Sucher, Head of Alfa Capital, Resigns

U.S. banker Bernard Sucher has resigned as chairman of Alfa Capital, two former colleagues with knowledge of his decision said Tuesday.

Sucher, 46, joined Alfa Capital in 2002 from Troika Dialog.

Sucher declined to comment, as did Alfa Capital spokesman Valery Zinchenko.

"Wherever he goes, he's going to take a lot of success with him,'' said J.P. Natkin, co-head of UralSib Financial Corp.'s international sales, in New York.

Natkin first met Sucher in Moscow in the early 1990s, when they were among the expatriates who came to Russia as capitalism replaced communist central planning. Sucher had trained sales staff in London, Tokyo and New York at Goldman Sachs before moving to Troika in 1993. Sucher also was one of the founders of Moscow's Starlite Diner, a popular meeting place for Americans craving cheeseburgers and milkshakes.
