Victor Zarougian was born in Cairo, Egypt and immigrated to the US in 1962. After attaining his BA at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, he pursued a career in urban real estate management and development. He has a strong interest in geography and developmental economics which he has put to excellent use in his philanthropic efforts, particularly in Armenia.

Victor chose to work with the Tufenkian Foundation because of its major focus on Artsakh. He believes Artsakh is central to Armenia’s long-term security and economic sustainability. Victor looks forward to working on many projects with the Foundation which will help transform Artsakh into a stronger Republic.
