Brazil: Top corruption buster at Brazil’s Petrobras to step down, sources say

The chief compliance officer at Brazil’s Petrobras is planning to step down in March, four people familiar with the matter told Reuters, in what would be the third exit by the state-owned oil firm’s top corruption buster in three years.

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as the company is formally known, has already launched a process to find a possible replacement for Marcelo Zenkner, a former prosecutor who took the job in July 2019, said one of the sources, who like the others requested anonymity to discuss confidential matters.

Zenkner said he did not want to renew his contract, which expires at the end of March, for personal reasons, the people said. Petrobras typically confirms contract renewals for its executive board at annual shareholders meeting around April. His departure has not been made official.
