The appointment comes as part of a wider shake-up in the boardroom of the Polish defence giant.
A special general meeting of the company’s shareholders on Thursday elected a new supervisory board, which in turn dismissed the company’s previous management board led by CEO Błażej Wojnicz and installed a new set of senior executives headed by Skiba.
The position of supervisory board chairman went to Wojciech Dąbrowski, who served as CEO of the Polish Armaments Group in 2014-2015.
Skiba, 57, will be acting CEO of the group until a new chief executive officer is found following a recruitment process, according to reports.
Skiba was previously acting CEO of Poland’s state-owned money printing company. Prior to that he served as a deputy interior minister.
The Polish Armaments Group was established in 2013 in a move to consolidate the country’s armaments industry. The group comprises more than 60 businesses with a total of 17,600 employees and combined annual revenue of PLN 5 billion (EUR 1.19 billion, USD 1.46 billion).
