The board of directors of the Sociedad Estatal de Participaciones Industriales (SEPI) has appointed Ricardo Domínguez as a director of Navantia and has proposed to the board of the shipyard company his appointment as new president, according to the public holding on Monday in a statement. Domínguez fills the vacancy left by Belén Gualda after his appointment last week as the new president of SEPI.
The Government admits “uncertainty” about more Saudi orders to Navantia due to the pandemic and the fall in crude oil
The state holding attached to the Ministry of Finance frames the appointment of Ricardo Domínguez García-Baquero (Madrid, 1970), who currently holds the position of director of the Presidential cabinet in Navantia and is part of its management committee, as “a commitment to the continuity in the course undertaken to fulfill the Strategic Plan ”.
This plan, recalls the SEPI, seeks to increase the workload of all Navantia centers “through an active commercial policy, the diversification of the company’s activity with an eye to green energy and the digital transformation of the business, together all this to an Employment Plan that will rejuvenate the workforce ”.
An agronomist from the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Agrónomos y Montes of the University of Córdoba, Ricardo Domínguez has an MBA and a Master’s degree in Big Data applied to Business Management and Administration from the National University of Distance Education (UNED).
He has experience in public and private management and “has held positions of responsibility and technical profile in the Junta de Andalucía, being General Director of Industries and Food Quality and Promotion and Deputy Minister of the Environment and Spatial Planning”. Between 2010 and 2011 he was director of the cabinet at the Ministry of the Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs.
