Russia’s VTB 1st Deputy Olyunin plans to leave his post: two sources

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Dmitry Olyunin, first deputy chief executive of Russia’s VTB <VTBR.MM>, plans to leave his post with the country’s second biggest bank, two sources close to VTB told Reuters.

It was not immediately clear why Olyunin, who re-joined the VTB group last year and was overseeing its banking strategy, has decided to leave the bank.

Apart from VTB group, Olyunin has worked in a number of other financial institutions in Russia, including in Rosbank, a banking unit of France’s Societe Generale <SOGN.PA>.

Olyunin, asked by Reuters for a comment, called information about his leaving “groundless rumors”. VTB declined to comment.
