The helm at the Ukrainian subsidiary of Sberbank, Russia’s biggest lender, has been handed to Irina Knyazeva, who has been appointed the subsidiary’s acting chief executive and until now has been deputy chief executive of the Ukrainian bank.
Knyazeva is taking over the reins from Igor Yushko.
The reason for Yushko’s vacating the post of chief executive on January 31 is the expiry of his contract, Sberbank said in a statement.
Knyazeva’s new appointment takes effect on February 1.
