In today’s meeting, the Supervisory Board of OMV Aktiengesellschaft decided that Martijn van Koten will assume responsibility for the Marketing & Trading division in addition to his Refining remit with effect from November 1, 2022. At the same time, Martijn van Koten was selected as OMV Executive Board member for the new Fuels & Feedstock division, in which the Refining and Marketing & Trading divisions will be merged with effect from January 1, 2023.
Elena Skvortsova, currently Executive Board member for Marketing & Trading, will leave the OMV Executive Board by mutual agreement as of October 31, 2022.
Mark Garrett, Chairman of the OMV Supervisory Board, “The refineries are key in the energy transition and in the transformation of the company. The focus of the refineries will increasingly be on producing sustainable fuels as well as raw materials for the chemical industry playing therefore a key role in the circular economy. I am delighted that Martijn van Koten will be taking on this role. His international experience in the refinery and chemicals sector as well as his consistent focus on markets and customers make him the ideal choice for this position”.
Mark Garrett continued, “I would like to sincerely thank Elena Skvortsova for her contribution to developing the Marketing & Trading division into a market and customer focused organization. She and her team launched first sustainable fuels for B2B customers, including sustainable aviation fuel. Under Elena’s leadership, the division further advanced and modernized the filling stations’ product and service offering with a clear customer focus. This lays the groundwork for the filling station network of the future, which will increasingly offer sustainable fuels, including in the B2C segment, as well as significantly expand charging infrastructure for e-mobility”.
