Ioan Niculae

Ioan Niculae was born on July 19, 1954 in Romania. Founder of Interagro, Romania's leading agricultural and fertilizer conglomerate, Ioan Niculae benefited from the conflict in Ukraine by picking up chemical contracts when Ukrainian suppliers could not deliver. But he's still facing charges brought by state prosecutors alleging two Romanian politicians gave Interago favorable discounts on gas transfers from 2006 to 2010. He got his start at a state-owned agricultural company, then branched out on his own. An avid hunter, he made headlines in 2014 when he flew to South Africa to hunt elephant, lion, wildebeest, and buffalo in order to stuff and return then to Romania. He also owns soccer team Astra Giurgiu.
