SAVA Re Supervisory Board appoints Management Board Members for a new term of office
Taking into account the fact that on 1 June 2018, the five-year term of office of three management board members (Srecko CEBRON, Jost DOLNICAR and Mateja TREVEN) expires, the supervisory board of SAVA Re authorised Marko JAZBEC, Chairman of the Management Board, to put forward a proposal for the composition of the new Management Board.
After completion of the appointment procedure, the supervisory board appointed "a new SAVA Re management team with a vision, ambitious objectives and the energy required to successfully run the company", SAVA Re's representatives stated in a press release.
After two consecutive terms of office, the current management board members Srecko CEBRON and Jost DOLNICAR were re-appointed, while Polona Pirs ZUPANCIC, also a current employee of SAVA Re, was appointed as the fourth management board member.
Srecko CEBRON was appointed management board member for a five-year term of office starting on 1 June 2018, and will continue to be responsible for the areas of reinsurance operations, facultative reinsurance underwriting, and actuarial affairs.
Jost DOLNICAR was appointed management board member for a five-year term of office starting on 1 June 2018, and will be responsible for the management of strategic investments in direct insurance subsidiaries and for modelling, IT, technologies and innovations, and pension insurance.
Polona Pirs ZUPANCIC was appointed for a five-year term of office starting on the day following the receipt of the decision of the Insurance Supervision Agency to award her the license for performing the function of a management board member. She will be responsible for the areas of corporate finance and controlling, accounting, investor relations, and risk management.
Polona Pirs ZUPANCIC holds a master's degree in economics (University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Economics, postgraduate course in actuarial science, insurance finance programme). She was employed by SAVA Re in 1999, and has been the executive director of corporate finance and controlling since 2009.
The current management board member Mateja TREVEN was not appointed to the new management board as, upon the expiry of her second term of office, she decided - for personal reasons - to continue her career outside the management board. "Both the supervisory board and the management board thank her sincerely for her work on the management board, for her commitment and strong expertise and substantial contribution to the development of the SAVA Re Group, and at the same time wish her every success in her new business challenges", the company stated.
