Gref’s son deserted post of NEO Tsentr vice-president
The consulting group and its now-former Vice-President Oleg Gref had previously appeared in the case of an illegal seizure of Pavlovskgranit.
The son of Sberbank President Oleg Gref deserted his post of vice-president in the NEO Tsentr consulting group a few weeks ago. As reported by RIA Novosti citing a source in banking circles, there is no information about the reasons for quitting. While working, Oleg Gref was in charge of strategic development, business development, and promotion of NEO Tsentr in the Russian and international markets.
The NEO Tsentr consulting group appears in a lawsuit on the part of the American company PPF Management. In November 2016, it stated its claims for $750 million in the case of Pavlovskgranit. Defendants in the suit are 22 individuals and legal entities, including Sberbank OJSC and its Chairman of the Board German Gref, Sberbank Capital and its Director General Ashot Khachaturyants, Promsvyazbank, NEO Tsentr and Vice-President Oleg Gref, entrepreneur Artem Chaika, сo-owner of the National Non-metallic Company (NNC) Yuri Zhukov, and others.
The case alleges that the defendants are related to the illegal seizure of company, which is the largest granite producer in Europe. The legal company PPF Management LLC, Delaware, speaks on behalf of Sergey Poymanov and Irina Podgornaya, holders of the controlling interest in Pavlovskgranit OJSC.
Head of Sberbank German Gref deemed the lawsuit against himself, filed in the US, a ‘fraudulent act.’ He assured that in the case of Pavlovskgranit, the bank acted in accordance with the Russian law, and called Poymanov’s claim an attempt to evade responsibility.
