Yury Okoemov, one of Alrosa’s deputy CEOs and head of its diamond-cutting division, is leaving the Russian miner, the company said Tuesday.
Okoemov has been with the Alrosa since 1993. After his departure, employees of the cutting business will report directly to Sergey Ivanov, Alrosa’s CEO.
Meanwhile, Alexander Matveev, a 10-year veteran and the head of Alrosa’s legal department, is also leaving the company. All workers who previously reported to him will be supervised by Konstantin Mashinsky, another deputy CEO of Alrosa.
Additionally, Alexander Terentiev, adviser to the CEO and head of the miner’s office in Yakutsk, left the company this month to become first deputy head of the Committee for Precious Metals and Precious Stones of Yakutia.
“For many years of work in the company, Yury Okoemov, Alexander Matveev and Alexander Terentiev have shown themselves to be true professionals who contributed a lot to the company’s leading position in the global market, helped to strengthen its reputation and [to] protect [its] interests in the legal field,” Ivanov said.
