- OMV Petrom’s business segments renamed
OMV Petrom, the largest oil and gas producer in Southeastern Europe, announces the appointment of Lăcrămioara Diaconu-Pinţea as member of the OMV Petrom Executive Board responsible for Downstream Gas, starting April 17th, 2015, following the cease of Cristian Secoşan’s mandate.
The appointment of Lăcrămioara Diaconu-Pinţea took place during the OMV Petrom Supervisory Board meeting of OMV Petrom of March 24th, 2015.
During the same meeting, the Supervisory Board decided to change the names of OMV Petrom’s business segments without affecting the company’s organizational structure. The decision was taken in order to mirror the business segments names within OMV Group and to thus enable comparability of financial results reported under IFRS.
Thus, Exploration and Production becomes Upstream, Refining and Marketing becomes Downstream Oil and Gas and Power becomes Downstream Gas.
Gerhard Roiss, Chairman of OMV Petrom Supervisory Board: "I would like to thank Mr. Secosan for his contribution to the company’s performance over the last few years. Mr. Secoşan’s expertise in the energy sector helped streamline the Gas and Power division enabling it to better cope with the difficult business environment. During his mandate the division was reorganized as to sharpen its market focus. We thank him for his efforts and wish him success in his future business plans.
I also welcome Lăcrămioara Diaconu-Pinţea as member of OMV Petrom Executive Board. She has been with the company in the last 17 years and she has also been involved in Brazi power plant project since the beginning. With this appointment I’m proud to highlight the diversity of OMV Petrom Executive Board, 40% being represented by women and also the fact that Romanians who developed within the company and the OMV Group are now part of the top management."
