MOSCOW. Dec 17 (Interfax) - Oleg Vaksman, a deputy chairman of the Gazprombank management board, is stepping down after more than eight years of service with the bank.

Vaksman said he would make an announcement on his future plans in early 2019. "I am stepping down as deputy chairman of the management board of Gazprombank. I plan to talk about my future steps at the beginning of 2019. I can say that right now my professional focus and area of interest - investment and development of digital business - remains unchanged. In addition, I am maintaining my seats on the boards of directors of Mail.Ru Group and Gazprombank Ltd (Switzerland) and chairman of the board of directors of TsRT," Vaksman told Interfax via a Gazprombank spokesman.
