Staff Changes in Corum Group
SCM Group announces the appointment of Yakov Sidlyarenko to the position of the CEO of Corum Group, a machine-building holding. Yevgeniy Romashchin, who had headed Corum Group (Scientific and Production Company “Mining Machines” before the rebranding) since 2010, decided to continue his career outside the Group.
On April 22, 2015, Yakov Sidlyarenko was appointed Corum Group’s CEO. Mr Sidlyarenko joined SCM Group in 2010 by occupying the position of an investment manager of SCM Group’s machine-building business; he was a member of Corum Group’s Supervisory Board.
“First of all, I would like to thank Yevgeniy Romashchin for the great work that he and his team made in Corum Group. Out of disconnected plants manufacturing mining equipment, he managed to form a holding capable to implement large-scale turnkey infrastructure projects, not only in Ukraine, but also in the international market. I am convinced that Yakov Sidlyarenko, who has been dealing with the Group’s machine-building business for the recent several years and knows the specific character of this business quite well, will provide a new impetus to the holding development and help it to survive during this difficult period”, said Nikolay Nesterenko, SCM Group’s Director of New Business Development.
This is how Yakov Sidlyarenko commented on his appointment to the position of Corum Group’s CEO: “I am sincerely grateful to SCM Group’s management for the professional support that I experienced during my work for the Group and for the confidence that I am vested. Corum Group has over a hundred years of history of development and manufacture of equipment for the mining industry; the Group has a serious scientific, engineering and manufacturing potential. In Ukraine, where the largest customers of the holding are concentrated and our manufacturing facilities are located, it is extremely difficult to operate nowadays. But this is why the professional challenge that I am and the entire team of Corum Group is facing is even more interesting”.
