Poland General Manager Andrew Mieleniewski welcomed Piotr and Artur to the firm: "We are delighted to have attracted two professional people to our Polish business, and I'm sure their broad experience will play a key role in developing our existing presence in Poland's food, brewing and pharmaceutical sectors, and subsequently building links with other key industries."
