Putilov, Aleksei Ivanovich
Born June 24 (July 5), 1866; died 1926 or later. Russian industrialist and financier.
After graduating from the law faculty at the University of St. Petersburg in 1889, Putilov served first in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and, from 1890, in the Ministry of Finance. In 1905 he was appointed deputy finance minister and head of the Bank of the Nobility and the Peasants’ Bank. He retired from government service in 1906.
In 1905, Putilov was elected to the board of the Russo-Chi-nese Bank, and in 1910 he became chairman of the board of the Russo-Asiatic Bank. He was either chairman or a member of the board of about 50 joint-stock enterprises affiliated with these banks, some of them through “personal unions.” At the end of 1916, Putilov, I. I. Stakheev, and P. P. Batolin became the co-owners of a large concern. After the October Revolution of 1917, Putilov emigrated to France; in Paris, he headed a division of the Russo-Asiatic Bank. Putilov was an enemy of the Soviet regime.
