From 1999 to 2007 he worked at the legal department of the Ministry of Finance of Yakutia. In 2007-2008, he was the Deputy Minister of Property Relations of Yakutia.

In addition to the social bloc and interaction with state authorities in Yakutia, he also oversaw the issues of ALROSA's personnel policy. The personnel policy issues of the company will now be supervised directly by the President of ALROSA Sergey Ivanov.
Ivan Demyanov worked in the diamond mining industry for almost 50 years - first at the Yakutalmaz Trust, where he started as a driver of Myrninsky motor depot, and then - at ALROSA.
"An entire epoch is connected with Ivan Kirillovich (Demyanov), and on behalf of the entire ALROSA team I thank him for many years of hard work and great contribution to the development of the company. Largely thanks to his efforts, ALROSA retained the personnel potential of the diamond mining industry in the difficult period of the 1990s and is today one of the most socially oriented and socially responsible companies in our country. Sincerely I wish Ivan Kirillovich good health, well-being and long life. We will always be glad to see him at our company ", - said the President of ALROSA Sergey Ivanov.
