Changes in the Management Board of Colliers in Poland

Colliers continues the process of changes in the company's structure in Poland. After Monika Rajska-Wolińska's promotion to CEO for the CEE region announced on July 1, 2021, the company informs about the appointment of new members to the company's Management Board in Poland. Joining the board are: Marta Machus-Burek (Vice-President of the Management Board, responsible for the Corporate Development Strategy), Paweł Skałba (Board Member, responsible for Sales and Client Relations), Piotr Mirowski (Board Member, responsible for Landlord Advisory Strategy) and Maciej Chmielewski (Board Member, responsible for Tenant Advisory Strategy). Thus, they will support the President of the Management Board - Monika Rajska-Wolińska in implementing Colliers strategy in Poland in the designated areas.  

Marta Machus-Burek, Paweł Skałba, Piotr Mirowski and Maciej Chmielewski are the leading experts on the commercial real estate market in Poland, who for many years have been supporting Colliers activities as Equity Partners. Thanks to their extensive experience, professionalism, strategic approach to business, as well as broad management competencies and skills, together with other 3 Senior Partners and 6 Partners in the company, they have contributed to a significant development of Colliers on the Polish market, where the company currently has 7 offices with over 300 employees.

“I have been working with all of the new Board Members for years and I know that their wealth of experience, as well as vast expertise, strengthen the company on its path of growth. A challenging pandemic year is behind us. In order to cope with these challenges, we have built a team that provides comprehensive support to our clients in times of intense change. I believe that the appointment of new members to the Management Board will further broaden the perspective with which we look at advisory services, not only in the context of the real estate market, which will be beneficial to both the company and - above all - our clients. These nominations are also a thank you to the experts for their immense contribution to the company's development so far and the value they bring to the daily work with our clients,” says Monika Rajska-Wolińska, CEO of Colliers in CEE.
