Warsaw: Bain & Company has selected Warsaw as the hub of its operations in Central Eastern Europe.
The strategy consulting firm says that the opening of its new Poland/Central Eastern Europe (CEE) office is a testament to Poland's rising economic prominence in Europe and around the world.
The office is Bain's 21st in Europe and 48th globally, and the firm says it will help it serve a growing roster of local and international clients, based in Poland and throughout central Europe.
"Poland is Europe's sixth largest economy and one of its fastest growing. The vibrancy of the Polish and regional economies has accelerated demand for Bain's expertise," said Bob Bechek, Bain & Company's worldwide managing director. "We look forward to continuing to help companies with change-oriented executives grow in CEE."
Bain Partner Jacek Poswiata, who brings 20 years of consulting experience, has been appointed managing director of the firm's Poland/CEE office, which will be part of the consulting firm's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regional structure.
"We are pleased with our fast start," said Poswiata. "The talents of our local teams are already making significant impacts on the complex business problems our Polish and regional clients are facing. While serving clients across the entire industrial and consumer products spectrum, increasing demand in financial services, private equity, telecom, energy and manufacturing will be significant areas of Bain's advisory services."
"The strength and resilience of the Polish economy presents an array of opportunities for Bain and our clients," added Olivier Marchal, regional managing director for Bain in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
