Alexander Gennadyevich Khloponin (Russian: Алекса́ндр Генна́дьевич Хлопо́нин) was born on March 6, 1965 in Colombo, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Khloponin was the governor of Krasnoyarsk Krai in Siberia, Russia.
Khloponin has a finance degree from the Finance Academy (famous Russian university located in Moscow) and was chairman of the board of the Norilsk Nickel company. In 2001, he became the governor of Taymyr Autonomous Okrug in northern Siberia, holding that position until 2002. Khloponin won the election for governor of Krasnoyarsk Krai against Alexander Uss, another man with major business links. The race was relatively close, with Khloponin winning only 48% of the vote even in the runoff. He has been governor of Krasnoyarsk Krai since October 2002.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has approved (19 January 2010) the establishment of the North Caucasian Federal District (from Southern Federal District) and appointed Alexander Khloponin Vice-Premier of the Russian Federation and Plenipotentiary Envoy of the President to the new federal district while relieving him from the governor's office.
