In 1978, he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. From 1978 to 1989 he worked at the Institute of World Economy and International Relations. In 1989–1991 he was a director of the Soviet owned Donau Bank AG in Vienna and a managing director of bank's subsidiary company Inter Trade Consult GmbH. There are speculations that he had an undercover KGB job because he worked at Donau Bank at the same time as Andrei Akimov, another KGB officer and now Gazprombank's chief.

Between 2008 and 2014, Alexander Medvedev served as president of the Kontinental Hockey League. He is also the president of SKA Saint Petersburg hockey club and Russia's representative to the International Ice Hockey Federation Council.

In December 2008, The New York Times reported that at one point Medvedev predicted Gazprom's market value would reach $1 trillion by 2014. He was also reported to have, in light of the subsequent collapse in the market value (down some 76% to $85 billion; from 3rd in the world to 35th), attributed the fall in value to the condition of the Moscow stock market (see Russian Trading System and Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange) and to the global financial crisis.

In 2009, Medvedev stated an interest in acquiring one of three unspecified NHL franchises. In May, he claimed that his representatives spoke with NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly, who refused to accept Russian ownership in the league. Daly denied ever being in contact with Medvedev and asserted that the NHL does not discriminate on the basis of nationality among its prospective team owners.

Medvedev has played key roles in Gazprom's opaque intermediaries such as RosUkrEnergo, Centrex Group, Gazprom Germania, and YugoRosGaz.
