Dariusz Blocher – the President of Budimex – hands over the management of the Budimex Group in Poland

On April 6, Dariusz Blocher – the President of Budimex SA – submitted his resignation from the position of President of the Management Board to the Supervisory Board. This is a planned decision and is related to his further professional development after twelve years as the leader of Budimex.


“After 12 years of performing the function of the President of the Management Board of Budimex S.A, I have decided to resign from this function as of the day preceding the General Meeting of Shareholders of Budimex S.A settling the company’s activities in 2020. This is a planned decision. The reasons for the resignation are beyond the company’s control, related to the possibility of taking over other, non-operational supervisory tasks within the Ferrovial Group”, says Dariusz Blocher. I believe that I will be able to use the experience I gained here in a different way, supporting Budimex and Ferrovial in their further development”, adds Dariusz Blocher.


“I intend to submit my formal resignation immediately after the date of the General Meeting of Shareholders is set, but today I would like to inform you about my decision. Working at Budimex over the last 19 years, I have met many wonderful people: committed, open-minded, for whom our company’s values are important”, emphasises Dariusz Blocher. “Together, we have built an undisputed market leader with the largest, diversified and profitable order portfolio. Together, we have gone through both good and very difficult times, which have taught us humility and diligence. At the same time, while striving to develop the company, we did not forget about supporting others who needed help more. These were years of hard work, but also very satisfying due to the development of the organisation, and with pride in the successes of our teams”, says the President of Budimex.


I would like to thank our investors, contractors and subcontractors with whom we have completed hundreds of construction contracts over the last few years”, adds Dariusz Blocher.


From 2009 to 2020, the sales value of Budimex increased from PLN 3.2 billion to PLN 8.3 billion. Moreover, the number of contracts carried out in the same period increased from 80 to over 200, and the value of the entire portfolio from PLN 5 to 12 billion, with a simultaneous improvement in profitability from 6 to 7 percent.
