Telman Mardanovich Ismailov (Azerbaijani: Telman Mərdan oğlu İsmayılov, Russian: Те́льман Марда́нович Исмаи́лов; born 26 October 1956) is an Azerbaijani-born businessman and entrepreneur of Mountain Jew origin. Since Azerbaijan does not allow dual citizenship, he holds Russian-Turkish citizenship. He is the chairman of the Russian AST Group of companies, which is active in many countries. Until 2009, Ismailov owned the Europe's then-largest marketplace, Cherkizovsky Market, located in Moscow, Russia.

In 1989, he registered the brand "AST" (initials of his two sons (Alekper, Sarkhan) and himself). After lavish opening of the hotel in Antalya, Russia's prime minister Vladimir Putin is said to have been disappointed that Ismailov invested so much abroad and flaunted his riches while Russia was being hit by a credit crunch.
