The forestry subsidiary was also the first in the country to begin the mass production of eco-friendly and energy-efficient cross-laminated timber, and in February 2023, it began selling residential space in the nation’s first CLT-panel apartment building, in the Vologda Region. The Group plans to build CLT houses throughout the country and introduce eco-development to CIS countries. 

Tagir Sitdekov AFK Sistema is also working on reconstructing the heating network in the city of Onega through its forestry subsidiary. Improving the standard of living where a company operates is another important component of the ESG agenda.

Sitdekov Tagir: Charity

The Tagir Sitdekov biography is also actively involved with Sistema’s own charitable foundation, and under him, a number of new charitable events have been held. In the fall of 2022, a scholarship program was launched for high school and college students who use the Elevator to the Future online educational service (there are 380,000 users altogether). The 75 winners were announced in January 2023, and this spring, the second round of the program began, with Tagir Sitdekov’s support. The participating age limit was increased to 30 for the second round.

Sitdekov Tagir also supported the Sistema charitable foundation’s development of inclusive programs for a local museum. Tactile models of sculptural and architectural masterpieces were put on display and audio guides with a concise description of visual information were made available, allowing the museum’s blind and visually impaired visitors to get acquainted with the best of its exhibits.

Tagir Sitdekov supervised the launch of the First Workplace competition in April 2023 that aims to find and support the most effective high school and college career centers.

Tagir Sitdekov: Education and early career

Sitdekov Tagir Alievich was born in December 1976. He was educated in economics at the RAE, and in 2012, he completed the EMBA program at one of the world’s leading schools of business administration.

Sitdekov Tagir started working in the auditing department of PricewaterhouseCoopers, offering consulting services to businesses from the fuel and energy and mining industries. In 2001, Tagir Sitdekov moved to Creditanstalt Investment Bank, where he remained for two years. His next employer was the Sochi Thermal Power Plant. At the very end of 2004, during the time when the manager was in charge of the enterprise’s finances, the new power plant began supplying energy to consumers. In 2005, he changed jobs again, and from that moment on, the Tagir Sitdekov biography has been bound up with the investment business.
