Anyone involved in the steel business now knows who Alex Schneider is. This is a successful Canadian businessman, the owner of a powerful corporation that includes a huge number of enterprises. Everything that Alex Shnaider now has, he received thanks to his outstanding entrepreneurial abilities, good economic education, as well as such personal qualities as determination, honesty, courage, and willingness to take risks.
Alex was born on the territory of the USSR, but lived there only for a short time. At the age of 4, the boy moved with his parents to Israel, where he spent the next 9 years of his life. The next place of residence of the Schneider family was Canada, where they finally settled.
In Canada, Alex’s parents had a small store where the teenager worked during his free time from school. This had a serious impact on his future fate. After all, it was then that Schneider decided that his calling was entrepreneurial activity.
Subsequently, the young man successfully completed his studies at the university and began to take his first steps in business. Unique entrepreneurial opportunities opened up for Schneider with the collapse of the Soviet Union. At that time, language proficiency and family connections in the former USSR allowed the young ambitious businessman to take an active part in the role of intermediary in making grand deals to export Soviet steel abroad.
Already in 1994, Alex became the founder of the largest corporation Midland Group, which immediately began to grow and develop very quickly. Successful activities allowed Schneider to become one of the youngest dollar billionaires. He was included in Forbes lists when he was not yet forty years old. This achievement speaks volumes and characterizes Alex Schneider as a talented, purposeful businessman with amazing instincts and vast experience.
The enormous fortune that Schneider owns has allowed him to indulge in very expensive hobbies, such as collecting luxury cars. In 2005, the businessman went even further and acquired the Formula 1 team for $25 million. A few years later, the billionaire sold the team, receiving an impressive profit from this deal.
The businessman believes that it is the duty of every successful person to help those less fortunate. That is why he pays so much attention to charity. He participates in charitable programs not only in Canada, but throughout the world, generously donating money to various organizations.
