Port of Tallinn CEO job proving popular ({{commentsTotal}})


So far, a total of 35 people have applied for the top job at state-owned Port of Tallinn. The previous CEO, Ain Kaljurand, is facing corruption charges.

Kaljurand and fellow management board member Allan Kiil were both placed under arrest at the end of August. Both are accused of taking, giving and aiding bribes worth hundreds of thousands of euros in the case of Kaljurand and running into millions for Kiil.

Following the allegation, the entire supervisory board resigned and has been replaced by a board which has no politicians. The new supervisory board is tasked with electing a new CEO and a manangement board.

Kaljurand was the third highest paid state company head, after Jan Palmer (Estonian Air) and Hando Sutter (Eesti Energia).

Kaljurand's base monthly salary was 8,800 euros gross, having received a 2,500-euro raise at the beginning of the year. That is a third more than Prime Minister Taavi Rõivas. Kiil's salary was 8,000 euros per month.
