He was the former economic advisor to the Russian government.[3] He is a younger son of Nikolai Shamalov a co-owner of Rossiya Bank, Kirill is a vice-president of Sibur holding.[4][5][6]


Shamalov was educated at Saint Petersburg State University, where he obtained a degree in jurisprudence.[7]


Shamalov became an industry leader in 2012 when the owners of Sibur promoted him from Vice President of Business Administration to Deputy CEO. He was given a 4.3% stake in the company. With the help of a loan from Gazprombank, Shamalov purchased an additional 17% of Sibur from Gennady Timchenko, owner of Sibur, for roughly $2.2 billion.

In April of 2017, Bloomberg reported that Shamalov sold his shares of Sibur that he purchased from Timchenko to Leonid Mikhelson, the other owner of Sibur.[8]
