Ljubljana, 05 August (STA) - The management board of Gen Energija, the state-owned energy utility that owns the Slovenian half of the Krško Nuclear Power Plant, has been expanded by a member, as the company's years-long director general Martin Novšak was joined by Danijel Levičar at the beginning of August.
Levičar, who has served as management board member at Gen-I, a subsidiary, since 2016, was appointed business director for a four-year term at a supervisory board session in late July.
Apart from Gen-I, he has worked at the Nuclear Power Plant and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and headed the Energy Directorate at the Infrastructure Ministry.
Gen Energija has had a single management board member in Novšak for 14 years, while Slovenia Sovereign Holding (SSH), the state assets custodian, has been striving for at least two-member boards in state-owned companies.
The move comes after the government replaced its four representatives in the company's six-member supervisory board in June.
However, the newspaper Dnevnik said back then that the supervisors who had been replaced were also in favour of appointing an additional management member.
