Former CFO and Deputy Chairman, Yukos, USA
Bruce MisamoreBruce Misamore

Bruce Misamore was chief financial officer and deputy chairman of Yukos, Russia’s largest oil company, from 2001 until 2005. While there, he introduced world-class standards of corporate governance, financial transparency, and accounting. However, his reforms were unwound after the company had its domestic assets seized by the Russian government after 2004 and the arrest of its chief executive, Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Misamore resigned in December 2005 and has since been instrumental in a global legal campaign to ensure that Yukos’s thousands of legitimate stakeholders receive compensation from the Russian government. Before joining Yukos, Misamore worked in senior-level finance roles with US oil companies PennzEnergy, PennzOil Co., and Marathon Oil. Misamore taught finance at Bowling Green State University in Ohio in the 1970s and says that the winters there are even colder than they are in Moscow.
