TPG Exec Leaves Russia

TPG Capital’s head of Russia and Central and Eastern Europe, Geoffrey Fink, has left to join an investment firm in Dubai, as TPG is locked in a bitter dispute over Russian retailer Lenta.

Fink, 41, moved to Dubai this month to join Delta Partners Group and start an emerging markets fund, he said in a telephone interview Tuesday. Pavel Melnikov, a TPG spokesman in Moscow, declined to comment on Fink’s departure or successor.

Fink had been in his post since 2008 and said he worked on the firm’s purchase of a 35 percent stake in Lenta last year.
