Poland fires all gas TSO management, appoints new CEO

(Montel) Poland’s government on Monday sacked the whole management board of the state-owned gas TSO Gaz System and appointed Slawomir Hinc as the new CEO.

Hinc, former CFO and head of the upstream Norway division of the Polish gas monopoly PGNiG, replaced CEO Marcin Chludzinski before the end of his term, effective immediately.

Along with Chludzinski, the state assets ministry fired four other Gaz System managers: Andrzej Kensbok, Marian Krzeminski, Pawel Pikus, Blazej Spychalski and Artur Zawartko at the shareholders’ meeting held today.

The reshuffle comes after similar moves in other state-controlled companies, such as PGE, Orlen and Enea, following elections last year won by Donald Tusk, who pledged to sweep state-run utilities of links to the previous government led by the nationalist Law and Justice party.

Gaz System owns a gas transmission system in Poland, as well as the 7.5bcm/year Swinoujscie LNG terminal.
