Marek Woszczyk becomes new CEO of PGE
December 24, 2013
Poland’s biggest power utility PGE appointed former head of Poland's energy market regulator URE Marek Woszczyk as its new CEO, alongside three new management board members, the firm said on Monday.
PGE's supervisory board also appointed Grzegorz Krystek as deputy CEO for operations and trade, Jacek Drozd as deputy CEO for corporate affairs and Dariusz Marzec as deputy CEO for development, the filing said.
Drozd and Krystek had been supervisory board members delegated to the management board mid-November.
Woszczyk will replace the hitherto acting CEO Piotr Szymanek.
PGE's previous CEO Krzysztof Kilian resigned on November 19,
apparently following disagreement with the Polish government over re-launching of a coal-fired power station in the southern city of Opole.
He said that the 11.6 billion Opole investment was unprofitable.
Kilian cited recent management changes as the reason for his resignation. His close associate and board member Boguslawa Matuszewska, in charge of strategy and development, was fired last month along with CFO Wojciech Ostrowski.
