Alrosa has appointed Nikolay Gorokhov head of its Vladivostok division.

Gorokhov, who began working for Alrosa in 2001 in its Yakutsk Diamond Trading Company, will be responsible for rough-diamond sales in Vladivostok, the Russian miner said last week. He will also oversee logistics, Chinese market research and increasing the division’s efficiency.

Gorokhov replaces Semyon Lavrentiev, who has managed the division since 2018. Lavrentiev will take over as head of Alrosa’s Diamond Sorting Center in Mirny.

“My congratulations to Nikolay Gorokhov on his appointment,” said Alrosa deputy CEO Evgeny Agureev. “He will continue working with customers from Asia Pacific and strengthening [the] positive image of Alrosa.”

Alrosa established its Vladivostok division in 2016, and the first rough diamonds from the branch were sold in August of that year.
