Prairie Mining has appointed Patrycja Wolinska-Batkiewicz to the supervisory board of its Polish subsidiary, PD Co, as an infrastructure, environmental and project permitting consultant for the Lublin coal project. Batkiewicz will also lead PD Co’s community engagement activities.
Batkiewicz was previously Poland’s deputy minister at the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy, specializing in co-ordinating EU funding for infrastructure projects across the country. Before that, she held senior posts in the regional government of the Lublin region, including the position of deputy director of the department for strategy and regional development.
“I am delighted that an individual of the caliber of Mrs Batkiewicz has joined our team at this crucial stage in our development where project permitting and infrastructure development are key development objectives,” said Ben Stoikovich, CEO of Prairie Mining.
