Martti Kork becomes the new Chairman of the Management Board at Eesti Energia Tehnoloogiatööstus

Beginning in April, the position of Chairman of the Management Board at Eesti Energia's subsidiary Eesti Energia Tehnoloogiatööstus will be taken up by Martti Kork, employed as Sales Director and Management Board Member at the company for the past two years. He will continue the work of the company's current long-serving Chairman of the Board, Rein Ungert, who will be leaving Eesti Energia at the end of March by mutual agreement.

"The development of the company Under Rein Ungert's leadership has been impressive. Both the complexity and the quantity of projects have grown. Today, Eesti Energia Tehnoloogiatööstus is a company generating a decent profit, and that is Rein Ungert's doing," said Harri Mikk, Member of the Management Board and Director of the Fuels Business Division, commending what Rein Ungert has done.

"Taking the development of the company further, however, requires a person with international professional experience. Martti Kork has this experience, as well as a clear vision of the company's future," said Harri Mikk. According to Harri Mikk, it is very important that the new executive emerged from within the company.
