Bill Browder Biography

Since 2009 when his lawyer, Sergei Magnitsky, died in prison after uncovering a $230 million fraud committed by Russian government officials, Browder has been leading a campaign to expose Russia's endemic corruption and human rights abuses. Before founding Hermitage, Browder was vice president at Salomon Brothers. He holds a BA in Economics from the University of Chicago and an MBA from Stanford Business School.

And the people who are thinking about doing something terrible to me will know that you know. That may not prevent the worst from happening, but it does create a real and profound consequence for Putin and his henchmen.
