New management team at Posta Romana


The new interim Board of Administrators (CA) of Posta Romana voted Tuesday evening, on its first session, to appoint Ludwik Sobolewski (the CEO of BVB) as Chairman of the Board and Alexandru Petrescu as CEO of Posta Romana, replacing Ion Smeeianu, the Ministry for Information Society (MSI) announced. The new Board comprises: Ludwik Sobolewski (CEO of BVB), Dante Stein (Chairman of the Board of Tarom and former honor advisor of the premier), Alexandru Petrescu (ex-president of the privatisation commission of Posta Romana), Rodica Bizdoaca (ex-manager of Oracle and IBM), Sorin Dita, Benoit Plesca and Adrian Cighi (representing Fondul Proprietatea), the sources informed.
MSI, through which the state controls 75 pc of Posta Romana, has made no announcement so far on this matter.
Yesterday, June 11, the acting CEO of the postal operator, Ion Smeeianu was asked to comment by hotnews.ro, and his only answer was: ‘Thank you. Goodbye.’
According to Ziuanews.ro, Alexandru Petrescu is the former president of the commission in charge with preparing and monitoring the privatisation of the company, and he was sacked by Smeeianu, because he was considered too inconvenient.
Alongside Smeeianu, the Board also dismissed in unanimity the following members of CA: Adrian Apolzan, Dinu Sava Malacopol, Andreea Dana Stanescu, Gelil Eserghep, Sorana Baciu. According to MSI, the motives of these decisions are: proving the salary increase by closing the Additional Act to the Collective Labor Contract (CCM) between CNPR (Compania Nationala Posta Romana) and SLPR (the Trade Union of Postal Workers of Romania) – was made without observing the legal norms applicable; failure to observe the obligations of prudence, diligence and loyalty, acting contrary to the interests of CNPR, obligations provided by the mandate contracts; the infringing by the members of the Board of the supervisory obligation stipulated by Law 31/1990.
The priorities of the new CA will be to consolidate the financial balance of the company, to relaunch the privatisation process and renegotiate with SLPR the Additional Act to the Collective Labor Contract 2008-2018 in order to ensure sustainable financial conditions for the operations of CNPR.
