New CEO for Warsaw Stock Exchange

Małgorzata Zaleska is set to be removed by a special general meeting of company shareholders on 4 January, according to the Puls Biznesu newspaper.

The meeting, which may also result in other boardroom changes, will be held at the request of Development and Finance Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, who represents the Treasury in the company.

Zaleska became CEO early this year and has done some good work since then, according to public broadcaster TVP, which added the main task of her successor could be to encourage more Poles to invest on the stock market at a time when investment is increasingly seen as a driver of the economy.

In a previous reshuffle on 30 November, the government replaced three members of the WSE company’s supervisory board, including its chairman. The January meeting is expected to result in a further reshuffle on the supervisory board.

The WSE company is more than 50 percent controlled by the state.
