Piotr has split his career evenly between line management and consulting. In the former he progressed from project manager through finance and strategy director to managing director, board member and chairman of the board in companies ranging in size from small startups to multinational firms employing thousands of people. In the latter, he did financial consulting with KPMG, IT consulting with Accenture, and strategy consulting with McKinsey.

While most of his work has been in manufacturing and financial services, he has also worked in other industries: from mining and agriculture through household appliances and fast-moving consumer goods to electronics, software and health services.

He has deep experience in strategy, finance, and operational improvement, but has also led multiple projects in market research, due diligence, geographical and product expansion. His primary skill is the quick identification of areas in a company which perform below their potential, coming up with ways to improve them and assisting in turning these plans to reality.

His work has taken him to Western, Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe, as well as the United States, from Route 128 around Boston, through Wall Street and Silicon Valley, all the way to San Diego. Not deterred by professional travel, Piotr has also hiked, cycled, kayaked, canoed, dived, rode, and piloted his way through most corners of Africa, Latin America, and Asia, from Turkey through India to Japan.

Piotr has an MBA from Stanford University, BS in Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and IB from the United World College of the Atlantic. He speaks, better or worse, half a dozen European languages.

Privately he is the husband to a primary school teacher and a father to a 10-year old boy. His primary after-hours interests are history and environment passively and sports actively.
