Anatoly Vanetik was born and raised in the Soviet Union, moved to the United States in 1978, and for decades he has created and invested in international business ventures. Primarily working within the oil and gas industries, Anatoly worked on the legality and licensing that would eventually support global deals in mining/exploration of natural resources in countries like Kazakhstan and others in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States). He also previously founded two companies: proprietary lubricant manufacturing company Poladyne Corporation and engineering firm Componex Corporation.
Anatoly, who also goes by Tony, has had an entrepreneurial mind for as long as he can remember. He also founded Vanetik and Associates, the venture and consulting firm that he runs to this day. Based in California, the firm focuses on financing for the resource sector, including oil, gas, energy, chemicals and lubrication products.
Outside of work and his entrepreneurial past, Anatoly Vanetik has passions for both art and philanthropy. Whenever he can, Tony enjoys reading about the history of art broken down into eras and periods, gaining a deeper understanding of the cultural appreciation that humans have for works of art.
Tony also has a strong passion for animals, dedicating his time to helping animals find homes and ensuring that dogs in the area are safe, happy and healthy.
