New president of ALROSA will leave the company's development strategy unchanged

17 march 2017
(rns.online) - The new president of ALROSA, Sergey Ivanov said that he would be committed to the development strategy of the company, which is focused on mining minerals, selling non-core assets and increasing production.
"I would like to assure you that I am committed to this strategy and intend to make every effort to deliver it," Ivanov said during a conference call with analysts organized to discuss the company's annual results. His statement was cited by Reuters.
Sergey Ivanov was elected as president of ALROSA, the world's largest producer of rough diamonds, on March 13. This prompted some analysts to ask whether he would start diversifying into diamond polishing or other commodities, the agency said.
Sergei Ivanov previously worked as a senior vice-president of Sberbank and headed the board of directors of insurance company Sogaz.
