20:26 | 01/ 08/ 2007

MOSCOW, August 1 (RIA Novosti) - Mikhail Pogosyan, the head of Sukhoi Aircraft Holding Company, has resigned as director general of the company's design bureau, Sukhoi said in a statement Wednesday.

The Sukhoi Design Bureau's board of directors accepted Pogosyan's resignation at a July 30 meeting, citing the official's desire to focus on managing the Sukhoi Aircraft Holding Company.

Pogosyan was also elected board chairman of the Sukhoi Design Bureau, which "will allow him to focus his attention in the design bureau on strategic development issues," the statement said.

Pogosyan currently holds several posts, including first vice president of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), a majority state-owned corporation consolidating aircraft-building companies and state assets engaged in the manufacture, design, and sale of military, non-military, transport, and unmanned aircraft.

The board also appointed Igor Ozar, who was until now deputy director general on economics and finances and chief financial officer of the Sukhoi Design Bureau as executive director of the bureau as of July 31.

Sukhoi Aircraft Holding Company, which is 100% state-owned, holds 50% plus one share in the design bureau.
