RUSSIA: CEO quits Russian Standard
The CEO of Russian Standard has left the company, just-drinks has learnt.
Carlo Radicati, who had held the position with the Moscow-based vodka producer since March last year, left Russian Standard late last week, a spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today (7 July).
No reason for Radicati's departure was given, except that it was "an internal decision".
Radicati joined the company last year from Beverages & Trading LLC, the Russian distribution arm of Bacardi-Martini Group.
No further details were disclosed.
