Former IMF Chief Strauss-Kahn Hired to Rosneft’s Bank in Russia

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, was appointed to the supervisory board of the Russia Regional Development Bank, owned by oil producer OAO Rosneft (ROSN), according to a regulatory filing from the lender.

Strauss-Kahn left the IMF in 2011 after facing allegations of the attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York. He denied the charges, which were later dropped, and he settled the maid’s lawsuit last year.
