BUSINESS IN SHORT

State Material Reserves has new head

THE STATE Material Reserves Administration (ŠHR) now has new management as the cabinet appointed Andrea Seková as the deputy head of the ŠHR, replacing Róbert Repiský as of May 9, the TASR newswire reported.

THE STATE Material Reserves Administration (ŠHR) now has new management as the cabinet appointed Andrea Seková as the deputy head of the ŠHR, replacing Róbert Repiský as of May 9, the TASR newswire reported.

Until recently the ŠHR had been without a management team following the dismissal of the previous head, Eva Hrinková, by the cabinet of Iveta Radičová on November 2, 2011, in the wake of a controversy over the ŠHR’s sale of state-owned platinum mesh for a fraction of its market price. The underpriced sale reportedly left the state €2 million out of pocket, TASR wrote.

Kajetán Kičura was appointed the new head of the ŠHR by the cabinet of Prime Minister Robert Fico on April 18.

The Fico cabinet has also reversed the previous government’s decision to suspend all sales by the ŠHR and the office is now expected to return to normal operations, according to TASR.
