Vasyl Khmelnytsky to change the line of UDP’s business
KYIV, December 18, 2017. The UDP company made a strategic decision to change the line of the group’s business with the focus on developing projects in high-tech sectors. In particular, the company will develop new industrial facilities, create industrial and innovation parks.
Managing Partner of the real estate development group UDP Valeriy Kodetsky is leaving the managing position of the general director and withdrawing from among the shareholders to develop his own development brand, City One Development. By agreement of the parties, City One Development will continue to participate in joint ongoing development projects with UDP as a developer and co-investor. That, in turn, guarantees the stable implementation of projects and the fulfillment of all undertaken obligations to partners and customers.
“I am grateful to Valeriy for his contribution to the development of the company and I wish every success in the new project. The decision to focus on own development business does not mean the termination of cooperation. We have reached an agreement that he will continue to work on residential estate Novopecherski Lypki and Boulevard of Fountains as an independent partner,” said UFuture investment group founder Vasyl Khmelnytsky, the majority shareholder in UDP
