Appointments of privatisation ‘hyper-fund’ supervisory board published in government gazette

The appointments by order of Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos of the first Supervisory Board of Greece’s new privatisation fund – the Hellenic Holdings and Properaties Company SA – were published in the Government Gazette on Tuesday.

The five members of the Supervisory Board will be Georgios Staboulis, Georgios-Spiros Tavlas, Olga Haritou, Jacques Le Pape and David Vegara. Also attached were the CVs of the five board members.

According to sources, Le Pape will serve as chairman of the Supervisory Board and will be elected, along with his deputy, at the its first session. During Monday’s Eurogroup, Eurozone finance ministers asked that the appointment of the new privatisation’s fund board be treated as a priority issue, so that the fund will be fully operational before the end of 2016, in the framework of the second review of the third Greek bailout programme.
