So what is known today is that the candidacy of the new director of AVTOVAZ has not yet been approved, the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov said yesterday. But work is underway in that direction.
Former Deputy Minister Alexander Morozov, who oversaw the automotive industry in the Ministry of Industry and Trade for 7 years, was not appointed to this post. Although his candidacy has been considered, he will work at one of the industrial companies. Which will be specified later.
This was officially stated by the head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.
The second likely candidate for the post of head of AVTOVAZ is the Deputy Governor of St. Petersburg, ex-Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Maxim Sokolov. For this candidacy, the head of the State Duma Commission on Information Policy, Information Technology and Communications “wanted” a deputy from the Samara region, Alexander Khinshtein. What he wrote about in his Telegram channel.
And finally, there was information in the media that Vladimir Avetisyan, general adviser to the first deputy general director of Rostec, is considered the most likely candidate for this position. Since 2016, he has been a member of the Board of Directors of PJSC AVTOVAZ.
The intrigue will soon be resolved.
Prior to the start of the special operation, AVTOVAZ was led by French top manager Nicolas Maure. He was the president of AVTOVAZ from March 15, 2016 to June 1, 2018, then temporarily switched to another job, but from June 1, 2021, he returned to the position of head of the automaker.
Recall that an agreement was signed on Monday on the transfer of Russian assets to Renault. The share in AVTOVAZ was transferred to FSUE NAMI. The transaction was carried out with a repurchase option, ie Renault can return its share within six years. But if NAMI invests in several of the company’s projects, the share price will be specified during the subsequent return, “there will be no gifts here,” the Ministry of Industry and Trade emphasized.
