Pawel’s positive attitude and the respect others feel toward him were palpable”

Pawel’s ability to juggle multiple projects was unlike any I’ve seen before and made a significant difference in the productivity level of our team. He was for sure one of the most reliable and hard-working managers I have ever worked with. What I liked in him the most was his positive energy and his professionalism"

Marta Błażejewska New Business Manager at STX Next

"Paweł is a very good manager who is able to adjust his managerial skills to whatever situation that he can encounter. He has very good contact with his employees as well as supervisors. When Paweł worked in Polish branch of OSTC I had the pleasure to be in contact with him very often, his support and good advice to me were highly appreciated ( our offices were at a bit different level back then). He also proved to be an excellent problem solver and a person who likes challenges - as a very young manager he took on his shoulders responsibility to be a country manager in foreign country. I have no hesitation in recommending him and I hope that I will have a chance to work with people like Paweł in the future. "
