IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: LEONARD BLAVATNIK

Rate this Entry

Blavatnik
Here's an All-American rags to riches story. "Len" Blavatnik emigrated to the US from the former Soviet Union as a refugee in 1978 at 21 years of age with not a dollar to his name. He managed to get in to Harvard Business School and then partnered with a few school friends to create Access Industries, Inc. and started buying stakes in Russian companies when that economy started opening up. He merged one company in to British Petroleum. He's now worth over $7 billion dollars and serves on the board of Warner Music.

    Len came to Macys in New York and within a short period of time restructured the information services division, bringing standards and performance and receiving the respect of his peers. Eventually, he asked me to write a letter of recommendation to Harvard and shortly thereafter he was accepted in Harvards MBA program. A few years later he called and thanked me. What is most rewarding is knowing what he accomplished can still be done.

    It's kind of a long shot from merging companies into Britsih Petroleum to serving on the board of Warner Bros. But it surely is an interesting way. And what it shows once more is that it if you're on the way to making a fortune, it definitely helps to cooperate with oil companies like BP. Those companies still make tons of money and know how to play on a playground that is the world.
