    Conor jumps ship as his oligarch patron falls out of favour.
    Lenihan, 50, will soon leave his post as vice-president at the Skolkovo Foundation, a Kremlin-backed technology hub being built in Moscow, to join Renova.

    Lenihan said last year that he met Vekselberg through a mutual acquaintance in Rome after an exhibit of the billionaire’s Fabergé egg collection in the Vatican.

    Vekselberg, 56, has run the Skolkovo Foundation since 2010 as then-president Dmitry Medvedev sought to duplicate the success of Silicon Valley in a bid to reduce Russia’s oil dependence.

    The project faced challenges this year as police raided officesand current president Vladimir Putin overturned an order directing state companies to contribute more than €657m to technical institute Skoltech. Lenihan was hired by Skolkovo in 2011 to help lure international companies to the campus.

    This Renova?
