MegaFon CEO Tavrin might leave, be replaced by former CEO Soldatenkov


MOSCOW. April 22 (Interfax) - The CEO of MegaFon, Ivan Tavrin might leave the company, which is one of Russia's top three mobile service providers, business daily Vedomosti reported on Friday, citing sources acquainted with the executive.

Tavrin plans to go to work for USM Holdings, the company of billionaire Alisher Usmanov and his business partners, and will develop the group's media business, the paper said.

Tavrin will be replaced at MegaFon by Sergei Soldatenkov, who was CEO of the operator from 2003 to 2012, the sources said.

Tavrin's departure might be announced before the end of April.

A spokesman for MegaFon declined to comment to Interfax on the report of Tavrin's impending departure and replacement. He said decisions on the dismissal and appointment of the CEO, according to corporate procedures, are made by the board of directors and approved by a general meeting of shareholders. The next meeting of MegaFon's board is scheduled for April 27, but its agenda does not include the replacement of the CEO.

Tavrin told reporters in March that he was not planning to leave the company. His contract was extended to 2018 last year.
