Boris Lozhkin is a Ukrainian entrepreneur, philanthropist and author.
He founded a small media company in 1994, eventually growing it into one of the largest multimedia businesses in Eastern Europe. UMH Group’s portfolio included internet, radio, and print. The company, which had been valued at around $400 million, was sold in 2013.
After the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity, Boris decided to serve his country and was appointed Head of the Presidential Administration. During his two-year mandate, working closely with the President and the Government, Ukraine implemented more reforms than in the 20 years since independence.
In 2016, Boris decided to return to business, and expand his philanthropic efforts. In 2018, he was elected President of the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine, and appointed Vice-President of the World Jewish Congress.
