Goran Vasić was born in Loznica, in a traditional patriarchal family whose roots, according to the writings of Jovan Cvijić, originate in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His ancestors shared the destiny of most Serbs from that region. They moved from Knin to Prnjavor and Srebrenica, and then reached Loznica before the First Serbian Uprising, where they built the reputation of respectable merchants and caterers.
He spent his childhood in a peaceful time, in a "dusty street", across the road from the Museum (the building of old pharmacy) and Grammar School, which he later attended as a student of the last generation of so-called "Realka".
He took degree in electrical engineering and telecommunications in the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad, the city that suited Goran's sensibilities the best. He decided to start studying because of his personal affinities, as well as because of his grandfather's advise, who told him that he should enroll at the faculty whose diploma was equally valuable in our country and abroad.
While he was student, he played basketball and was a constant member of reciting section in the grammar school. His "first love" - astronomy - has never left him, and he now tries to share that love with his son.
Goran Vasić started his working career in export-import company "Vobex", which was founded by Vojvođanska banka. He was also the CEO of public utility company "Vodovod i kanalizacija" in Novi Sad, and he takes special pride in the fact that capital reconstruction of plumbing and sewerage network in the city center was carried out during his mandate. He participated in forming of the Guarantee Fund of Vojvodina, which he ran for four years, and the Fund won the award of the Council of Europe for the project of credit lines for support to woman's entrepreneurship.
He is now the Chief Executive Officer of "Novi Sad Trade Fair".
He speaks English language fluently.
I believe that, since the world constantly changes, we all have to change accordingly, to keep perfecting ourselves every day and to work on deepening our knowledge and improving our skills.
Goran Vasić is of the opinion that his main characteristics in both life and work are patience and persistence, and he does his best to behave and live in accordance with God's commandments, which contain all maxims. According to him, the most important thing is that you don't do to others what you don't want to be done to you. In his opinion, pride is one of the most dangerous vices.
He takes pride in his family. His son Filip has just finished the first grade at the primary school, while his spouse Mirjana, a veterinarian, deals with protection of fish fund in the Danube and neighboring rivers. He finds the greatest support in his family, and he likes to spend leisure time cooking for his family and dear friends and staying with them outdoors, especially on the Danube.
