Eugene, otherwise known as “Gigsy”, is currently a Sales Manager for Siena Foods with major contracts in Coles and Aldi. He is very involved in the running of the Trembita Café at Sts Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral in North Melbourne. He has been on the committee for the Parish for a number of years as well as spending seven years as President. Eugene commenced the streaming service of the cathedral services and has streamed every Sunday for the past seven years. Sts Peter and Paul’s Cathedral was one of the first streamers amongst churches in Australia and the first of the Ukrainian Catholic churches in the world.
Eugene has been a Director of the AUV for the past 3 years as well as Secretary and Vice President and is the key organiser of our major raffle.
Eugene is also the President of the Australian Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce. He currently finds this a challenging position due to the pandemic as there have been enormous shortages of goods and high shipping costs.
