State-controlled gas distributor PGNiG's supervisory board has appointed Mariusz Zawisza to be the new CEO of the company.
The company also appointed Jerzy Kurella as the new deputy CEO and COO, and Jarosław Bauc as deputy CEO and CFO of the company.
The new management board was appointed for three years, starting December 30, 2013.
Prior to the new appointment, PGNiG was headed by Jerzy Kurella as acting CEO. The previous chief executive, Grażyna Piotrowska-Oliwa, was dismissed in April this year amid controversy over a memorandum of understanding signed by EuRoPol Gaz, in which PGNiG holds a 48 percent stake, with Russia's Gazprom.
The Treasury Ministry had no knowledge of the understanding, which apart from the sacking of Ms Piotrowska-Oliwa also led to the dismissal of then-Treasury Minister Mikołaj Budzanowski.
