The supervisory board is expected to approve the removal of Sutt from the board effective 22 June, the company said. Sutt's responsibilities will be divided between existing members of the management board, with the domain of customer service and IT to become a responsibility of CEO Hando Sutter and regulatory affairs a responsibility of CFO Andri Avila.
"I thank Andres for his contribution in developing regulatory affairs and client services," Sutter said. "While Andres is an excellent team player, in the present phase of rapid growth, we need a manager with a different signature. I put Andres in the wrong role."
Eesti Energia's management board will consist of four members: chairman of the management board and CEO Hando Sutter, CFO Andri Avila, Chief Development Officer (CDO) Margus Vals and COO Raine Pajo.
The supervisory board of Eesti Energia endorsed Sutt as a new member of the management board and chief services officer (CSO) in early October 2017. The appointment took effect in December.
