Croatia’s Agrokor Hires Ex-Central Banker Rohatinski as Adviser

Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Agrokor d.d., Croatia’s largest company, hired former central bank Governor Zeljko Rohatinski as adviser to the company’s owner Ivica Todoric, spokeswoman Manuela Celic said today.

Rohatinski, who left the central bank post in July after two six-year terms, is credited with keeping the kuna steady against the euro.

Agrokor, the largest food producer and retailer by revenue in the Balkans, has attempted in the past two years to acquire Slovenia’s Mercator Poslovni Sistem d.d. The Zagreb-based company withdrew its bid in February, saying the protracted process was harmful to both companies.

While Agrokor is not publicly traded, some of the companies it holds are listed on the Zagreb Stock Exchange, such as its retail arm Konzum d.d.
