The PPF financial group is led by a four-member steering committee, which was established in April, less than a month after the tragic departure of PPF owner Petr Kellner. The members are both minority shareholders of the group Ladislav Bartoníček and Jean-Pascal Duvieusart, financial director Kateřina Jirásková and lawyer Tomáš Brzobohatý. The Message List server informed about it.
