Russian tycoon unexpectedly quits as CEO of TNK-BP
TNK-BP is owned in equal parts by the British oil giant and a group of Russian billionaire shareholders. The company has been plagued by shareholder conflicts much of the time since it was formed in 2003.
TNK-BP said Monday that it will be managed by "a group of executives who hold powers of attorney related to their areas of responsibility."
Fridman was to stay in the top job throughout 2013.
