Maria Krajukhina

Partner, Chief Operating Officer

Maria is a Partner at RTP Global and acts as the firm’s Chief Operating Officer, based in the firm’s London office. She oversees all investment and operational teams across the US, Europe and Asia. Since helping launch the fund in the early 2000s, she has set up all of RTP Global’s offices in London, Amsterdam, Paris, Dubai, Bangalore and New York. Maria also hired the team that invests in and supports the firm’s growing portfolio.

Maria started her career in investment banking. It was during this time, while assisting with the sale of his first company to PwC, that she first crossed paths with Leonid, RTP Global’s founder. She later raised capital from Warbug Pincus for the largest system integrator company in Czech Republic, and this eventually led to her appointment as Chief Financial Officer in one of Warburg Pincus’ portfolio companies. Here, she was reunited with Leonid. Maria, then, joined the fund that would become RTP Global at the beginning of 2000.

Beyond her professional pursuits, Maria enjoys a passion for triathlons, competing in Ironman and 70.3 races and for cycling around the globe.
