As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the pension funds and the Croatian Government have reached an alleged agreement that former Deputy Prime Minister Martina Dalic, who was previously deeply embroiled in the bizarre and seemingly endless Agrokor saga, will take over the management of the Croatian company Podravka.
Vecernji list was the publication to initially find out this information from informed sources.
The decision should be made at the meeting of Podravka’s Supervisory Board which is currently scheduled for Wednesday. Should it be true, former minister Martina Dalic will come to the post at Podravka with the strong support of Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, who apparently didn’t remain indebted to her in any sense at all after Martina Dalic resigned due to criticism of the non-transparency of the decisions surrounding the often murky restructuring of the former Agrokor.
The race for the new head of Podravka is starting, here are the main candidates
The appointment will last for one year, for the duration of the term of office of the existing members of Podravka’s Management Board, and a confirmation of the full five-year term should follow in February 2022. After the tragic and premature death of Marin Pucar following a battle with an illness, the fund industry proposed their financier Davor Dok as a ”natural” successor, the local authorities had their favourites, but according to sources, it seems Martina Dalic is set to take Podravka’s proverbial throne.
