Seven applications were submitted in a new competition announced over two weeks ago for the president of Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa. Interviews with the four candidates who met the formal requirements are scheduled for August 27.
The deadline for accepting applications in the new qualification procedure announced on August 6, which is to select the president of JSW, expired on Monday. Four candidates were admitted to the interviews in the competition for the president of the company. Three did not meet the formal requirements.
The earlier recruitment procedure, announced on July 12, concerned the position of the president of JSW and his four deputies: for economic affairs, for trade, for development and for technical and operational matters. At least five candidates applied for each of these positions. In total, 29 applications were received, one of which did not meet the formal criteria.
On July 30, the supervisory board decided to appoint three vice-presidents of the company: Sebastian Bartos, who is responsible for trade in 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 performed (until the appointment of a new president) by a delegated member of the Council, director of the Central Mining Institute in Katowice, prof. Stanisław Prusek.
