29. July 2019

The GGE Group has acquired a new director for its subsidiary Elgas Slovensko. Elgas is led by Vlastimil Vaníček, an experienced energy sector manager.

“Elgas has great growth potential. I believe that our competitive advantage in the form of know-how shared within the group is very interesting for our corporate clients. At GGE we focus on the entire energy cycle from energy production through its distribution to its supply to the end customer, delivering high quality services and reliable energy supplies to our customers at competitive prices,” says Vlastimil Vaníček. Elgas Slovensko and its foreign branches are suppliers of electricity and natural gas. Elgas was the first in Slovakia to bring a combined supply of electricity and gas. In 2018, they supplied 5.16 TWh of electricity and 2.70 TWh of natural gas.

“I’m glad Elgas has come under the leadership of Vlastimil. I believe that Elgas will show its real potential in the near future,” says Jan Vymazal, CEO of the GGE Group.

Vlastimil Vanicek joined Elgas with rich experience from his previous assignments. For example, he worked as the Sales Director of SPP in the Czech Republic for more than 6 years.

“I believe that by deepening the integration of processes within the group and consolidating our operations, we will be able to focus on expanding our portfolio of services for greater customer satisfaction,” adds V. Vaníček.
