Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa – three new vice-presidents
A week ago, the Council decided to appoint three vice-presidents of the company: Sebastian Bartos, who is responsible for trade on the JSW management board, Robert Ostrowski, who has been dealing with economic matters since August 3, and Edward Paździorko, who will take the position of vice-president for technical and operational affairs on September 1.
At that time, the Council did not appoint a new president of JSW – his duties are still performed (until the appointment of a new president, but no later than August 15) by a delegated member of the Council, director of the Central Mining Institute in Katowice, prof. Stanisław Prusek. Last Friday, the Supervisory Board re-delegated him to the management board, entrusting him with the function of vice-president for technical and operational affairs, before Edward Paździorko takes over in September.
The duties of JSW’s vice-president for development, who has also not been elected so far, are performed by Artur Wojtków, vice-president for labor and social policy, until the appointment of a successor.
On July 9, the JSW Supervisory Board dismissed Barbara Piontek from the position of the company’s president, temporarily entrusting prof. Stanisław Prusk. Tomasz Duda was dismissed from the position of vice president for development, and Włodzimierz Hereźniak from the position of vice president for trade. Another vice-president, Jarosław Jędrysek, responsible for economic affairs in the management board, resigned himself, citing personal reasons as the reason. The dismissal of Piontek and Duda was demanded by representative trade unions from JSW.
