Director of the Public Enterprise for State Roads
Mr. Zoran Kitanov, LL.B.

Mr. Zoran Kitanov came to the position of Director of the Public Enterprise for State Roads from that of Director of the Public Enterprise “Strumica-Gas” in Strumica.

Upon completing the Law studies with Major in Judiciary at the Law Faculty of the University “Ss. Cyril and Methodius” in Skopje, Mr. Kitanov began a successful career in an international transport and forwarding company, where he worked on several positions, including that of a Manager, until 1997. His next job was in Macedonian Telecommunications JSC, as a Manager of Legal Affairs, until 2005.

In 2011, Mr. Kitanov became a Director of the Public Enterprise “Strumica-Gas”. While on that position, he successfully implemented the project on natural gas pipeline in Strumica city. There is no natural gas supply pipeline to the city, but he managed to have the project implemented by so-called virtual gas pipeline installation with the CNG principle. Therefore, Strumica became the first city in the country with a gas supply system in the country.

The implementation of the project on gas pipeline in Strumica was continued in the following six years and 35,000 meters of gas pipeline network, decompression station with 2,500 m3/hour capacity, over 30 measuring regulating stations, etc. were installed. In that period, the first domestic gas connections in the Republic of Macedonia were also installed, followed by connections for business entities and agricultural plots, so that wood is no longer used for greenhouses heating, forests are preserved, and environment is protected from pollution. The project also presented a foundation for starting the preparations for cogerative facilities in the future.

Mr. Kitanov received numerous recognitions and awards for the aforementioned project, and participated as a speaker in many debates, congresses and symposiums organized by the Embassies of USA and EU countries. He also took part in symposiums of the Energy Community, headquartered in Vienna. PE “Strumica-Gas” was the first institution from the Republic of Macedonia to be accepted in the Energy Community, thanks to Mr. Kitanov’s personal advocation.
