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 position as of the day preceding the General Meeting of Shareholders of Budimex S.A settling the company’s activity in 2020. It is a scheduled decision. The reasons for the resignation are beyond the company’s control. They are connected with the possibility of taking on other, non-operational supervisory tasks within the Ferrovial Group – says Dariusz Blocher. I believe that I will be able to use the gained experience in a different way, supporting Budimex and Ferrovial in their further development – adds Dariusz Blocher.

Working in Budimex for the last 19 years I have met many wonderful people: committed, open, for whom the values of our company are important,” emphasizes Dariusz Blocher. Together we have built an unquestionable market leader with the biggest, diversified and profitable order portfolio. Together we went through both good and very difficult times, which taught us humility and diligence. At the same time, while striving for the development of the company, we did not forget about supporting others who needed help more. These were years of hard work, but also of great satisfaction with the development of the organization and pride in the success of our teams,” says Budimex President.
I would like to thank our investors, contractors and subcontractors with whom we completed hundreds of construction contracts over the past years,” adds Dariusz Blocher.
