MegaFon has lost the head of its Consumer business unit as part of a wider management shake-up.

The Russia-based operator said Mikhail Dubin has resigned as Executive Director of its Consumer Business to pursue other career opportunities.

Konstantin Likhodedov, Director of the Moscow branch of the operator, will replace Dubin in September.

MegaFon said Dubin had “ramped up” its market position in terms of both subscribers and revenue, enabling it to become a market leader in mobile data and 4G/LTE and in the launch of LTE-A services, among several achievements.

Stanislav Frolov, Director of the Caucasus branch of MegaFon, is also leaving.

As announced in June, CEO Ivan Tavrin’s contract has extended by three years until 2018.

Evgeniy Chermashentsev has moved up from his role as Deputy CEO for Infrastructure to become COO.

Alexander Bashmakov, Director of Strategy and Procurement, moves up to Chermashentsev’s former role.

Further, MegaFon said it had created a new position of Director of New Businesses and Partnerships, which will report directly to the CEO.

Yan Kukhalskiy, currently an advisor to CEO, will take up this position.

Tavrin commented: “I joined MegaFon three years ago and inherited a team of highly motivated individuals, and we successfully worked together and achieved an incredible amount.

“But time changes both our objectives and the objectives of our individual employees and, motivated in large part by changing aspirations on the part of certain key employees, we have decided to take a fresh look at our management structure and make certain adjustments to ensure that the management team will continue to function more effectively than ever.

“We regret [the departures] but believe that their replacements, and the other changes in the management team being announced, will only serve to invigorate and strengthen the company.”
