We are satisfied that the shareholders of the groups have appreciated it and further Latvia will have its representative in company’s council – and it will be our most experienced colleague Jānis and not only the team of Latvia, but also group’s management trust on his opinion,” says Oskars Ozoliņš, Chairman of the Management Board of „Merks“, „At the same time I’m very satisfied about the new position of Andris because he also has grown inside our company, understanding completely the work culture of „Merks“, and during this year he has gradually familiarized and assumed the main job responsibilities of a construction director.”

Jānis Šperbergs works in „Merks“ team already 16 years – he started working in 2002, but in 2005 became the Member of the Management Board and Technical Director. Jānis has supervised the construction works of many largest objects of “Merks” in Latvia. Jānis has graduated Riga Polytechnical Institute (now – Riga Technical University).
