On 16 March 2018, Augustin Dubnička resigned from the position of Executive Director of Farmak JSC for family reasons. Volodymyr Kostiuk, Chief Operations Officer of Farmak JSC, will be temporary acting Executive Director of the Company.
“We have many times reiterated that Farmak JSC has chosen a European way of its development. Therefore, it was decided to appoint as Executive Director a person experienced in management of a European company, capable of evaluating internal processes and considering the Company's operations from the other standpoint, based on his own experience.
Thus, Augustin Dubnička joined our Company. For the period of his work, we ascertained that we have selected a right vector of development and that the Company's internal processes meet the expectations of the European market. We were right about Augustin and ourselves. However, now, unfortunately, Augustin has to leave Farmak JSC for personal reasons. Still, this will not change our Company’s commitment. We continue developing towards our priority direction, improving production and expanding the map of our presence. Within a short period of time, Augustin managed to gain a deep insight of the Company's work, shared with top managers an invaluable experience of communication and defending projects in English, organized the preparation of the budget and successfully defended the action plan for 2018. We have set the starting point, the goal and the pace. All we have to do now is to move forward for this goal to achieve”, said Filya Zhebrovska, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Farmak JSC.
