The decision of the Workers' Council of Polish Maritime Navigation (PŻM) to dismiss the CEO Andrzej Wróblewski was accepted by the Ministry of Infrastructure. As the spokesman announced today, Dariusz Doskocz will be temporarily managed by the largest Polish shipping company.

Krzysztof Gogol, spokesman for the PŻM Group, announced that the director of Polska Żegluga Morska, Andrzej Wróblewski, had lost his position. “The Workers' Council of Polish Maritime Navigation PP decided to dismiss the general director of the company, Andrzej Wróblewski. A request in this matter was sent to the minister responsible for maritime economy, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Infrastructure, Arkadiusz Marchewka, and was accepted by him,” Gogol said in a press release .

The audit showed the need for a new company development strategy

The group's spokesman explained that the decision of the Works Council was made “after conducting a thorough audit of the company, which showed, among other things, the need to build a completely new company development strategy.” The foundation of the new strategy will be investments in the bulk carrier fleet, which are the company's primary source of income.

Andrzej Wróblewski has managed PŻM since June 2020. Until the competition is announced and a new CEO is selected, the company will have – as we read in the announcement – an “Interim Manager”. It was Dariusz Doskocz, former chairman of the Works Council, and recently president of the most important company of the PŻM Group – Żegluga Polska SA. Doskocz previously worked for many years at the PŻM Fleet Operation Plant.

The oldest Polish shipowner

Polska Żegluga Morska (Polish Steamship Company, Polsteam) is the oldest Polish shipowner. It has existed since 1951 (created as a result of the liquidation – nationalization of pre-war shipowners' companies). Currently, it has a fleet of 54 ships with a total deadweight capacity of 2.1 million tons. These are bulk carriers in the “handysize” (30-39 thousand tons DWT) and “kamsarmax” (80-82 thousand tons DWT) groups, as well as four passenger and cargo ferries (Unity Line) that operate Poland-Scandinavia connections. In February this year elections to the Works Council were held at PŻM.
