Shekhterman’s tenure as the top boss is scheduled to expire in May 2021.
Upon approval, he will continue to lead the company up to the day of the annual general meeting of shareholders in 2023.
The chairman of X5 Retail Group's supervisory board, Stephan DuCharme, commented, "The Supervisory Board is very pleased with the results that X5 has achieved in recent years under the leadership of Igor Shekhterman and the senior management team.
