Evgeny Agureev Named Alrosa Deputy CEO

Evgeny Agureev (pictured), who has served as a director of Alrosa’s United Selling Organization (USO) since 2017, was just named the Russian diamond miner’s deputy chief executive officer.

He will continue to lead the USO and oversee the sales unit. He has been a member of the Alrosa executive committee since 2017.

In his new position, Agureev will continue to develop sales, improve their efficiency and transparency, and strengthen ties with long-term clients.

“Given the difficult conditions in the global diamond market today, Evgeny will continue to improve the efficiency of the entire supply chain of the company and look for new approaches to stimulating rough diamond sales, as well as to increase the level of interaction with the company’s customers and expand the customer base,” said Alrosa CEO Sergey Ivanov in a statement.

Agureev has more than 15 years of experience in financial management in banking. From 2009 to 2017, he held different positions in Sberbank, a state-owned Russian bank headquartered in Moscow.
