The Supervisory Board of UNIMOT GAZ S.A. appointed a new Chairman of the Company Board of Directors, Przemysław Podgórski, until now a member of the Board of Directors of UNIMOT GAZ S.A., who replaced the former Chairman, Bogusław Satława.

On Monday, 25th August the Supervisory Board of UNIMOT GAZ S.A. appointed Mr. Przemysław Podgórski Chairman of the Board of Directors.

– The Supervisory Board made a responsible decision – explains Adam Sikorski, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of UNIMOT GAZ S.A. – Mr. Bogusław Satława is the Chairman of the Board of Directors  of PZL Sędziszów S.A.

On the other hand, a person managing  UNIMOT GAZ S.A.  has to face  new serious challenges resulting from the intensification of the Company’s activities in the natural gas sector. Mr. Przemysław Podgórski has wide experience in the gas market, he knows this market from many different perspectives. Moreover, he has been working for UNIMOT GAZ S.A. since the Company was established, he has supervised many projects, therefore, I am convinced that with support of the new Board members he will excellently   lead the Company in its expansion into new markets – adds Adam Sikorski.
