Changes require proper attitude. Sometimes you have to take a fresh look at the reality. Just apply something and see what works best.

  • 2012 – 2018 – Head of Corporate Controlling at Volkswagen Poznań
  • 2012 – Member of the Board of the International Association of Controllers (ICV)

Digitisation, robotisation – an opportunity or a threat?” Look for the answer by observing the reality, watching, getting new experiences, testing and turning barriers into opportunities. Every controller can be a change agent in a company because innovative solutions do not require cosmic tools but a proper attitude.
