Marina Sedykh, head of Irkutsk Oil Company since 2000, will retain her positions on the Board of Directors at Irkutsk Oil Company and will remain CEO of the holding company — “INK-Capital”, which she headed since its inception in 2008. Mrs. Sedykh will focus on implementing INK-Group’s sustainable development strategy, working on areas such as industrial safety, employee health and safety, environmental issues, and social policy. 

“I would like to express my thanks to my partner Marina Sedykh for her self-sacrificing work as Irkutsk Oil Company’s CEO. Together, we have travelled a difficult path for over 20 years: from the time the company was established and throughout its evolution into one of the major independent crude hydrocarbon producers in Russia and the largest taxpayer in the Irkutsk region. Marina’s intuition has helped Irkutsk Oil Company overcome hurdles many times. Mrs. Sedykh’s integrity and passion for her native Irkutsk region have shaped the company’s corporate values here, at Irkutsk Oil Company. Together, we will continue to work on sustainable development projects, which are now Irkutsk Oil Company’s developmental priorities,” Nikolay Buynov, the founder and Chairman of the Board said.
