He will assume his duties starting from 2 December, following the announcement a month ago that Timo Riihimäki, RB Rail AS Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Management Board was stepping down from both positions.
"Agnis Driksna is highly skilled project management and development expert and fully committed to strengthen cooperation between the project stakeholders and make sure that essential project activities are accelerated. He will replace Timo Riihimäki who will end his tenure on 1 December 2019. In parallel, Supervisory Board will start the recruitment of a permanent CEO," RB Rail said in a statement.
However the company also announced November 26 that Estonian Mart Nielsen, its Chief Technical Officer (CTO) and a Management Board Member had also resigned "to take a new job in the private sector." Nielsen joined the project in March 2018.
The CTO position will be filled in temporarily by Kaido Zimmermann, RB Rail AS Head of Planning and Design Department.
