MOSCOW, Jan 29 (PRIME) -- Sergei Shishkaryov, head of Delo Group, which acquired a 50% plus two shares stake in container operator TransContainer, will be nominated to the board of directors of TransContainer and plans to become the chairman, he told reporters on Wednesday.
УYes, of course, I will be the chairman,Ф Shishkaryov said. He added that Delo Group wanted to appoint six representatives to the board of directors of TransContainer but the amount can grow as Delo Group announced a buyout. УSo, we are thinking about 11 or more, this is a liberal forecast.Ф

Delo Group sees participation of Russian RailwaysТ representatives in the board of directors of TransContainer useful but will not insist on it. УI will meet with (CEO of Russian Railways) Oleg Valentinovich (Belozyorov). We will not insist on it. The position is clear, yes, they do not want to single out somebody among the equals but nevertheless we think that to maintain the level of cooperation this would be useful.Ф
The official said that Delo Group can nominate former TransContainer CEO Pyotr Baskakov to the board of directors but is not considering appointing him as the CEO.
