By Andrei Skvarsky.
Denis Soloviev has resigned as chief operating officer of the corporate and investment division of Alfa Bank, one of Russia’s largest privately owned lenders.
In explaining his stepdown, Soloviev, who has not yet found a job, told EmergingMarkets.me there had been several replacements of the division’s top management since he joined the Moscow-based bank in 2008, and that he had got tired of adjusting to new chiefs.
He said his departure had been amicable.
Soloviev was involved in carrying through the merger of the Micex and RTS bourses that ended up in December 2011 in the emergence of today’s Moscow Exchange, Eastern Europe’s biggest exchange group.
He was chief executive of the National Depository Centre from 2003 to 2008, and his previous record includes jobs with Societe Generale’s Russian subsidiary Rosbank, ING and now-defunct Russian bank Unexim.
