Bain & Company has opened a new office in Warsaw, Poland. The new office is the 21st in Europe and 48th office worldwide. Bain Partner Jacek PoÅ›wiata, who has 20 years of strategy consulting experience with Bain & Company (1 year) and McKinsey & Company (19 years), has been appointed as Managing Director of the Polish office. The office will also serve as Bain's hub for clients in the Central Eastern Europe (CEE) region.
Last month Bain & Company also opened an office in Istanbul.
"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."
"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. "We look forward to Jacek's leadership in launching our office and in achieving real results for Bain's clients in Poland/CEE."
