The decision made by the supervisory board at its session today was published by the Zagreb Stock Exchange (ZSE). Dalić “has been appointed for the term that begins on February 4th 2021, and ends on February 23rd 2022,” reads the statement.

Dalić comes to the helm of the management board after the previous board president, Marin Pucar, died on 6 January in the Koprivnica hospital due to a serious disease.

Answering questions from the press, the current Economy Minister Tomislav Ćorić said that the latest appointment was a good solution for Podravka and described Dalić as a competent expert who performed excellently in crisis management in the recent Croatian history.

I am sure that in the next 12 months Martina Dalić will do a good job, he said.

Asked by the press about the Borg scandal implicating Dalić while she was the economy minister and the Opposition’s accusations that Dalić was politically compromised, Ćorić said that in 2017 Dalić realised that “her further functioning at the helm of the government’s economic department would almost be impossible” and therefore she stepped down as the minister.

Three years after that I cannot see any obstacle for this competent person who has proved her abilities in executive positions in the business sector, in the banking sector as well as in the government to help (Podravka) in this situation when unfortunately we are left without the (previous) successful board president, Ćorić said adding that from the point of view of the Opposition, all in Croatia are compromised.

The Borg scandal concerned members of a mailing group involved in drafting the so-called Lex Agrokor bill, some of whom later became consultants in the restructuring of the indebted Agrokor food and retail conglomerate.
