It should be reminded that Volodymyr Zhmak’s candidacy for the position of the company’s head was recommended by the Supervisory Board of JSC “Ukrainian railways” based on the results of an open competitive selection. On August 26, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine appointed Volodymyr Zhmak Chairman of the Management Board of JSC “Ukrainian railways”.

Since 2019, Volodymyr Zhmak has held the position of a member of the Supervisory Board of SE “Boryspil International Airport”. In 2015−2016, he was the First Deputy Head of the Odessa Regional State Administration.
