Today – it is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Polyakov


Today it is the 100th anniversary since the birth of the legendary man in the domestic auto industry - Viktor Polyakov. By occupying the position since 1975 as the "Minister of the automotive industry of the USSR" Mr. Polyakov remained in the country's history as a model of manager - knowledgeable, principled, exacting. That's about him, by being "on duty for the country" in the popular TV channel "Russia",Mr. Zhvanetski once said: "In this country not the boss, but the owner can bring benefit, either the head with the authority of the owner. "And he gave the example only Marshal Zhukov, Academician Kurchatov and ... Minister Polyakov, who built AvtoVAZ and Togliatti. 

From apprentice mechanic (in 1930), by combining his studies in the Road Institute with the work, Viktor Polyakov first rose to a test engineer, and then - to the director of the Moscow plant of small cars (from 1946-1963) and Chairman of the Council of National Economy in Moscow ( 1963-1965). In 1965 he became Deputy Minister of automotive industry of the USSR, and since August of 1966, he was appointed the General Director of Volga car plant under construction in Tolyatti. He worked at VAZ only ten years of the 48-year history of the company. However, workers of AvtoVAZ always compared each subsequent coming director with Mr.Polyakov - and none of this comparison bears. It took many years, but today legends about him continue to walk - how he was modest in everyday life (walking in a simple suit, he did not like to change the situation in the office, when he was already the Minister, he refused privileges), demanding to work (it was impossible to be late for his meeting, even for a moment), he was considerate, wise ("It is necessary to solve problems instead of blaming each other mutually"). The plant was always in the first place for him.

In memory of Mr. Polyakov at the Museum of AvtoVAZ on February 27th, it was opened an exhibition of photographs: the museum has collected them from those that were kept in private collections. Yesterday, on the building of Togliatti Lyceum N76 (the school, over which AvtoVAZ is a patron) it was the grand opening of a memorial plaque of Mr. Polyakov. And today, on March 3rd, in front of the plant management of AvtoVAZ near the bust of the first General Director of the company it will be held a meeting with veterans of the plant. It was a meeting of veterans of AvtoVAZ with the president, Bo Andersson, and the governor of the Samara Region Mr. Merkoushkin. The day will be finished with the themed spectacle in the theater "Wheel" in Togliatti.
