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.

Sergei Ivanov previously worked as a senior vice-president of Sberbank and headed the board of directors of insurance company Sogaz.
