The Supervisory Board of PJSC Insurance Company “Columnaid Ukraine” on June 18 terminated the powers of CEO Svyatoslav Yaroshevych, appointing him Acting Chairman of the Board, according to the company’s information posted in the system of the National Commission on Securities and Stock Market.

It is emphasized that Yaroshevich is appointed acting pre-management until the National Bank approves his candidacy for the position of chairman of the board.

In addition, the NAB has appointed the head of underwriting department Oleksiy Pilipenko and financial director Yulia Aniskina as acting members of the Board, also before the approval of the NBU.
