Sadurska stepped down from her position at the president’s office on Monday, to take on the role at PZU, the region’s largest insurer, on the same day.
During a ceremony on Monday, Polish President Andrzej Duda thanked Sadurska for the dedication to her position at the office, saying she had often resigned from family duties in order to perform the tasks required of her job.
Local media reported that Sadurska’s position at PZU carries a PLN 90,000 (EUR 21,465) salary.
Marek Suski, an MP for the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party, said last week that the PZU board needs an individual “who knows the PiS agenda, and implements the government’s programme” to buy back foreign-owned stakes in the Polish financial sector.
PZU is a key player in the government’s programme to “repolonise” the banking sector by buying back stakes of lenders on the Polish market from their foreign owners. (rg/pk)
