Bulat Utemuratov’s Family Traditions


Known as a successful businessman, politician, statesman and benefactor, Bulat Utemuratov has every reason to be proud of his family life, too. For more than forty years he has been happily married to his wife, who he met while still a student. Now the couple has three children – two sons and a long hoped-for daughter. While 15-year-old Dinara has recently started out as a singer (and, by the way, climbed the tops of European charts in May of this year), the sons of Bulat Utemuratov fulfilled themselves in various fields of business.

Born in 1979, Alidar got an excellent and versatile education, completing a course in Oriental Studies in Beijing University and then studying Economics and Political Science in prestigious European and American higher educational establishments.

As early as in his studentship, Alidar Utemuratov started his commercial activities, becoming a distributor of a global telecommunications company and then launching his own projects in the same field. One of his projects, TNS-Plus, has successfully operated up to this day and was developed to set up two other companies – Green Apple, investing in technological platforms for various fields of business and DAR, an IT-company developing its own solutions.

Besides, from 2002 to 2012 Alidar Utemuratov accumulated a wealth of experience, when working in two large companies – Kazakhtelecom JSC and the Vasilkovsky Mining and Processing Plant. However, now he is focused on developing unique applications for e-commerce, entertainment, online payment, microlending and more.

The younger brother, 35-year-old Anuar, graduated from Hult International Business School (the UK) in 2004 and polished his professional skills, working in JPMorgan Chase, which is one of the largest banks in the world, and at Forte Bank, which is one of major Kazakhstan’s financial institutions. Nowadays, Anuar Utemuratov is a member of Forte Bank’s Board of Directors and he also chairs the Board of Directors of LLP QSR, which represents the world’s famous Burger King chain in the country.

Anuar runs the Burger King network from the opening of the very first restaurant in 2012 in Almaty. Today, the network boasts 36 restaurants across the country, and the company’s short-range plans include bringing their number to fifty. However, Anuar’s focus is on the quality rather than on the quantity, and thanks to his responsible approach, the network develops cooperation with suppliers of certified products, extends the veggies menu and refuses the use of oil for frying meat.
