Waterlander currently also retains the post of executive director for the transformation of Naftogaz.
“Otto Waterlander has intensified and actualy restarted the transformation process of the Naftogaz Group for the time that he joined our team. He has proved that global corporate solutions and standards can and should work in a Ukrainian state-owned company. Therefore, we expect that with new Otto’s authority will help Naftogaz become a partner for the shareholder and business, who is a true lawmaker of new work standards,” said Andriy Kobolev, Chairman of the Board of Naftogaz-Ukraine.
Otto Waterlander will be responsible for operational and transformation processes at Naftogaz to introduce a new operating model and divisional management structure, implement cross-functional processes and develop process databases.
It is worth noting that prior to joining Naftogaz Ukraine, Waterlander took part in managing the oil and gas sector at the international level, and worked in various positions in the Netherlands and Venezuela.
As we reported before, Gazprom, the Russian state-owned energy company, continues to charge Poland the price of gas it supplies despite a decision by the Stockholm court.
