Egils Lapsalis to join the Latvijas Gāze Board

On November 1, 2022, the Board of the Latvijas Gāze will be joined by Egils Lapsalis who is set to oversee the matters of trading at the company. E. Lapsalis has almost 25 years of practical experience in the energy sector, the organisation of natural gas trading, including the management of sales and business process projects.

“On behalf of the management of the JSC “Latvijas Gāze” I congratulate Egils on joining the company’s executive team. His practical experience of trading in the natural gas sector and theoretical knowledge acquired on an international level through various energy forums and trainings will help implement the company’s strategic development and attain both short- and long-term objectives”, said the company’s Chairman of the Board Aigars Kalvītis.

The position of Member of the Board at the Latvijas Gāze became vacant on August 12, 2022 when Inga Āboliņa left the company. The Council of the Latvijas Gāze voted unanimously in favor of selecting and approving E. Lapsalis for the position.

E. Lapsalis has worked at the Latvijas Gāze since 1998, dealing with legal and trading matters and also acquiring further knowledge through various international energy forums and trainings.

E. Lapsalis holds a bachelor’s degree in Law and is currently studying for a master’s degree at the Faculty of Law of the University of Latvia.

The new Member of the Board does not hold other executive positions in parallel to working at the Latvijas Gāze and will thus be able to devote all his professional effort to the company’s operation and development.

E. Lapsalis does not currently own shares in the Latvijas Gāze.

The three incumbents – Chairman of the Board Aigars Kalvītis, Vice-Chairman of the Board Denis Emelyanov, and Member of the Board Elita Dreimane – continue in their positions.
