Moscow, 29 September 2020. SIBUR announces senior appointments aimed at developing the Company's management and strengthening the executive team in key business areas.
Dmitry Konov, Chairman of the Management Board at SIBUR Holding:
“Changes to SIBUR's management team are in line with the senior leadership rotation programme.
The ramp-up of ZapSibNeftekhim to design capacity, the launch of Amur GCC, the Company's new flagship project and a number of other polymer initiatives are the key drivers behind the long-term business growth and higher resilience of SIBUR. This is the reason why we decided to strengthen the petrochemical line by appointing Sergey Komyshan as its head. We are confident that the rotation contributes to expanding the expertise of our key managers, improving the Company's operational efficiency. Pavel Lyakhovich and Alexander Petrov have the necessary leadership skills, experience, and understanding of the Company to take our petrochemical business to a whole new level. In his new role, Mr Petrov will make use of his expert knowledge to facilitate synergies between the production and operations, on the one hand, and finance, on the other hand.
As SIBUR’s director, Peter O'Brien has a good understanding of our business and development strategy. Having held senior positions at leading international and Russian industrial and financial companies, Mr O'Brien has gained a wealth of expertise that will be invaluable given the globalisation of SIBUR’s operations.”
