The Corporate Secretary plays a key role in facilitating open dialogue among our Company’s different governing bodies and ensuring their adherence to legislative and Company requirements. The Corporate Secretary ensures that the rights of all shareholders are observed, shareholder communications are given due consideration by the relevant body and that any disputes involving shareholders’ rights are resolved. The Corporate Secretary’s duties also include ensuring a proper flow of information among the Board of Directors and its Committees and the executive body, as well as facilitating the orientation process for new Directors. The Board of Directors is responsible for the appointment and dismissal of the Corporate Secretary.
The current Corporate Secretary, Yelena Kondachkova, has been with our Company since its early days, when she worked as a specialist and manager in the Strategic Planning Department. In 2011, she was one of the first graduates to complete a certification programme for corporate secretaries of companies within the Samruk-Kazyna holding.
