Megafon names Tavrin as CEO

Russian service provider Megafon has named Ivan Tavrin as its new CEO earlier than expected, following the decision of Sergei Soldatenkov to leave the company.

Tavrin, the former CEO of broadcasting group UTH, was named deputy CEO at Megafon in January, and was expected to take over from Soldatenkov when his contract expired in June.

The appointment has fuelled expectations that Megafon will launch an IPO this year, possibly on the London stock exchange.
