Chief Who Built Gazprom’s Trading Empire Leaves Company

  • Vitaly Vasiliev departs after more than 13 years at helm
  • Gazprom M&T unit now trades gas, LNG, power, carbon, oil, FX

The executive who spent more than a decade turning a Gazprom PJSC unit into a global energy trader has left the company.

Vitaly Vasiliev, the chief executive officer of Gazprom’s trading arm in London, left as part of a restructuring drive, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. Vasiliev was also on Friday replaced as one of the managing directors at Gazprom’s German subsidiary.
