Statement regarding the tragic loss of Andrey Varichev, CEO of Metalloinvest

We at Globaltrans are greatly saddened to hear about the sudden passing on April 27th of Andrey Varichev, CEO of Metalloinvest, and extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends. 

Andrey was CEO of Metalloinvest for over decade, having been appointed in 2009, and had worked there since the early 2000s. Metalloinvest has been an important and long-standing partner to our Group and Andrey was therefore known to many at Globaltrans. 

“On behalf of everyone in the Group and from me personally I want to express our profound sadness on the devastating news of Andrey’s death at just 52 years of age. He was a talented man, an extraordinary businessman, a top class professional and a conscientious manager. He will be greatly missed. Andrey was at the very peak of his life and to have it cut short is a tragedy. Our thoughts are with his family as we all grieve this irrecoverable loss and we wish them courage and strength to help them through this time of such sorrow.”

Sergey Maltsev, Chairman of the Board
