NLMK Group, a global steelmaker, is pleased to announce the appointment of Vyacheslav Vorotnikov as Managing Director of NLMK Lipetsk, effective 5 August 2019. Mr. Vorotnikov previously held the position of NLMK Lipetsk’s Director of Production Planning and Organization.
Sergey Filatov, who previously headed NLMK Lipetsk, has decided to step down as Managing Director for family reasons. He will stay on with NLMK Group as Advisor to the President.
Grigory Fedorishin, NLMK Group President, said:
“It is hard to overestimate Sergey’s contribution to the development of the Lipetsk site and NLMK Group as a whole. He joined our team in 2012. His initial focus was on delivering a series of quick wins at the hot end-operations that account for the bulk of our cash costs. A year into his appointment, NLMK Lipetsk was leading the sector in production output. Every subsequent year, NLMK Lipetsk was hitting new production records, and delivering new operational efficiency programmes, some of which were truly breakthrough. I am truly grateful to Sergey for his contribution to the company’s results and fostering the culture of continuous improvement.
I wish Vyacheslav Vorotnikov every success in his new role, and I am confident that his knowledge and expertise will contribute to Strategy 2022 goals.”
