Romania’s RCS&RDS could appoint a successor to its former CEO Alexandru Oprea, who recently left abruptly after 18 years with the company, as soon as the end of this week.

ZF reports that an appointment could take place at the General Assembly of Shareholders, scheduled for April 30.

The likeliest ‘internal’ candidates to succeed Oprea are Sergey Bulgac, who has a financial background and has been with the company since 2003; and Valentin Popoviciu, who has worked for RCS&RDS since 1998 and is currently its director of development.

RCS&RDS is the leading provider of cable and DTH services in Romania. It has gradually reduced its presence in other CEE markets, most recently through the sale of the Digi operation in the Czech Republic.
