Having made the decision to continue the career path abroad, Dominykas Tučkus, Management Board Member of the Company and Business Development and Infrastructure Director, is resigning from the positions held at Ignitis Group after ten years of service. He contributed to important energy projects, such as supply of first large LNG cargoes, development of Vilnius and Kaunas combined heat and power plants as well as wind development.
Starting from 2018, Dominykas Tučkus has also held positions of Ignitis Gamyba Supervisory Board Chair, Ignitis Supervisory Board Member, Ignitis Renewables Management Board Member and Vilniaus Kogeneracinė Jėgainė Management Board Chair.
“Over a decade of working at Ignitis Group, Dominykas significantly contributed to the Group becoming an international, modern company developing smart energy. We are grateful for his significant contribution in implementing complex projects important to national energy independence, should it be supply of one of the first LNG cargoes or development of cogeneration plants and wind farms, and we wish him well in his future career path”, said Darius Maikštėnas, Management Board Chair and CEO at Ignitis Group.
Dominykas Tučkus joined Ignitis Group in 2011.

Since 2016 Dominykas Tučkus has held the position of Group Management Board Member while curating areas of generation, services and development as well as contributed to management of other Group companies by participating in the activities of their Management or Supervisory Boards.
Mr Tučkus was also one of the initiators of Ignitis Innovation Fund, which finances start-ups developing energy solutions and companies which are in the early stage of development.
“Working at Ignitis Group has proved on more than one occasion that people are the most important factor in the energy sector – without the support of colleagues, determination and constant strive to improve and aim for new heights, the path which the Group and the entire national energy sector has paved could not have been possible. Ignitis Group has demonstrated time and time again that it can continue to create a better and smarter energy, and I am proud to have been a part of this process for a decade”, shared Dominykas Tučkus.
Mr. Tučkus will continue working in Ignitis Group until 25 June, inclusive.
